4 Days Tenting, Fishing & Eating What We Ranking in Alaska
Luke here at the outdoor Boys YouTube channel we're spending the next four days fishing for Halloween seeing beautiful scenery I think we'll stop guys salmon eating good food I'm a camping it's gonna be a great adventure come along for the ride all right guys you ready to go.
we're here in Whittier Alaska and we're about to get on a ferry to go to Valdez well it's about a six hour ferry ride to get to the city of Valdez and we're gonna sail through Prince William's sound which is in my opinion one of the.
Most beautiful places in all of Alaska we're gonna see lots of glaciers and there's a really good chance of seeing whales hey Jacob can you see that Glacier right behind you there's another Glacier out there oh there's another Glacier out there there's a pot of killer whales that just swam in front of the boat.
S oh we got another whale all right everybody Welcome to Valdez Valdez holds the record in Alaska for the most snow in a year at 96 feet and the most snow in the day 18 feet okay it's got a nice little kitchen in here I.
Wonder if the TV has any problem with overheating look at that that's pretty oh check it out they've got the the ski handrail here oh yeah got us some bunk beds up here yeah oh mind the beam here you guys gonna pick your bedroom well you couldn't tell by looking out the.
Window but it's almost 10 o'clock we've got to get our kids to bed I'm gonna put the camera down I'm gonna see you guys in the morning Tommy wake up bud hey Jacob catchy it's me Tommy and Jake are here at the.
Small boat harbor in Valdez and we are gonna go fishing all right guys here's our boat tell them why don't you go hop down in there and I'll hand you stuff okay everyone to take and see almost every major port in Alaska has a boat rental place and as long as you're taking the Coast Guard safety class or have some.
Boating experience you can rent your own boat and go out fishing and it's a fraction of the cost of doing a charter boat and frankly I think it's a little more fun foreign first thing we're going to do is drop some shrimp pots and let those soak all day long when we come back we'll get.
Some shrimp we've only been out of the harbor three minutes I already see a whale right there is that cool Tommy do you see him yes let's get the shrimp pots ready yeah shrimp pellets we're at a little over 300 feet deep we're gonna right.
Dude all right we got our shrimp pots out time to go fishing all right we got about an hour drive we're gonna go out far out into the ocean well guys check this out sea otters minutes and we've already seen a dozen otters they're so fluffy.
Check it out that's blight Reef it's where the Exxon Valdez oil tanker ran aground and caused the oil spill back when I was in school got a jig on this we're in a big wide flat area with about 70 feet of water and we're gonna try to see if we can't catch a halibut the current's moving really gently and there's almost no wind.
So we're gonna drop down and just kind of drift along until we get into a pocket of halibut look at this oh I got a I had a big head oh it came up and hit it oh oh it just popped off oh let's see what we got oh I see colors oh get him on there I think that's a jig oh there we go.
There we go it's a hell of it it's a bun it's pretty small should we keep him yeah it's an embarrassingly small halibut but I think we should keep one there we go yay small he snagged there you go there you go first hell of it.
Yeah oh wow there we go oh Jake you got one right here here watch this you want to keep him let's hit him back oh he got away that's okay we're gonna get another one there's so many oh yeah look look look.

I was busy dealing with Tommy's fish and Jake put the Allure back all by himself Jake didn't hooked it that's a big one Jake that's not a bad one Jake you wanna you wanna keep fishing or you want to be done I'm done here you go.
You want to keep him yes okay no here come here oh there he goes he's off I'll tell you what guys those weren't huge but that was loads of fun we're gonna catch about 12 halibut let most of them go but we still got a couple hours.
Let's go try for some rockfish look there's some Rockfish right there you can see the signals yeah that's all those little lines of Rockfish they're right on the edge got one of my signature series rods here I'm gonna try that yeah there's something on yeah I gotta deal with my oh that's.

With it now up and over yeah this is one of those rivers that just looks mean doesn't it I was wondering where the nuts were pull them a quick hand over hand what that does is that collapses this net and clapses the fish in the net.
Hey go ahead and get them in all right and the fish gets in there you'll feel it wiggling around wow that was fast it's a king yeah it's a king sound we're gonna set that one back he's a little small yet hey Mega grab my guys we've only been.
Fishing 30 seconds and Becca already caught a king salmon now we're allowed to keep 70 red salmon but only one king salmon so that was a small one so we put them back yeah oh David.
Salmon let's see red salmon yeah look at that Nathan you got the first Keever high five the sockeye salmon or a red salmon this is the best eating salmon so dip netting is pretty simple but it's a lot of work you go Upstream you put your Nets in and you drag them Downstream to try to snare the salmon as.
They swim up hey can you hold on to that yeah so right now we're just keep going Upstream dragging our Nets Downstream then repeating the cycle over and over again.
It's a fish is it a soccer yeah that's a Sockeye look at that that's two well you catch them dip netting you gotta clip the tail see how pale he is he'll start to turn silver as he dies now the reason why we're dead for.
Sockeyes is that they won't bite a hook you can only catch a Sockeye by snagging them flossing them or netting them yeah boy there we go that's three there you go here no don't don't use Mama's coat don't do.
Mom's toes there you go nice pretty oh pretty soccer number four you're going on the river you're just kind of feeling the bottom and then all of a sudden the net will start shaking You Pull It in you got a fish miles from the ocean and there is a seal over there.
My wish came true that's not too bad high five yeah look at that harder number six number six number six Mega Nathan you got one yes the fishy Dance Team box one team dead zero oh.
Becca that's a king salmon that's a big one oh look at that biggest fish of the trip that is n't so let them sash it James it's like a schoolyard for all here all right oh.
You got a king what a king now you can see why we let the other one go when they're all silver the way you tell is the spot's on the tail yeah sockeyes don't have the spots on the tail like that he and Mommy's kicking our butts you gotta do something about this we got an upper game you know I think it was the.
