    Default More Shrimping Pics

    I have never posted a picture on the site, so I am not sure if the pic will be included. hahaha
    This is a pull I made yesterday after a 36 hour soak.
    Friskies Giblets and Gravy, Herring chunks and Red Salmon scraps.
    I have to let them soak longer than I would like, but I have a job and family. hehehehe

    Thanks for the picture. Looks like a good haul which should provide some good eating over the winter. (I wouldn't mind the coordinates also!)

    Default Wow, needed more space than a cooler..

    I tried it once with a couple fiends this summer. We could fit all ours in a small zip-log bag whith plenty of room to spare.

    But what do you expect from a guy who calls himself "Valley Trash"

    Maybe if I would stop eating at my computer, my keyboard wouldn't be full of crumbs and it wouldn't keep missing letters.

    Nice haul LipSnatcher! Looks like you are taking the recreational shrimping pretty seriously. I love me some shrimp and really need to get setup for it this winter so I can give it a go next summer!

    Thanks for the compliments. I am really fortunate shrimping. For me it is location. I have a trench I fish in, it is about 200yds wide and a quarter mile long. I pulled them on the way out friday and got 1 1/2 gallons of tails. Missed the hole!! We took my pots out>>>> with us. First drop sucked, the second location was awesome. 8 hrs. gave us another 1 1/2 after dinner.
    I did take shrimping serious!!
    When I started, nobody would tell me diddle. All I wanted to know was food?? Bottom terrain to look for??? How deep??? All I got from anyone was; "They're on the bottom"...
    One day, I hit a small stick and my pots were in the way of the tools, I happen to be in 95 phantoms, so I cleared the deck. 4 hrs later I had 5 gallons of shrimp. I nearly crapped my pants.
    Now the ones that wouldn't help me, want to know where?? how?? All I know is, "they're on the bottom" hahahaha
    I have a really cool idea for different pots next year.
    What a beautiful weekend!!
    AKBassking,
    hehehe, maybe?? I do have a big mouth, but I do try to stay off when I am in the area. Been lucky this yr. no missing pots, and they have been where I left them.

    Luke, we didn't get any Black Sable fish. We caught 3 of the grey cod 2 of the 3 were HUGE. 30 lbs
    We also got an arrowhead flounder. I didn't know they grew that big. We released it. 40 lbs or so.
    We ended up with our 2 day limit on 'but and rockfish.
    I am slammed with work, so I won't be out again until after this weekend.
