  • 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?

      DON'T FORGET YOU NEED A PERMIT!!!!! and it has the details on it.



      Five pots per vessel.


      5 AAC 77.553. Personal use shrimp fishery

      (a) In the personal use taking of shrimp,

      (1) shrimp may only be taken from April 15 through September 15;

      (2) repealed 7/1/2006;

      (3) no more than five pots per person, with no more than five pots per vessel may be used;

      (4) shrimp may be taken only under a permit issued by the department as specified in 5 AAC 77.015.

        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

              My hunting partner with the boat got it, I'll see if he still has it.
