[QUOTE=Alaskan Sea-Duction;738952]Not good.......

Looks like its just a particular (and pretty small) area around Juneau that normally has a winter/summer season, and they've announced the winter sport quota has been taken...

http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/static/ap...1008289456.pdf

Is the daily limit elsewhere usually 3? That's what I found at

Regulations - Southeast Alaska Personal Use King Crab Fishery, Alaska Department of Fish and Game

But the regulations state that king crab is open to residents only...are you a resident? They definitely favor residents!

Chinook (King) will open in just a few places. The rest is closed for the year. The closures are for the "Inside" but remains open on the "Outside" (read Sitka or Pacific side).

Yes I am an Alaskan resident.

At the sportsman show in Portland yesterday many of the guides/lodges was not even aware of the closures.

Portland is quite removed from Alaska.

Where do you live ASD?

You guys should expand your horizons. There’s much much more to Alaska than fish. And fish are not plentiful anymore.

We are snow birds and retired. South in the winter, north in the spring and fall.

Oh no no no no!!! Don't tell the Admiral anything like that!!!!

To her she would rather fish, than breath.....

We may be dealing with the same issues in BC this summer. They haven't announced anything for sure yet.

Personally I don't fish for Chinook while in Alaska. The non resident fishing license is $145.00 and if you want to fish Chinook it is and extra $100.00 for that endorsement. So that's $490.00 for myself and wife for a yearly license to fish in Alaska.

In BC the non resident license is $106.05 and the salmon endorsement is $6.30 for a yearly saltwater license.

In Washington ( my residence) with my senior discount ,it runs $8.05 for the license, $7.50 for a shell fish license, and $8.75 for the crab endorsement, $24.30 all together.

So lets see: If I want to fish, crab, and catch shrimp in my home state, on the way north thru BC, and in Alaska, it will cost $988.00 just for the licenses for myself and wife. It really gets crazy when you you add on the price of down riggers, fishing rods and gear, crab and shrimp pots and gear, electric puller to pull the shrimp pots, and a small boat capable of doing all this fun stuff safely ( I tow a 15' Arima )

I have my "forever" fishing license, no fees, no endorsements, no renewal, but I am still required to record my harvest for some species in some areas. Post 60 years of age there are a few age related benefits, and Alaska definitely does favor residents. Post 65 there are no property taxes on my residence either.

Salmon are very specific where they are and when, so even in bad years if you are in the right place at the right time you catch. A week too early or too late, you would swear the ocean was a desert...

In years like this, I get a King stamp, but advise guests/crew to skip it, unless they feel pretty flush with cash. Our kid fishes for free on my license, including being able to keep a King.

Without the King stamp, we still dine on Coho, Halibut, Dungeness crab, and Spot Prawns all summer. And every once in a while the kid gets a King (which at market prices is always worth a good bit more than $100).

To us, well worth the license cost. And fun too.

Nice fish! It's hard to tell from the angle but must be at least 50 lbs?

Now that we are no longer residents, my wife and I usually just buy a salmon or two when we get to Sitka.

Thanks AKDoug,

We headed and gutted it before weighing, but the processor in Craig said without those it was still 39lb - a 50 pounder easy. Kid was 10 years old, weighed only 55-60 lb himself - caught it mooching. He should have entered the salmon derby.

I am opposite from you. Alaska is $39 but Washington is over $100. Same for Canada minus the exchange rate
