Well my misfortune on shrimping this season is deep thus far. With the awesome weather we had foretasted I decided to get the family out on the sound over fathers day weekend. I pulled out all my shrimping gear that I have not used in two years. Got it all prepped and ready for service.
I had 3 of Steves collapsible pots on a string of rope. Those pots were my prize!
I had 50' shot of line between each pot. A string of 600'+ rope to my buoy's. I set on a 400' shelf.
One pot maybe 2 were weighted down.
I am not sure what happened. I set them in the early morning and returned the evening to not see them anywhere. My buoys are pretty unique. This is what I am banking on here.
Maybe just maybe one of you guys might spot them while running around out there.
I have 2 buoy's. One large (A6?) buoy and a A4. The large one is very large and painted florescent green with all my info on it. My name, phone number, and Reg # AA9880AK. Both buoy's are marked. The other one is the bright yellow/ green color that steve sells from time to time.
I originally set them around Pigot Pt. I am more than confident they are not near there anymore. Hopefully I messed up and they drifted off that shelf and are floating around somewhere. That or on a beach in the sound somewhere. I searched for 3 hours around but with no luck. I am offering a good reward to anyone who can return my gear.
If my gear does not return luckily some how I think I am gonna be forced to hang up my shrimping gear. It is just to expensive to reinvest into it.
If any of you gentlemen could please keep an eye out for my gear I would appreciate it and willing to pay ya to bring my gear home.
