Bits & Pieces!

Handy at camp in Alaska!

Some say that Mosquitos are the Alaska state bird because they can get so big!  They can definitely be one of the worst parts of an Alaska fishing trip!  Here is an easy, chear and simple solution to you problem of mosquitos at fishing camp!

Mosquito trap -
No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquitos enters the bottle, thinking they will find food there.

Camp Light!

Here is another great idea for a hunting or fishing camp in Alaska!  This little trick works really well!  You can use it in your shed at home as well or in a meat shed as it does not heat up like a regular light. Just use some water and bleach in a coke bottle!
