I'm new to the forum, and AK for that matter.
I live in the mat-su valley. and have only been in AK for about 9 months..
My father is coming to alaska for the first time in mid july. he is from kansas and is an avid lake fisherman.
I'm trying to plan about a 4 day fishing trip. the thing is, i don't know where to take him, and I cant afford to pay a guide/charter. We just want to do some father and son time fishing.nothing too fancy but of course we want to get some good fishing in, but i'm not into the whole "combat fishing".
I dont nessecarily need to stay in the mat-su region, but can't really afford to charter a plane for more remote fishing destinations... so driving is the plan...
anyone who can give advice on where to go... and types of bait/lures etc etc etc we may need....
Like i said, he's never been here... and this will be the first time in 7 or 8 years that i've even gone fishing... so any and all advice is appreciated...
help a new kid to alaska impress his dad!!!
ps, first time my dad and I will be spending a week together without mom and the sisters in about 20 years... so i'm trying to get this one right... lol
