So this is my first post to the forum, and I have lived in Alaska for several years now, enjoy the outdoors, but I want to try something....shrimping. Right now I currently possess a 16ft Hewescraft with a 70hp jet, on a nice day is this suitable for taking out of Whittier (not far by any means) maybe a couple miles? I am really interested in shrimping, and on a "nice" day where the seas aren't too rough, is this achievable from this sort of craft? Any other considerations I should take into account? Im not expecting to run to Montague and back (cause I don't have that range), but rather just do some shrimping out of, maybe an overnight camping trip in and around the canal near Whittier.
Any input would be appreciated.
