Ran 5 pots in eastern PWS maybe 20 days in August. Weird, not a single louse came in with the pots, and zero in the bait containers, what's up with that? Not that I minded, those that think the lice chumming the bait attracts more shrimp aside, I hate the stinking little buggers!
Shrimping was good for August where we do it. Eggs weren't as scarce as last year, maybe 10% had eggs. I think they are just running late. Water temps are now about 10 degrees warmer that maybe 6-8 years ago, 61-62 degrees. NOPE, I wasn't one of the people setting pots in Valdez Narrows right across the traffic lane.
