    I'm hoping it's area 2 personally, but either way if fuel prices stay the way they are, I'll be on the water a WHOLE lot more this year! I've got a couple of the cabin rentals as usual, but I plan on doing some more exploration for better shrimping in new areas.

    Yea, 1 is the northern area (Unakwik), 2 is more western side (Port Nellie) and 3 is the far south area.

    Since they were in Area 3 last year, they are in Area 1 this year.

    Do they only fish certain days of the week or is it open for them every day until they reach their quota?

    It usually starts with a short 3-4 day season. In years past that has been followed by another short season, then a longer one stretching a week or two, and then if quota remains they open it for the rest of the summer. It totally depends on effort and the catch rate.
