    Default PWS trip with the boys

    My buddy and I took our boys out shrimping/fishing this last weekend. Fishing was a little slow for the flat fish, but the shrimping made up for it. We managed a #75, and a couple of #25, several rockfish and a silver by accident. The smiles on their faces were the best things we caught though. And we caught those all day long! The water and weather was great. What a way to spend time with kids! Thought I would post a couple of pics.

    Holy crap dude. Looks like you have mastered the art of shrimping.

    Most Ive ever pulled in was 2 dozen lol
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Default how deep

    how much water were you dropping in?

    the pix hint that you are on one big floatation device...

    Looks like a great time was had by all.

    Default Shrimp

    Bullelkklr, I usually drop in 600-625' and lay uphill. Last pot usually sets about 550+/-. I purchased the ElectroDyne puller from Potbuilder this spring. Makes pulling so much easier than the last few years. The boat is a 05' SeaSport Pilothouse diesel. Not big, but not small either.

    Way to go DAD!. Looks good. Nothing better than being on the water with the boys. The best anti-drug, fish & hunting.

    If you don't mind, how many pots, how long for the soak, and how many pulls did it take for all that shrimp?

    Those smiles on the kids faces say it all! Trips on the Sound never get old to me. Every trip is a new adventure. Well done! Are you sick of shrimp yet? I am only good for a couple of dozen in a sitting now.
    Spending my kids' inheritance with them, one adventure at a time.

    Default Shrimping

    Cruiser, I set 5 pots, all on the same line. If I am out to get shrimp, I pull every 2-4 hours depending on whats going on (good fishing, beachcombing, hiking, having fun).I dont pull in the evening/night I usually hope to get at least 5 gallons on every pull. I have found that it seems that about 70-80% are in the pot within the first three hours anyway. Spoiled One, I just dont get tired of them. Had them for dinner tonight. Skewered, basted with garlic butter,pepper, and Mrs. Dash, served with a side of Filet Mignon. Year after year, still my favorite. When you have shrimp, you have friends!
