    Anyone care to expound on their LARGEST shrimp trap catches? How many pounds?

    Default Catches

    Catches seem to vary. Checking everyother day, 125-200 is about average. The best I have seen when pulling pots with a friend, is six gallons for five traps.

    I am a rookie, first summer shrimping. Let me tell you what, it is about location location location and how the shrimp move I guess. My biggest pull was 110 shrimp this summer. I usually drop in about 250 - 450 feet of water. Not very great in respect to what some people on this forum are doing. If anyone feels the need to let me in on their secret spots please do!

    Sometimes not so great...



    Sometimes it's better...



    Sometimes it really works out...





    Okay, the last two are from commercial shrimping.
