Hello everyone. My name is kenaijim and I am an ice fishing fool. I have lived in south central AK for most of my life. This is the first forum I have been involved with. I fish everyday I can,all over over south central. I have been a fishing guide for 21 years on the Kenai river,Big Lake, and the lake Louise drainage.
Welcome to Iceshanty,  you will fit right in with the rest of us fools.  See you found the Alaska section in the community section of the forum.  :tipup: :icefish: :tipup:

Hello fellow hard water anglers my name is Shawn I'm 28 just found out I'm gonna be a father. I'm a minnesota transplant been in ak for 6 years. Used to make a living guiding for pike spearing and cleaning fish, I was a resort brat. Anyway love to fish have gear, auger ice saw sled and the new quick fish 945 hope to get out when I can but I'm a sloper so I spend too much time away from home. Heading to lake Louise for New Years hope to catch my first laker and to meet some of you, best of luck and as uncle red used to say keep yur stick on the ice.

Hello boys and girls,  Im a Travis.  Been busy working the slope last 10 years and havent had much time for hard water fishing.  Now that my little girl is in kindergarten (Im a single dad) Ive been home to put her on the bus.  Been hitting a few of the lakes by my house trying to catch a few 'bows.  Its been pretty fun, but chasing lakers is kind of my dream.  Hopeing to get some time on good laker lakes on good weather weekends that my daughter dont freeze her ice off.  Anyways my main hobbies are hunting, fishing and trapping, which seams to be common enough...  Hope to meet some of you guys and if you recognize me anywhere dont be bashful to say hello.  Good luck with the tight lines!

Hello all,  Here's a little about me.. I have been in Alaska now for 4 years and look forward to many more years here.  I very much enjoy ice fishing and I especially love to take people out and introduce them to ice fishing.  I take my kids out ice fishing as much as my wife will let me, which is almost every weekend.  I also love to hunt, fish, camp and ride ATV's but that gets me through the warm months until I can ice fish again. 
A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work

Howdy guys. Ive been up here with my wife for 1 year now after moving from Utah and I'm loving the fishing, especially the ice fishing.
I live in the valley and last year I think I got out ice fishing around 25 times. Best fish through the ice for me last year was. 21" 4 pound Char. I Figured a few lakes out during the summer and I'm hoping to tear them up through the ice this year. Anyway Im hoping to hit the ice tomorrow for the first time this season!

    Hi Everyone
    I'm new to the group and new to ice fishing. Moved from Oklahoma to Alaska, ice fishing has always been a dream of mine. Went out last week bought some poles, ice shelter, and big buddy heater. I was so pumped up, had a inch of clear ice on a couple lakes, and then it happened 8 inches of snow. Ice started melting, now it's 35 and raining . but lows next week are supposed to be close to 0 , I'm so ready to do this !!!!
Why do things today that can be put off till tomorrow, or next week???? Let's go Ice-fishing!!!!

Only been up here for one winter but I hit the ice fishing pretty hard and caught my fair share of trout, burbot, and char around the Anchorage area last year. Looking to get into some lakers this year. Does anyone know the ice thickness out on Lake Louise? I was hoping to head up there and try my luck this week. Any information or pointers on how to catch them is greatly appreciated!

Just moved up from Montana in November.  Excited to learn how to fish the hard water up here and would love to know the options near Anchorage.

Hey there!  I'm Jonathon/Johnny/John/"ugh, THAT guy again?!", I'm 28 have two young kids (for most trips my 3yo daughter tries to join, her younger brother will likely wait until next season).  I'm in Anchorage, I need to replace my sled, tent, and heater.  I use my Nils 4.5" fitted to my cordless drill for most outings, and plan on buying a 6" auger to go with the same setup. I have a Fishphone underwater camera system that is pretty fantastic, and tons of fun to play with.  Let me know if anybody ever wants to join up and hit the hard deck this winter sometime!

Hey guys, I'm a true Alaskan, born and raised. I've been a fishing fool since the age of 4, when the tug became my drug. I fish as much, and as often as I can, and I would love to share stories, and such with everyone. Let's get these lines wet!
