First post here so here we go. My wife and I have lived in Texas our whole life. I am at the ending of a career and we want to bust on out of here. Texas is a great place but it is getting overun quickly. I do believe Anchorage is where we are headed. Now my question is about boats. I have 2 and I know my fishing boat will have to be sold. It won't work for Alaska. It is made for the Texas coastal fishing, flat and no sides. It is for fishing the flats in the bay. It runs real shallow, 4" on hard bottom. I have a gator trax boat with a Go-Devil surface drive motor for duck hunting. Do yall use those type of boats or do yall require different boats. I am so Alaska ignorant I don't know what is needed there fow ducks. I have hunted ducks here on the coast for my entire life but never there. Anyhow I am just gearing up the thought process on what to sell and what to bring. 40 years of Texas I have aquired a lot. This will be a @#tch of a move. How about my labs, will they handle the cold? What about them and the bears? All we have to worry about here is gators and rattlesnakes getting them. Check out my websight, I do desnaking clinics here in Texas. I look forward to talking to you fellas.
