Sorry slow to reply...
5 of us went out. One had a kayak of his own, the rest of us rented some cheap kayaks 20$ for a day, 3 sit on tops which had slow leaks and began to really sag when we were coming back. I was in a sit in without a skirt that was starting to get significant water inside by t...

I know they got some kayak fishermen on here so I figured this would be a good place to go.
I recently went on a amazing yak trip out to some rigs and caught a few really nice reds, so I'm hooked. We went out with a few buddies and did it kind ghetto, with cheap kayaks and minimal ge...

Missed that... Thought the board needed more sources for rental gear ha
I'm taking a break from king salmon fishing so I can't be expected to read too much. It's gorgeous out here!
Thanks for the recommendation y'all.
Have a good one!...

Some buddies who own their own kayaks are headed out this week from Grand Isle. Anyone have recommendations where I can rent a kayak for 1-2 days in Fourchon/Grand Isle area?

I admittedly lurk a pretty good bit, but seeing your music tastes, thought I could get some help here.
Played an open mic recently and got an offer to play a solo gig at the same place. Probably a 2.5 hr or so set. I have a pretty good list of songs that will cover that time, but wa...

Yeah, I have been pretty lucky to see some parts that not a lot of people get to see and they were great experiences. My family is not a very "touristy" family, but I have gotten to do a glacier cruise and some of that stuff. There are plenty more things on the list. A family friend does the inland ...

Most scared I've ever been in my life was when I was walking through 8 foot alders near the Moraine creek stepping over bear droppings and nesting areas with nothing but my fly rod. The guide laughed when I asked if he carried a firearm...The bears were everywhere, kinda freaky....

The family that invited me tells me stories about the caribou herds that pass their camp up there and that has gotten me really motivated to finally get up there.

I have been lucky enough to be invited to go up to the North Slope, I believe in Anaktuvuk Pass to hunt. When I go, it will probably be in that area mostly, but if I start going more, I will branch out and check out other regions.
Thanks all for your input....

Thanks to the both of yall for the input. A friend of mine mentioned that the .300 win mag was probably the best double duty gun, so I guess I'll start looking at those. Any recommendations on specific models?
I am unsure as to how sure how often I'll use it in Alaska, but I don't want to have to...

As a current second year med student, I can say, from my experience, a good GPA in anything you do is what is important. Pick the major you enjoy and just do well in it, round that out with extracurriculars and overall just put together a well rounded application. As for doing a bio sciences major t...
