  • WTH is this? Creature from the deep (Shrimping)

    OK, so what the hell is this? After a couple of days acting like 2 monkey's trying to EFF a watermelon (anyone an expert at depth finder transducer installation?!?!?! PM me please!), on one of our pulls we found 4 of these in the pot (and only one shrimp)

    Those claws were the hardest I ever had to clean. And terribly unsatisfying as far as hunger goes, after working so hard for so little Seriously, what the hell is it? Shrimp legs, TINY lobster/shrimp tail and those funky long spindly claws?!?

    Otherwise had fun - wish shrimping was more productive, but fun nonetheless.

          I have no clue what it is, but it looks freaking cool
          I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

            Galatheid crab, also called a pinchbug or "squat lobster". Tails are tasty if you get enough big ones.

            When I was still shrimping commercially, we would occasionally find pockets of those and the pots would come up red...pain in the butt to get out of the gear.

                That is what happens when your daddy is an old crab and your mama is a shrimp.

                      That there is a professional shrimp arm wrestler. Or with that reach it could be a boxer.

                          Don't worry hd, it's early in year. Well get a couple more. Should be a sticky

                          This is a squat lobster (with pics)
                          This is a wolf eel
                          This is a wolf fish
                          I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

                            awesome idea. Then I could have found it without posting, since searching did nothing for me as I didn't know what the hell to search for.
