Buy an inexpensive ice chest while you are there. Use pack gel ice packs. Carry it back as checked luggage.

I used a Norchill soft side to carry my expensive meat products to Exuma. Froze everting solid and packed it. Carried it on. No issues at all. Was thinking of doing the same 3X. One for me and each kid.

Babkin Charters (Whittier). I sailed on the Babkin with Brad and Kjersti for a three week cruise. Highly recommended.

Check carefully for closures last season there were widespread Chinook Salmon restrictions in some places no idea about next year.

Halibut possession & size limits have also been drastically reduced.

I've been fishing Alaska for the last 20 years. Best way to to get fish home is with a "fish box." Both Safeway or Walmart have 30 and 50 pound boxes. Coolers are usually too heavy and can't carry much fish weight or don't always meet airline measurement standards. Fish boxes are light, tight and meet airline requirements. I've used them in Seward, Homer, Kodiak, Sitka, Fairbanks, and Northway. Never had a problem.

Also, the Anchorage Airport has freezer storage available at the Airport in the South Terminal on Level 1, next to Bag Claim No. 4 on the lower level you can use for a fee if your hotel does not allow you to use theirs. (Some do, some don't) I think it's like $12-$15 per box depending on the size.

Another tip IF you have access to a vacuum sealer and freezer. Save your 12 pack beer boxes, process your fish and put the sealed bags into the 12 pack boxes and then put them into the freezer. You'll find 3 FULL 12 pack boxes will fit nicely into a 50 pound fish box and you'll be close to the 50 pound airline limit per bag. Also, the box of frozen fillets stays colder much longer this way. Double check your beer box sizes to see how they fit best. I have thrown in the sealed fillets all loose and that works just fine too.

Good luck! Enjoy your trip!
