Parents moving to alaska!

3 posts in this topic

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.

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
