Thread: Shrimpi regulation question

  1. #1

    Default Shrimpi regulation question

    1. What is the date it closes in PWS
    2. Is it still a maximum of five pots? (I heard a rumor recently that it was different).

    Thanks if you can.

    8 pot limit and my permit says 15 Apr to 15 Sep 2010. So you can shrimp until 15 Sep 2010.

    Make sure that you correctly label your bouy. The troopers do check!! Its a $115 if ya don't!! Ask me how I know. And they will impound your pots. you can get them back... but you have to contact them...hehehe

    How do you "correctly" label your bouy? I have my name, phone number and address on them.

    First initial and last name, address and vessel number or name if a named vessel. It is outlined on the back of the PERMIT that is also required.

    Good luck

    I decorated my bouy with my name and address. i guess late is better than never
    They only pulled one string and gave me till noon tomorrow to properly label the other one.
    Yes I told on myself!! He did say he had never seen that many shrimp in 4 pots
    before... also told me; "we had to release them" ?????

    Thanks for the info. I guess I could have just read my permit.
    I also have on the pots: "Do not steal these pots or I will sink your boat".
    I wouldn't ever really, but after reading all the posts on this form about people stealing I thought it couldn't hurt.
