  • Stupid Shrimp Question

    How many shrimp are you guys counting as a gallon? I recall it being on the old permits but its not on the new one. I was thinking 20 but fortunate for me my mind was the first thing to go . Nothing online about it that I could find other than a guy in WA saying 40 to a gallon. Their spots must be smaller than ours. Cant wait to get back out there this weekend.

    Last season's permit said 80 - but talked with guy when I picked up my permit and he said they were back to measuring them. He told me people were actually writing in the NUMBER of shrimp they caught, not as gallons of shrimp. So people were reporting, say, 100 on their permit!

    Basically a gallon ziplock is a gallon I got a cat litter bucket I use for washdown and such, and I marked 1, 2 and 3 gallon lines after dumping a ziplock full into it.

      We generally just use a five gallon bucket and estimate.

        That is my method as well.

          Same as Brian but I have a 2 gallon bucket and a 5. The count is "gallons of whole shrimp" not tails.

            80 shrimp per gallon seems a bit high to me for whole shrimp. Thanks guys for the tip on the bucket, I usually just open the transom fishbox and throw them in there on ice so I was hoping to just count and avoid the bucket method. Guess I will just take a bucket, count while I fill it and use that number as a baseline. Thanks guys.

                    I use a 3 gallon bucket and estimate on whole shrimp. I like the bucket because you can fill it with water and let the shrimp soak and clean themselves out for a bit before heading them; then put in bags and on ice.

                      I use a wide mouth maynaise bucket to put them in after they are headed and then we pack that in ice or snow.

                      I set pots in Seward for 3 days over mem wknd - zippo, zilcho for shrimp.

                        I tried Seward last year, it was my last time taking my pots to seward. Well, unless I can start keeping the crabs I caught.
