Shrimp Opener



Please don't be offended by the bottom picture. They are not flipping you off. That is the BLOODYDECKS Salute. I don't understand it, but, whatever.

The Shrimp Opener was on May the 7. It was calling for a rough ride so I opted to keep the boys home with me. Brian and his crew headed out in the wee hours of the morning.
The top picture is Brian's first halibut that he has ever caught. Came in at 30 lbs.
After a 1.5 hour soak the pulled the shrimp pots.
The tides were supposed to be ripping and we didn't want to risk losing a pot.
The pulled a total of 720 shrimp. That is enough for 9 limits. Sadly there were only 3 of them on the boat so a lot of the shrimp went back to the water.
