Odds are slim but if I have a hook in the water I have a chance.

So those are tags you are given for your quota?

Sorry about all the questions but I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to this.

The tags issued are your allocation for the season. More rules about the state waters halibut fishery can be found at https://www.maine.gov/dmr/science-research/species/halibut/documents/DMRHalibutComplianceGuide%202021.pdf

It's a little murky, but you have to keep in mind that these requirements apply to the state waters only, EXCEPT that if you are fishing in federal waters, OUTSIDE the state fishery you still need halibut tags to legally land the fish in Maine.
