The easiest way to tell how much shrimp that is would be to take it out of the bag, put it into a gallon of water then pull the shrimp out and see how much water is left, I bet you'll be surprised.
    If it helps, we put 36 pounds of shrimp in the freezer after giving a couple stuffed bags to family members.

      Yeah, but do you step on the shrimp in the bucket first to get as many in their as possible, if not then you are over counting. Seriously though, throw the shrimp from one of those bags in a 1 gallon bucket full of water and see how much water is left when you pull them out, if you do this with your whole shrimp you will get a more accurate measurement as well. Weight is a far better way to measure shrimp than by the gallon. I count all the shrimp in each pot every pull and I weigh all the bags I put up. There is no way I could tell you how many gallons of tails I catch, but I can tell you what my average count per pound is on each trip and for the season.

        Weight carries more weight with me than gallons. 36 pounds is a good haul and lots of good eating! I need to go get me some.

            Truth. But at least we got away from the the original post where a grown man (apparently) was bragging about allegedly trying to rock some boats because good Alaskans decided to shoot some guns. Old Dorothy was bragging about karma, whilst acting like a butthurt child. And pretending that he takes shrimping really serious. It was good for a laugh.

              Yep, I was thinking the same thing. What ever happened to going out for fun? If all I did was go out just to shrimp, I would be bored. Do you just stare into the water and wait between soaks? I go for the camping trip, mix in a little fishing, gun shooting might be fun, drink a cocktail at night with a campfire etc.... I dont catch 30+ gallons in my weekend but I have a great time!
