    Default Weedend of Shrimping

    Finally made it out onto to water for a weekend of hunting shrimp. Had to hit 4 different spots and only ended up with 1115 but they were mostly good sized. Here is a pic of the largest

    Wow! That's like 92 dozen, I would gladly hang with you. Post up some details, how deep, bait used etc. I know I'm not the only one who would love to hear all about it. Congrats, that's a huge haul and hopefully a lot of fun!

    Stanly, there's a saying here about shrimp spots "most guys would let you sleep with there wife before they gave up their shrimping holes". There is a lot of truth to that. It took me 10 years to figure it out, so all I will say is 450' is what works for me. I also think the shrimp are making a comeback and there are a lot more of them now as opposed to 10 years ago. We are catching a lot more late in the year that have eggs. Used to not be that way. Maybe there is enough food source that they are laying multiple times a year? Don't know.

    We have been getting a few with eggs all season. It seems the further from Whittier the better.

    I was dropping about 450' last weekend too, did better than deeper or shallower. Got about half that number but was the best weekend I've had so far!
