Alaska’s Mat-Su Valley Producing Big Ice Bows

By: Chris Shaffer To be honest I wanted to stay in the hotel and sleep in. I’m more of a fair weather angler and after guide Dustin Slinker of The Bait Shack in Anchorage, Alaska, told me he expects us to get three bites in a half day, I wasn’t excited about fishing. Unfortunately, with [...]

Ice Fishing Action Ramping Up in the Anchorage Bowl

By: Dustin Slinker Visiting Alaska is a dream vacation for many. Meanwhile, most trips aren’t planned during the winter months rather during the summer when it’s warmer and greener in the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Learn To Enhance Your Bait To Catch More Shrimp

By: Tim Bouchard There’s great shrimping across Alaska and along the coast of British Columbia. And, it’s no secret the most important vehicle to success when shrimping is having good bait. Shrimp are scent feeders. They follow the scent trail of the bait. The more scent you put down deep the better chance you have [...]

Egg Bite Shining on Alaska’s Nushagak River

By: Chris Shaffer Regardless of where you sit there’s always passengers talking about fishing when flying to Alaska or within the state. Flying on Alaska Air I was in seat 3A with jet service to Dillingham, Alaska, last week. The flight is fewer than an hour, but it didn’t take that long for the man [...]

Alaska’s Deshka River Sporting Strong Salmon Bite on Cured Bait

By: Chris Shaffer When we booked our fishing trip with Alaska guide Andy Couch a few months ago he suggested we plan for a full day chasing Chinook on the Deshka River. The hope was to gain enough footage to film Pautzke Outdoors on this popular greater Anchorage area fishery without Couch having to give [...]

Learn to Make Super Saturated Roe

By Andy Couch In Alaska it’s no secret that salmon roe is a top bait, especially when fishing for early running king and coho salmon. There are times, however, when a roe-fishing angler may need to, “kick it up a notch,” in order to draw strikes in occluded waters or jazz heavily pressured salmon into one [...]
