First Time In Alaska

2 posts in this topic

Alright guys, what should I do? Should I go deep-sea for halibut and salmon, hit the spawn in the rivers for them, or get some trout in the streams? I CAN fly-fish, but my dad can't, so it'd have to be one where you can do both. What do you guys reccomend? Who? What time of year?

Remember, the state is a third the size of the lower 48. You're leaving alot of options open in your question(s).

Personally, if you are going for fishing only, and want to do it all, go to Kodiak. Best fishing I've had in my life. PERIOD. You can do everything you asked about there.

Best thing you can do is start looking on the Internet. Try Kodiak Chamber of Commerce. You'll probably have a whole section dealing with guides, charters, lodging, etc.

A brief summary of my two weeks:

6 day drop camp at a river mouth for the start of the silver run. Tons of dollys, pinks and some rainbows along with the silvers.

Back in town, rented an apartment and van for a week. Traveled the 45 or so miles of the road system to see the sights. Fished the rivers off the roads early and late to catch our silvers. Golfed one day. Chartered for halibut/salmon two other days.

Took our fish to the processor each day to be filleted, vacuum packed and frozen for the trip home.

This trip was the first two weeks of September. Look earlier in the season for kings and perhaps better halibut. Make alot phone calls/emails and get references. Do your homework and you will be rewarded.

Good luck!

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
