Scenario: You want to retire to a coastal area so that you could do lots of fishing – both ocean and rivers. You own a 21 to 24 foot aluminum boat with either an outboard mounted on an offshore bracket or the same boat with a pump (you decide) so you are limited to the capabilities of this boat. What areas (or city) would be in the running for the following?
1. Variety of fish species (salmon, halibut & other bottom fish, and crab & shrimp)
2. Distance (miles/time) to the above species
3. Quantity "
4. Quality "
5. What else?
I am leaning toward Homer, Valdez, Petersburg, and maybe one of the cities on POW. I really like Valdez but I think the distance to good halibut fishing may be a little too far for frequent fishing. What do you think?
