I will be coming up there in two weeks for a few days of fishing, I am going with a guy I work with who is local to the area. We are going to be fishing south of Anchorage, he isn't sure yet where as he is waiting for the fishing reports. I don't want to smoke the salmon and would like to bring it back fresh, but I'm not sure its feasible so I have some questions. 1. Can I bring a cooler of fish back on the plane with me, likely would be checked? Is dry ice allowed on a plane in checked luggage? 2. Anyone try to ship it back? I know transportation costs are outrageous but I'm happy to do my legwork of creating my own cold storage box. Foam cut to fit box, filets wrapped in garbage bags, dry ice placed around frozen filets. Any input or comments would be greatly appreciated.
