    Default Whittier Shrimp adventure

    What a weekend!

    I want to thank everyone for all the great advice. The advice by members on launching out of Whitter, to running in PWS and how to shrimp enabled us to have a great trip. My 2 sons and I spent Saturday and Sunday on the water. We set the pots in 6 diffrent places
    and got around 70 shrimp. For our 1st time I was extremly pleased.
    Best shrimp advice was Steep and Deep and don't spend all day looking for the perfect spot, just close your eyes and throw the suckers overboard! We pulled shrimp from every spot we tossed pots. I look forward to a safe and fun summer in PWS.

    Talking Wow

    I am SOO jealous. Only have a small boat ... never put it in at Whittier. Those shrimp look AWESOME. Bet they tasted better.

    Nothing better than a good day out with the family.

    That's great!

    Default making money!!

    Was shrimping out of Whittier with my brother and his boys on his 35' Glacier Craft.

    Having hauled in a full pot, the youngest nephew exclaimed "wow, I bet we made a lot of money on this one!"

    He must have been talking about covering the cost of the bait!!!
