Parents moving to alaska!

Recommended Posts

I'm here in the land of the midnight sun at this very moment helping my parents move in!! After retiring, my dad wanted to leave Houston TX to come back here (we spent 2 years here some 14 years ago or so)

They've got a place in Anchorage now, on the hillside with a great view of the inlet and mountains across the way. We spent the past week taking a family vacation at a lodge near coopers landing, and had a bunch of great fishing. Had some decent fishing for reds in the streams, and with 3 of us fishing sea fishing out of seward we pulled in 58 lbs of coho filet (not fish, but FILET! I was happy to say the least) in a single day.

They got all their boxes delivered yesterday, so today the unpacking will begin. I'll be back in Minnesota on the 31st, but it will be great to come visit my parents here! Nothing I love more than salmon fishing!

I just wish I could stay through august for the coho run in the streams smile I may luck out and find a place or two where they are running during my last week before I gotta leave.

Thats nice mainbutter, Los Anchorage is as close to Alaska as you can get without actually being in Alaska, but a 40 minute drive in either direction, gets you there smile

I like that saying fishermann. Hadn't heard that since I lived up in Seward.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
