What To Wear Fishing In Alaska

travel essentials what to pack wear fishing Alaska what to wear fishing in Alaska how to dress to fish in Alaska Alaska how to dress to stay warm dry Hi, it's AlaskaGranny I'm getting ready to do some deep sea fishing for halibut, and salmon, and I thought I would share travel essentials Alaska what I would wear to go out all day fishing in a boat the first thing you need to remember is don't bring anything cotton if you become wet you are going to dry more quickly and you are not going to be miserably cold and uncomfortable so first thing you want is your base layer so I always start with a t-shirt long underwear,and a long sleeve long underwear in a dri fit , dri climate type of clothing they are gonna keep me warm but not hold the moisture in and then you're gonna be comfortable next to your skin the next thing you want is a light weight long sleeve fleece tshirt these keep you incredibly warm, and is simple to take it on and off easily then I have a heavier fleece jacket with a zip so it's easy to take on and off you don't have to keep pulling everything over your head and then over that I wear a fleece vest I like the vest because it is not one more layer over your arms you can keeps your core warm you can add more layers or take them off and do what most comfortable for you make sure you have a lightweight Rain suit get the whole suit I have a jacket and pants in here they are lightweight and pack up in their own little bag they are simple to pack very intense rain storms you want to make sure you have something super heavy duty like Helly Hansen You want to have overalls and jacket make sure your jacket has a hood it's just not practical to not have to something to cover your head the rest of your outfit will include some heavy duty wool socks and neoprene boots make sure your boots are rubber and that they have a good sole for keeping traction whether you're on the beach or on the boat make sure you wear a cap with a brim under your hood deflects the water off your face making your trip more enjoyable I like to include a bandana to keep the wind off my neck and several pairs of gloves I like these these are exactly the warmest clothes but they're lightweight and so I can easily capture the fish hold onto that getting slime all over me but then when it gets cold go to my neoprene gloves make sure they don't have leaks before you head out of being dry is important to you I have waterproof shoes for wearing around the lodge or the base camp let me show you what's in my comfort kit baby wipes, sun screen, bug spray, eye drops, chapstick, an extra flashlight and I have a string around it to make sure if I need to keep it around my neck and I want to look down into my bag or into the fish holding tank I'm able to see what's going on easily I like to have is kind of a waterproof case in case I want to keep my phone or my fishing license, anything like that little important things, this keeps them dry make sure you bring a water proof stuff sack you want to make sure it's a dry sack and it's large enough for your things because you're gonna want to bring that along with you on your daily outing this one is Sea To Summit, and it works great it's very lightweight it does the trick of keeping all of the water out and a nice pair of polarized glasses Fishing is a lot of fun

It isn't just about remembering to bring your pole, your net, and your reel, you have to remember to prepare so you can enjoy the day because you dressed comfortably and you have things that you need Please subscribe AlaskaGranny channel alaskagrannycom

– [Lincoln] Exactly we're going to a spot where there are fish – [Markham] Yeah, out in the middle of the water – [Lincoln] No, we're not going out there – That's where the fish are, I just saw them jump If you catch the beaver I'll give you a hundred dollars

Oh, mosquitoes are attacking me Alright boys – Pedal power (Lincoln yelling) This is awesome – I caught one fish, I threw him in, I threw him super high

– [Markham] I saw you throw him back in, you probably broke his back – He just stood there – [Markham] What do you mean it stood there? – It just like sat there

He just tried to scare us away with his splash

Wait, why's it hard? I think Claire has one, stop, stop, stop, stop the boat Claire's got one, turn it around, turn the boat around Oh Claire, oh Claire – I need you to do it, I need you to do it – Oh my gosh, ah, you got one, look at him

Claire, you did it Look at him, pull him in the boat Claire – [Claire] No – Claire did a good job catching that fish and now we realize we didn't have pliers and those are essential for getting hooks out of fishes mouths so we're gonna head back to the dock You go like this with your feet, me and Alex got it

Alex is the captain so he uses this little steering thing right here Quick transfer, Claire for London and head back out and catch some more fish Lincoln, what's your fish count up to? – I'm at three, whoa, your bobber went – [Markham] What, do you have one? – [Lincoln] You have one, look at it – [Markham] Well dang, you got a fish Ah, look at him, you got it – It's cute – You know what my dad always does when we go fishing? – [Markham] What? – He always lets us pet the fish

– Okay, give it a pet (squeals) Oh good job London, can you pet it? Do you hear those dogs? – [Lincoln] Yeah – It's a sled team that has practices in the summer time Listen, it's out that way (dogs barking in the distance) It's so peaceful out here

(upbeat music continues) The fishing adventure is over We caught, probably, around 40 fish, threw them all back And it's just as quiet as can be And there's the water, it's like glass out there Let's see your skipping skills

Wow, very – Wait, wait, wait – [Markham] You didn't skip it even once

Oh – What the? – [Markham] It just buried it, you wanna skip on top of the water not under the water – [Boy] Look, there it goes – Oh, you got one So, this is a beautiful spot right here

– Did you just go? – [Markham] Yeah, I just walked across Whew, you did it – Yeah – This is one cool thing about Alaska, the trees that are along the river, they don't have very deep roots so these trees will fall into the river in the spring time and you can see the roots sticking up, there it is Oh Alex, that's a good one

