    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.
    If this thread flys ill post some fish pictures directly, were about to start fishing kings and silvers.

    Alasgun -- South Texas Coast !-- Got about 40 miles of wild beach with Bay on the back side of the islands !-- Kayak and a cast net !-- I should probably get a fishing license?-- Haven't been in awhile -- Don't know how people can live far from the water ?- Hurricane Harvey tore the place up some last year but they the price we pay to live on the Gulf Coast -- It can all be gone in the next storm ! 20180314_132454.jpg

    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.
