I have been online for the last 2 hours trying to find out the season,location that I can catch them from shore,and size limits,etc. I have found mostly old information and 1000000000 hits for Deadliest Catch.
We would also like to do some shrimping. Can anyone help me with some good information that isn't 3yrs old?

I was thinking Homer but I couldn't find any information about the season,regs,etc. I tried the ADFG site and nothing. We would like to know the best time to go so that we can plan ahead.

Alaska fish and game site for the seasons.

Unless you have a boat for going out in the water, you will be limited to hanging a pot off the dock in a Coastal town.

If you have a boat, look on the charts for "holes" where the "dead" stuff will lay underwater, that is where they hide.

I am more than happy to hang a pot off a dock. I did go to the fish and game site and I must have searched wrong or something because the info. I found was from 2002-2004 and then there was a ton of recipes.
We are flexable with WHERE we go. We just need to know WHEN to go. I would love to have a boat but that isn't in the budget this year.

well actually some of the guys who do the charters have their own pots and when you're done king/halibut fishing you pull up the pots and head back to the slip

Oh the hubby and guy members of my family would love that for sure,to be able to fish and crab. What a wonderful thing. Now I'm on a mission to find a charter that won't break our bank.