Whoo, three No, Lincoln, it's the only camera we have Why would you throw at rock at it? (upbeat music) – [Lincoln] I don't know where that is but – [Alex] It's the trees – But Alex, he knows where he's going I don't know where we're going My dad, he abandoned me pretty much, he abandoned us We rode a four wheeler but someone had to go and take it back, my dad he took Claire with

Oh, that's it, what is that? – [Alex] We shoot moose out of the tree It's like a treehouse, we shoot moose out of it – [Lincoln] Are we going in it? – [Alex] Nah, it's unsafe, the roof fell off – [Lincoln] Okay, he's coming, ah, he's gonna run us over now – What's going on boys, did you go up the tent, the moose tent? – [Lincoln] No, it's broken down, the tent, you know the

– Uh huh, I thought for sure they were gonna go up the moose tent, what did you guys do? – We walked – [Markham] Alex is gonna give us a tour of the underneath, the belly of the cabin, what do we got in here Alex? – Well, we got two fishing poles – [Markham] Everything you might need including a chainsaw

What do you use – Yep – [Markham] the chainsaw for, bears? – You could say that There's a beehive over here – [Markham] Oh, look at that thing You can see it from this side

Is it dead now? – [Unison] Yeah, it's dead – [Markham] Alex, how old is this cabin? – 1950s – [Markham] What's changed since 1950s to now? – Uhhh – [Markham] This is Alex's favorite out house – Welcome

– [Markham] Oh, there it is, looking good down there Looks like that's been used quite a bit, Alex This one's nice, the toilet paper is white Why is there a broom in every outhouse? – I have no idea – I have some idea

– [Markham] What is is? – Because there's a broom in every outhouse – I think it's because they want you to be tidy – Well, the squirrels get in and the reason why the outhouse toilet paper's under the coffee cans is because the squirrels will take it all and make it for their nests And this is a scallop for calling moose You rub that against a tree

This is off a shoulder blade of a moose – [Markham] Whoa – And it makes noise (scrapping noise) – [Markham] Okay, it sounds just like when they do it Abby, what's your favorite thing about this cabin? – I like a lot of things – Abby knows everything about this place

She's been telling us all kind of trivia How long have your ancestors been in Alaska – I'm the seventh generation – Seventh generation Alaskan, right here, seventh generation Her ancestors were the ones that built that cabin

This is Leslie's sister's daughter, and so, they still live up here in Alaska So, she can hold the claim to that seventh generation Alaskan If we would have been in Alaska instead of Utah, or Arizona, or New Mexico, wherever we were, then Claire would be seventh generation Alaskan, but sorry Show us how that swing works Oh yeah, whoa, you lost your hat

This swing, how many years you think this has been here, Bill? – 25, maybe – [Markham] 25 years old – Probably, 1980 – This swing is officially as old as I am, 1980 Leslie remembers, when she was a kid, swinging on this swing and she turns (beeping) next week

I might have to edit that part out of the video but she turns (beeping) soon Claire, how you liking this cabin? Can you give us a tour of the inside of it? We still haven't even seen the inside – Yeah – [Markham] We need to see everything in here Okay, so here's the door, giant wood, bear proof

– And this is the couch area and then there's a bed right here and this is a bunk bed – [Markham] Up there? – Yeah – [Markham] Whoa, you could sleep like three people up there Look at that fish on the wall You know what this is right here, Abby, the black stuff? – [Abby] Baleen

– [Markham] Baleen, what's baleen? – Baleen is whales, their mouths sorta – [Markham] Yep, why do we have these kind of creepy masks There's one right here, there's one right there – [Abby] They're Eskimo masks – How's that, wow, is this made out of real Eskimo peoples faces? – I don't think so

– It is not made out of their faces And Bill has something that shows that Lincoln's ancestors also cut stuff open, this is a bayonet from World War One? – Yes – [Markham] Oh my goodness Can you believe that your grandpa killed a unicorn? – [Claire] London would be mad – [Grandpa] She was when I said that

– [Markham] It was the last unicorn The last living unicorn – [Grandpa] It's a mountain goat – Unicorn, where's the uni (gasps) – We just had two squirrels and we accidentally separated them One of them just started screaming at me (squirrel screaming) Oh, he's going around Think you can escape us, buddy, he knows the shortcut

Alright, that's the end of our squirrel adventure We need to get back to work I am going to set something up so that we can cut open a something We're gonna cut open this fish that sings because come on ♫ Here's a little song I wrote ♫ We are going to try to cut away the rubber so that it's just the body and it's like muh, muh, muh, muh

It should be funny Alright, we are finishing up We just finished cutting open the singing fish It felt good to destroy that singing guy He had it coming, he's been annoying for like 15 years

It's 8pm right now and the sun is still really high The sun will set around midnight, but really it just drips, drips, drops below the mountains and it comes back up about four in the morning So, some golf courses are open for 24 hours So, we're gonna try to do some little midnight golfing Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow night

If we're too tired, go to bed, and this vlog ends or if we are not too tired we'll go hit some golf balls til midnight
