Well, it was my first time fishing in PWS, I had a guy bail who was coming along with pots and so I posted a request to borrow some and wouldn't you know it, someone on here came through and loaned me 5 complete setups!! Pretty nice guy!!
Anyway it was my first trip on the new boat and I was a little apprehensive to go out too far. I had studied the chart for weeks and asked you all tons of questions, and was pretty zoned in on one spot in particular. Anyway, as I was approaching Culross I decided not to go any farther and just stick close. THe shrimping was good for my first time. We came up with 600, and didn't even have a puller. THis however was the frst time that I have ever been skunked fishing in the salt. I grew up and spent my whole life on or near the water and have always been pretty savy about rippin lips in the salt. But I can tell know we needed to go farther, and next time I will. The funny part was that at the ramp I talked to fellow with 2 buts, he had been exactly where I was gonna head, so it made me feel a bit better.
PS I am loking for some shrimp gear, preferrably used at this point. I especially a,m looking for the stackable model.
Also I am thinking of setting up a block and tackle 3 to 1 mechanical advantage for hauling pots. Has anyone tried this???
