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.

    • I'm an elitist because I don't care for your loud-mouthed spoiled rich kid candidate who was delivered to kindergarten classes in a limo. dohkay....
    • Never mind, found a thread on this topic in bowhunting forum.  Apparently depends on what kind of public land whether semi or permanent stands are ok.  
    • Little update: water temp. is hanging around 64-67 right now. A lot of the thick milfoil mats are starting to turn brown. The great fall bite is getting ever so close! 
    • He's outside the political box but kind of like Hillary, a lot of the country hates them or doesn't trust them and really why would they? Seems like now more than ever would be the year for a 3rd party to step up but with this 2 party monopoly and 2 party media we won't get an honest answer until the votes are counted. A long shot for sure but things are shaping up nicely for a lot of people to jump to a 3rd party.
    • Picked up a couple decoys this weekend
    • Step 1 go to your bathroom. Step 2 turn on the light. Step 3 walk in and look in the mirror.
    • On sale is good but since I would have to carry them in and set the up opening morning I don't want to haul a piano in there. We have hunted this spot for about 18 years without seeing a person, now it's getting hard to trust the area.  We think it may be a local that comes during the week with a bolt cutters and cuts the lock cables. Kind of suks.  Will head over to Fleet and check them out. Thanks.
    • I buy whatever is on sale, but dont much care about portability or weight.  Just got some big game 32" sticks for $13 each at farm n barn.  They work fine for my purposes.
    • We had a good opener in Ashby! Kids shot a lot and even got a few  If adults would have been shooting it would have been limits of teal and possibly even some divers. Kids got to drive the trucks around the farm, shoot .22's, shoot some trap and even learned how to row a boat and retrieve ducks, and also how to pick up and wrap decoys. Saturday we saw lots of ducks and had the teal coming right into the decoys perfect. Sunday was not nearly as many ducks and the ones that did come just buzzed us. Had to leave at 8:30 due to kids sports in the afternoon. Great weekend!
