well it is an absolutely gorgeous day here in alaska and i'm gonna try and catch some hooligan and hooligan are the first fish of the year everything's very seasonal here in alaska and these hooligans come in from the ocean into the rivers and they're the very first fish to do that so we're.
Gonna take these hooligan and use them as bait for a big camping fishing trip i've got planned this week welcome to tourniquet arm one of the most extreme tides in the world here they get a 32 foot tide over that way is the pacific ocean the gulf of alaska and cook inlet it comes in here to turn again arm.
And there's a series of glacial rivers up that way that the hooligan are heading towards that's a hooligan right there there's one hello look at this yeah that's more than enough right there there's a guy just upstream of me that's.
Doing pretty good i'll go over and chat with him real quick oh look at that nice nice little hole right here yeah it is oh my goodness so when we uh we're smoking at home i got a big family at home we've been eating these.
Thousands of years yeah awesome we make oil out of them oh yeah yeah you put them in cookers uh cook them down for several days and skip it right off the top what do you use using for just cooking cooking preserving food kind of like seal oil kind of like this all right now that i got bait i'm gonna pick up my son jacob and we're gonna go.
Camping and fishing for three days ready to do some fishing yes i am excellent ready okay all right here we are it's just me and jake captaining our own boat me and jake have.
Rented this boat for three days and we're gonna be camping on this boat and we're gonna be fishing for rock fish and halibut and dropping shrimp pots and of course we're gonna have some awesome fish to cook up too but first things first we got about an hour jog through some of the most gorgeous landscape in north america.
so all right i've been driving along for about an hour and i found a spot with an underwater cliff at about 400 feet and it looks like a good spot to try for some shrimp so we're going to drop some shrimp pots.
We got these little big cages i'm gonna fill them up with chopped up hooligan shrimp pellets and herring oil got some of our fresh hooligans we're gonna go head out deeper and see if we can find some fish in over a thousand feet of water we're going to be fishing between 500 to 1500 feet of water.
Using two to four pound lead so you can't do it by hand it's just brutal to try to reel that up and checking your baits and things like that just become a massive chore unless you've got electric rails got a two pound lead weight here you see basically i just got two hooks with these little blinking lights on.
Them as soon as they get wet they activate and they'll attract fish deep down in the darkness got two nice chunks of squid on our hooks and drop this down right now we're in about 450 feet of water it's gonna take about a minute for that two pound lead to get all the way.
To the bottom there we go all right let's go get another run out oh yeah he's on there okay watch this jake you ready isn't that cool it's gonna take a couple minutes to reel this thing up.
All right we've done about a minute and a half and we just got halfway up all right jake you wanna you wanna reel it here come here oh you got that oh that's heavy oh i could see something look at that how do you get the baby.
Hell of it oh look at that little baby chicken hell of it you want to keep them or send them back all right we've been fishing about five minutes and we already caught a halibut well we've been drifting around for about an.
Hour since we caught that little halibut and not much has happened since then so we're gonna pick up and try another spot jake do you want to try reeling up the rods yeah okay go reel up your rod this way over that way like this see this just watch your fingers don't let your.
Fingers get caught in them there's 650 feet of line out here it's going to take a while to pull those up oh look at this oh there's a little baby fish on here that is a yeah that's a dusky rock fish a little tiny one but he's a tasty fish.
I'll put him in the ice box first mate jake get in your seat all right is this fun jake yes yeah it is all right guys we went a little deeper we're in about a thousand feet of water okay bombs away 989 feet oh that looked like a fish jake.
Yeah that's a bite right there that was a bite go check it buddy yeah you know how wow look at you look how much yours is that i think you might have something on there jake.
All right oh oh oh we got a mess that's what we got all right the shrimp pot's been in the water for about three hours now we're just gonna check it and see if there's anything in it if there is we're gonna.
Throw it back and let it sit overnight if not go try another spot all right there we go there's two oh oh oh.
Wow wow look at those beautiful prawns all right oh look at that that is cool well i mean that's not the most amazing pull ever but that's not bad for just three hours i think we need to just go put our pots back and let it sit overnight and we'll get a bunch of these tomorrow what do.
You think jake all right we're going to let that sit all night long should we start getting ready for bed yes this is house so josh that's how soldiers get ready for bed that's right yes so you're all soldier jammies.
Got all camo'ed up well it's getting late so we're gonna find a spot close to our shrimp pots where we can aim her up for the night and uh we're just gonna fish and cook and take it easy and just have a good night here on the boat oh yeah hold on i gotta drop the anchor all right guys well since we're anchored up i'm gonna make a little chum bag and.
We're gonna chum this spot up and fish while we cook and camp and it'll be real nice and we want you and soaks definitely like that yeah we've got like a four pound lead and a snagging hook the snagging hooks got the ziploc bag.
Through the tough part on the bottom reel up there you go it just tears a hole all the chum goes out the garbage comes back up oh that's a big carrying of water oh are you going to set something on fire.
Well what's his channel oh i think i got a fish on here you don't take this rod i just gotta bite you oh look at this oh yes.
