    Default Horny Shrimp

    Yesterday on one of my pulls I got this little shrimp with spikes on his back. What is it? It is a mean looking little dude. I will eat him tonight.

    I will try to get a pic of this guy put on here....

    Default probably a spiny shrimp.

    there are a few members of the genus Lebbeus up here.
    The "king" shrimp or spiny lebbeid is fairly common.
    does it look like this?

    Default that is it

    That is it, but mine was a much darker color. Not as sweet as the others but still tasted like chicken, er uh, shrimp.

    Also had a pretty good sized snow crab ride a pot up. I let him go back, but then I almost cried :-)
