Just got back from a 3 day cruise in beautiful Prince William Sound and got 250+ giant striper & spot shrimp in 3 12hr. sets. Not my record, but decent. Delicious!! Very sweet. Our crew mates had never tasted Alaska shrimp and thought they were more like lobster.

There is nothing quite like the summers up there. I've subsistance fished in the Copper River. Eaten smoked salmon all winter (yup tuff to light)...Chased Bullwinkle and Yogi captured by shooting with 35mm.

Always said, in the 6 years I spent up there, "summers always made up for the winters". The last winter I spent in the interior it would have taken 2 summers to thaw out.

I often think about the big outdoor feasts in Fairbanks with the fresh fish grilled to prefection and served up as much as you can eat...

ENJOY IT! Harvey

Wildman, So how do you get shrimp, dipnets or seines? My only knowledge of shrimping is what I've learned from Forrest Gump.

Sounds like it was a great weekend.
Dave

Great timing Mike! I'm sitting down here in 102 degrees struggling to keep the trees watered.

But... We will talk again in about 6 months when you are trying to figure out which one of those white lumps is your airplane.

Mark, I hope you have deep watering tubes on those trees, otherwise you'll be hauling more water than those fire fighters just too keep up with the evapouration.

They tell me that one gallon below ground is the same as 22 gallons on the surface, I'm not sure it's that much better, but it sure takes a LOT less water.

Best of luck.

I have certainly found that spraying it around with standard sprinkler heads is a waste of time and water. Most of it never even hits the ground.

I have been using my water tanks on wagons. My 225 gallon tank with a length of 5/8's hose and a small sprinkler head takes about 2 hours to drain by gravity. It will put all the water into an 18-24 inch circle.

The goal has been to keep the well pump from cycling on and off all day. I fill the tanks with 400 gallons with a straight shot out of the well and put them where I need them.

But, it is hard to keep up.... especially in this heat.. apples are kind of small and the cottonwoods are looking stressed. I am going to try to rig up a drip system today using the hundreds of feet of old garden hose that came with the property. More work for the pump... but less for me.

Instead of a drip system, which still puts the water on the surface where most of it will evapourate unless it is buried under several inches of mulch, try putting tubes in the ground near the tree.

If you use 1/4" steel pipe all you need for a tip is a bolt with the head ground to a point. Drill the bottom 3" full of small holes and shove a piece of garden hose with a male tip on it over the top of the pipe as a pigtail to connect it to the supply line. If you're just using gravity you might just connect the lin to the tank and leave it. It will take a lot longer but it will put the water where the tree needs it, in it's roots.

Don't put the water more than a foot deep, 6" is best.

Best of luck.

Dave..we use round pots made of coated steel mesh. We put the cheapest, smellyest cat food in perforated jars inside. Then we look for 400-500' of water depth in a glacier fed bay and drop them for one tide cycle (12hrs). Shrimp like the glacier silt and they run deep.

4 pots on one 700' line clipped on at 30' intervals. We use a gas powered pot puller. Wrap the line around the capstan and pull them in about 5 minutes. Empty, rebait and drop again. My record for one pull was around 220 shrimp.

I'll post a pic of the "Andrea" (32' Willard)
