Thread: Lurker Requesting Shimp Pics!

    Default Lurker Requesting Shimp Pics!

    Hello everyone, I have been lurking on here for quite a while. Finally got around to making a login.

    Got the shrimp bug bad! Not able to get out til May. Hoping to see any pics starting this weekend of full (or not ) shrimp pots.

    Potbuilder I was the one that bought the mini pot from you at the Sportsmen's Show for launching off my jet ski.

    Cheers!

    I've got the original hanging in the potbarn. That's Wallbangers rig, he sold the boat this year but i think he's got a bigger/nicer rig in the works, guess he needed a bigger boat to carry those big bastages!!

    I've heard their meat gets pretty tough when they get that big.

    Apparently you haven't heard that long soaks don't work and that shrimp will escape. I guess those 1,000+ shrimp didn't get the memo either!

    My best pull was on a 2 day soak, I baited the pots pretty heavy.

    I have only been avg 53 shrimp on a 24 hour soak with 3 pots. The 1010 pull is impressive.

    I "usually" get an average of 120 shrimp in 3 pots on a 6 hour soak. But I have thrown out all of the times when I first started that yielded few to zero shrimp (most of those out of Valdez).

    So if I were to adjust for time and pot numbers I would be at:

    3 * 2.66
    +
    6*8

    so
    120*2.66= 319.2*8=2552.6 shrimp for a 8 pot 48 hour soak LOL


    And sore arms from all of that pullin by hand.....


    I wish!

    If you can count the shrimp, it's not a good soak. In a good location you'll get at least a gallon of whole shrimp per pot in a 9-12 hour soak.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    We count shrimp in every pot, and log it in the log book. We also log in the date and time, coordinates, soak time, depth, type of bait and any other pertinent information. We also log in all of our fishing spots, and fish caught, the same way. That way my Kids and Grandkids will have a starting point forever, even if the plotter fries. Plus it's just plain fun to insist that the kids count every shrimp in every pot.....it's there job !!!.........and they love it !!!!!!

    Here's a couple more for the OP.................

    Then I sure don't have a good location! I have to take what I can get since I don't have a lot of time to spare in PWS to search one out. More time and more traveling looking for a spot means more fuel $$ and momma gets unhappy and takes away my boat play time (Well, I have to have the boat back in Homer by mid/late May...)
