Just started shrimping last summer. Just had some questions. What is the optimal depth? i know steep and deep, at least now I do. Last summer we got star fish, cod, octopus, and even a small crabs in our pots. We had a total of around 400 or so on an overnight soak. And of course I want more. So was wondering if you went deeper would you get less "junk" in the pot and just more shrimp, i'm thinking around 90 fathoms or so. Bait, no worries there, I like to experiment and try stuff on my own. Then for locations, what would be a big general area to try? Distance is not an issue for the most part. I want to find my own areas but a tiny bit of direction would mean the world. Also was wondering good times to check pots, like being able to bring them up every 3-4 hrs or something. I have always heard that you need at least an overnight soak. Also have people tried using lights in the pots? like the trophy torch or something? also covering your pots with fabric to make it appear to be a cave or protection? I just want more of them lil buggers. lol.
