I have my fingers crossed on a possible job opp in anchorage and with my growing enthusiasm - I am reading everything I can about the area.
I work to support my fishing and hunting addictions. I mostly archery hunt - and elk have been my passion for as long as I can remember. I have travelled to Alaska several times. Fished several times both salt and fresh and I have harvested a moose on a fly in (I thought elk were tough to backpack). I have some friends in Anchorage that have a couple toys (sleds - oooops snow machines) and some in Fairbanks that have ALL the alaska toys (sleds, boats, planes, cabins). I think that me and alaska would go well together.
If I make it up there I would just have to get a jet boat of some flavor (looking at the phantom) and would like to fish salmon and maybe do some shrimping, crabbing, and clamming (I have never shrimped before) and so I am wondering:
Is there any shrimping near anchorage or do you have to go down the penninsula to get into them?
What about clamming - is there see toxin issues for the bay by anchorage.
