Title: Shrimping
Post by: Encore 280 on May 08, 2019, 01:35:40 PM
I noticed in the regs the times for the openings are listed as 9am "through" 1pm. "Through" meaning how far "through" 1pm, until 2pm or what? :dunno:

It means 1:00pm on the dot fishing is over, your last pot needs to be out of the water and done. Depending where you are fishing there will likely be WDFW enforcement looking for this.

I had to go look myself.  This State consistently makes laws that are ambiguous creating more violations.  Iím sure they mean ďuntilĒ 1pm, but why donít they have a proofreader?  :bash:

Every time I see a "shrimping" thread come up, makes me think of this


Silliness aside, good to luck to all who head out a shrimping this year  ;).  That's one thing I've never done.

So you are the one guy who doesnít go out?

Itís a crazy zoo.  Tide is perfect, weather forecast is insane this year.  Best outlook I have seen in the 20 or so years I have done it.

Depending on boat size be prepared to spend around $380+ per month. Sweet service though.

4 limits in two pots. We earned it though, went to area 7. Weather started beautiful. Fog rolled in, brought nasty fog wind, 50 yd visibility and a nasty chop on top. It was a good thing we got out of there fast.
