    IMG_0898.jpg IMG_0915.jpg IMG_0897.jpg IMG_0877.jpg living in the last frontier we enjoy a lot of freedom and in keeping with my title i wanted to share some pictures from a shrimping trip i took a month ago. Mostly just mundane hohum Alaska scenery then one of our catch. Your looking at 9 gallons of spot shrimp tails.

    That's pretty both. Alaska has water Keef, but not the sandy beaches like you do. I used to sit in front of the Cook Inlet and smoke pot. We loved alaska, 40 below zero the day we got married.

    I'm allergic to the cold !-- Don't do ice and snow for sure !-- U should see me drive on ice ?-- On second thought being close enough to see me drive on ice is too close to be safe -- Brakes is useless!-- Only way to stop is to hit something !--
    I been to Alaska !-- First time - I was in a summer suit and everything was white !-- It was not fun !

    Keef- we lived in Alice for a couple years, you were the ethnic minority but the people were real nice. (1978-1980) id have to say your gulf shrimp tasted better than ours, these are quite sweet but missing that taste.

    Rose- we have some smallish sandy beaches but due to the short, cool season; beach sittings not a thing up here. Once retirement fully kicks in we're thinking about going outside a month or so each winter to break it up a bit.

    2A011175-9681-46E6-BD28-5CC28C26E61B.jpeg Caught this King today and 6 others along with one silver.
    Hoping for another dozen or so over the next week!
    By the first week of August i consider real summer to be over, anything we get after that is gravy, notice the rainy overcast day? Its suppose to be like that all week. I like to tell people everyday is nice in Alaska, you just have to wear rain gear to appreciate most of them.
    We never loose sight of how fortunate we are!

    Alasgun...


    I have surf'ed the Marijuana Passion Forum for years.
    Its the only forum I post on and I feel right at home here.
    I too, am an 'Old Codger', or 'Fart', as you say,
    having been reported 'dead' {"No breath, no pulse, dead".}
    after laying in a ditch all night after my Motorcycle wreck.
    I look pretty good for a 66 year old dead guy actually.

    But I never checked out the Old Farts section!
    I am an old coon hunter/trapper from the 50's.
    I've 200 traps in my barn right now and am a mastermarksman ...
    and snareman.
    I too have a million good stories and in fact have written a book.
    A book about just that, all my old hunting stories.

    I am amazed by seeing shrimp as big as a lobster.
    Theres fisherman and hunters here! I am aghast!
    I was thinking today about getting the old Harpoon out,
    she hasn't been cranked since my wreck, 5 months before 9-11.
    Trailer tags, boat numbers, fish license, check everything. $$$
    Food, beer and bait and go out to Lake Athens and run 40-50 jug lines all night, {3 hooks each}
    Sleep in the boat and after running the line the next morning roll it up and come in.
    I used to get 150 lbs live weight of Channels and Blues, 4-8 lbs {hatchery fish}
    And have photos of me in the boat ramp area with my catch!
    {I'll look for them.}

    It is good to find like minded individuals where you never expect to find them.
    If y'all were a snake y'all would have bit me!

    Well, were farther and farther from “the intent of the forum” but long as its ok thats good. Man cannot live by weed alone.
    I too ran snares / traps in the Dakotas and hunted coons and cats with english red tick hounds.
    But that was 200 uears ago, now salt water boatings the thing, cept we only have a 4 month season so i wile away the rest of the year on the many projects ice dreampt up diring the past year. Having my own machins shop is an asset.

    Do we have a private message option or do i just keep plugging along like i have? Dont wanna bore or irritate folks.

    Ill look that site over, and yea its nice to know a little more about some of ya’ll.

    Feel free to plug on. I enjoyed the pics.

    I'm pretty sure the only topics banned here are politics.

    Thats great Hackerman, ill keep my politics to my self only to mention that me and Ronald Ragan shared the same birthday and were both left handed!

    A forums kindof a strange place to get to know people and unless we know each other in real life, we only get a piece of the picture.
    Heck, once i get just a wee bit more comfortable ill tell you About the time i got my nut sack stuck in a rifle barrel!!! That’ll make you spew your coffee.
