    Default How many shrimp pots in PWS right now?

    I thought you could use 6 pots in the sound right now, but I got something in the mail that said 4 pots. I'm having a hard time finding current, correct info on the F&G website, can anybody point me in the right direction?

    Thanks Steve, we have a permit, but I was thrown off by the deal I got in the mail that said 4 pots. Did you do much shrimping on your bear trip?

    I got 6 gallons of tails minus what we ate. Could have caught more if I had wanted to fish harder.

    Good luck
