    Default Heard the Blackbears are out in Valdez?

    I was talking to my Taxidermist about bears and that I would like to go down to Valdez for a blackie and he said a client's friend already shot two down there and the client was heading down this weekend.
    Anyone know about the bears coming out down there as of yet? He also had a seven and a half footer grizz that was just shot a little south of us and it had a big rub spot on it,you think this is from being in the den? Anyhow good luck on ya'll out there.Daniel

    Default Snow

    They might be out but the southern slopes out from port are still 80% covered with snow. Any other slope is covered. Better bring snowshoes unless you are taking an hour boat trip.

    Supposed to be a warm weekend and rain beginning Sunday. That should kill the snow.

    Default Potato Point

    Check out the web cam for Potato Point. It will give you a real good indication. I shrimp every 2-3 days out there and am actually hauling some baiting supplies out tomorrow depending on weather. (small craft warning) I have been looking on the open slopes but nothing. I might fish for a bit tomorrow so I can glass a bit longer.

    Default Sunday

    I just took a bait barrel into the woods today a few miles out of port. There is a foot or so of icy, crunchy snow int he woods yet. Made for sliding of the barrel along but no signs of anything.
