    Default proper shrimping?

    What is a safe or right distance from other buoy lines when out shrimping? When anchoring for halibut the rule of thumb is 1/4 mile away and at least an 1/8 off to one side or the other of the down current side. thanks

    100-200 yards for shrimp pots. in a line.

    hey don't move like flat fish do. your pulling from a local area. and working the shelfs. as long as your not on top of..... is the big deal. figure they are not hanging straight at any rate. with buoy n current all that. so yours will fall further off the side. of the shelf in a different hole.
