Im wondering if anyone would want to join me from anchorage early early friday morning and leave saturday morning. Non stop fishing. ill Fork over all gas money but we split bait and food. If your interested let me know as id really like to go but have to keep cost down do to wife not wanting me to spend alot. Ill drive, Ill Gas, Split Bait. Let me know. Im thinking of leaving around 1am'ish Friday or even thursday night and coming back saturday a couple hours after high tide. Let me know if your interested. Ill take anyone age 18+. Let me know we can meet up to for some coffee to talk about it tommorow if your interested.

    FYI im a 26 Heavily dedicated Fisherman with all my own gear and many years of experience. So let me know in this post or message me with your phone number and name and ill give you a call. Thanks. Military a + as im a disabled Veteran myself.

    Soda I'll get ahold of you later. And to surf cast you just need to know where the butts are close to shore. Also have atleast a good 9' or bigger rod with a ton of line. I use a 9' with a penn reel with 60 power pro braid and another 12.5' with 80 Dacron casting 4-12oz weight.

    but none the less ive lost a **** ton of gear mostly weights cause i use plastic sinker sliders that break farely easy on snags so i dont lose all my gear. But ive lost a good 100lbs in weights.

    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    anyone tried kayaking out a bit further or is it just not necessary? That's popular where I'm from for fishing sharks from the beach. Set your rod in a holder in freespool, paddle out as far as you'd like and toss the bait overboard, paddle in.

    I've done it before with a little 25$ tube boat. Not sure it really matters. Only really helps during high tide.

    Even though we didn't hook up, how did you do? To let everyone else know, AFB was going to come to Wasilla to pick me up. I just could not allow him the hassle just cause I wanted to go too. Are you still down there? Pictures please. May the fishGods be with you too!!!!!
