    Default Custom sized shrimp pots

    I built a couple of custom sized folding pots for a customer from Seattle. He stores them in a box so he wanted them to be 20x24 instead of my usual 24x24 to fit in the box. He had me build some last year but lost one so he asked me to build more. He sent me these pictures, guess they fished ok for him !

    you wouldn't like the daily 80 shrimp per person limits and short openings.

    You sure are right about that Potbuilder! I also agree with what I believe you've said, that we may need to think about hemming ourselves in a little bit here. It probably doesn't make sense to fish shrimp when they are heavily egging for instance which seems to be April as well as September for sure. This year the April shrimp had all kicked off their eggs as far as I could tell, probably because the water was warmer, but I think some years there are a lot with eggs in April. Still figuring my own opinions on these things and I'll echo the shorter season idea)....I do think the fact that the eggs got mostly released before shrimping started this year could be a good thing for future years but we kind of got lucky on that is all it was.

    I'll add that so far, at least for me, shrimp catches per pot have been good both for commercial and sport. Too be totally honest they weren't good commercial until I got zeroed in and by then the season was pretty much over but still the shrimp were definitely there . Sport wise I've been shrimping some very popular spots and doing just fine. Also in April there were some with eggs and those few that had them....the eggs were very developed. Just my observations this far and we will see how the year progresses...