A rock fish that's a quillback rock fish that is a delicious fish not a huge one but definitely a keeper oh yeah we got one look at this oh nice yeah it's a yellow white rock fish whoa another tasty fish the spots turned.

Well it is gorgeous out here oh look at this these are a tasty fish but you're only allowed one per day so i think i'm gonna go ahead and send him back he's in pretty good shape i'm gonna go ahead and use this deep releaser let me go and hook the fish's mouth like this when you pull a fish up for more than.
About 60 70 feet he gets what's called barotrauma where his air bladder expands from coming up from the deep flasher and it and it makes so they can't swim down you just take it down there shake them off reel it up oh oh man what a haul look at all the sea lice.
There we go nice octopus specific octopus that's a small one but they are tasty me and jake got to catch and cook some of those just a few weeks ago i'm looking forward to doing that again oh yeah look at that little sea urchin.
Oh look at all the lies good morning jacob good morning all right we're gonna try something a little different we're gonna fish a little bit shallower we're in just 200 feet here we're gonna see if we can't pick up some rock fish but jigging there we go got a fish.
Look at that giant sculpin right there look at that nice you know the wind and the waves have picked up just a little bit i don't like it i think i'm gonna go find another spot ready go for a drive jake all right we're gonna just try a quick.
Drop here oh 330 feet to go check it out it's a yellow-eyed rock fish oh you got one jake oh no it's a kelp gree league you want to throw it back.
Here bam just got another one right away oh nice oh a dusky rock fish oh another yellow eye oh look at that.
Look at that jake wearing them thick here there you go jake yeah yes oh another yellow eye is it is it a dusky or is it a quail back i think it's a dusky oh it's a dusky rock fish perfect there we go a dusky.
It's a little golden eye man this has been a nice little honey hole we probably pulled 12 rock fish out of here so i'm gonna pull up and just move down this coast and try a few more spots and see if we can get into some dusty rock fish or maybe some lean cod and maybe some halibut we got a couple bites on this.
Sir oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah go hold on what do you think it is what do you think it is oh look at that monster what is that oh look at this a massive yellow eye oh yeah this is what we've caught before look at.
That that is a big one look at it look at the size of him i think we're gonna keep this one check it out we're in the middle of prince william sound the gulf of alaska is just right over there and it is just quiet and calm as glass out here look at look at this water oh look at that.
Okay i know some of you guys may think these electric reels are cheating i love them i'm absolutely spoiled i may never go back this is so nice oh yes look at that beauty you can see coming up from the depth.
Absolutely trashes the fish makes their eyeballs pop out see his liver his air bladder will come out but luckily that one is super tasty so uh he ain't going back oh my goodness these things make amazing fish tacos oh i am i am pleased you know these electric reels just let.
Me fish spots i would never fish otherwise cranking up four pounds of lead over 600 feet is miserable stuff the electric reels let you get to spots that no one else is really touching yeah there it is there we go look at that.
Oh we got we got two shrimp that was pretty pitiful look at this see it's got a little creature in it i'm gonna put fresh bait in all of these and uh we're gonna try a different spot all right buddy you doing well down there you staying warm down there yes good.
The heater comes out under the table and so that's where i find jacob let's get some dinner going here i want to eat some shrimp these shrimp are just massive oh they're so delicious it's chocolate milk oh yes.
That's soldier chocolate milk look at the size of these shrimp these things are huge oh those hooligan made great bait i'm almost out of all the hooligan i caught oh look at this a nice cool back rock fish one two three.
Because the rockfish kind of inflate like balloons when you bring them up from the depth you have to use these deep water releasers to get them back down once they get down to depth they go back to their normal size and buoyancy and they can swim away so basically you just put this through their bottom lip send them down when.
They get to the bottom you shake the fish off the hook bring the hook back up all right okay hop in there all right lay down buddy you're down it's bedtime well it's been a wonderful day but it's late and i've got to get to bed i'll see you guys in the morning.
we we lucked out with the weather on this trip i think this calls for a little more fishing um yeah let's do that i'm gonna go pull anchor all right first mate jacob shall we go find a fishing spot let's do it.
We're in a little bit shallower water it's only about 500 feet here so i'm gonna use my weighted jig with a hooligan head on it see how this goes hey check it out it's the kennecott that's the ferry that goes from washington state to whittier alaska me and jacob spent five days on that ship it was part of our longest road.
Trip in the united states video where we drove from key west florida to dead horse alaska it was a good time jacob yes it was that was a fun trip oh what do we got oh nice dusky rock fish on the hooligan oh got another one you go another little dusky.
Oh another dusky dang we're into him now hey jake i got a big fish yeah yeah you're a fighter too there you go jake that's your that's your rockfish that's a beauty well guys this has been fun.
But we're out of time we gotta go back and check those shrimp pots and i gotta get things all cleaned up let's go pull a shrimp pot all right jake here put them in there okay you fill up that you don't need any help all right all right you go get them jake.
Heidi picked up about 25 30 shrimp that'll be very nice for dinner tonight huh we made it all right guys we're back at the house and it's time to cook up some seafood check this out it's so fresh it's still.
