Don't Forget These 3 Things On Your Alaska Fishing Trip


There is something special about dropping a line down a few hundred feet and hooking into a halibut. These monster fish are an absolute blast to hook into and can fight for hours. They can weight hundreds of pounds and they taste amazing. Equally as thrilling is trolling off the back of a boat and hooking into a king salmon. These are some of the premier fish that you can catch trophy fishing in Alaska. Landing these fish will require a lot of skill on your part, but it is going to be very important that you hire the right charter. These guides know the water and the areas that give you the best chance of a successful trip. These charter fishing trips can be a trip of a lifetime, and here are a few things that you should remember to bring with you on your trip.

Motion Sickness Medicine

The trip of a lifetime can soon turn into a trip to the lower deck if you are not used to the sea. Unless you have spent a lot of time on the water, there is a very good chance that you are going to get sea sick. This is because the ocean often gets very choppy and intense. The swells are much bigger than anything that you will experience on a lake or reservoir. To ensure that your trip is enjoyed to the fullest, do not forget to take motion sickness medicine.

Rain Gear

You may only have a few days to be on the water while you are in Alaska, and you do not want a little bit of rain to keep you off the water. Be sure that you invest in some very good rain gear before you head out. The rain gear will allow you to stay dry during even some of the worst rain. If you are dry then you will be able to fish. Bring rain gear and do not let your trip be spoiled by some rain.

Good Attitude

The guide is going to have everything that you will likely need; fishing rods, reels, bait, but what the guide can't provide is a good attitude. The guide's job is do his or her best to put you on fish, and it is your job to enjoy fishing. Now, it is not uncommon to come home with no fish in a day, that is why it is called fishing and not catching. However, even being out on the water is enjoyable. Bring a good attitude and you will most assuredly have a good time.

Enrolling Your Kids In Sports

After I started having kids, I realized that a lot of the life lessons I wanted them to learn could be gleaned by participating in sports programs. I wanted them to learn how to have friends, work together, and work hard--even though they had other things going on. Because of this, I decided to start enrolling them in different programs, and it was really interesting to see each of my kids start to develop their own personalities as a result of their early participation. Check out this blog to learn more about the benefits of enrolling your children in sports.
