Any idea on shrimp cost?

Working out the details still, I just arranged to ship them south on a barge line to keep the price as low as possible.  Details to follow on a new Group Buy Thread soon!

Here's a great video of the West Crawfish chum smash of 2018.  A few of those seiner boats grossed over $100k that day.

I heard that it set the one day record commercial chum catch of over 1 million fish. Indications are that next year could be bigger.

3....2....1....go!
That looks like a beautiful place to fish!
The anticipation would be killing me to be anchored up or idling waiting for the gun to go off!
Thanks for sharing!

120,000 to 125,000 lbs depending on price. In Prince William Sound we got $.80 to .85 a lb for a good part of last year. SE usually gets a little more as they are closer to markets and have better shipping options.

How long did the season last? Hours? Days?  How much have you guys been getting for reds the last few years?  My brother set nets Ugashik for Reds.

Hey fellas. Been longlining P-cod for the past few weeks, really spotty cell coverage. 

Couldn't put the pieces together for a November spot prawn buy.  I have some product left though, and will be back down and selling fish (possibly off my boat in Fisherman's Terminal for a few days) sometime in March.  As soon as I get an idea of when I'll be heading back, I'll post up and put the bug in everybody's ear and see if we can do a group buy on the prawns, coho filets and yelloweye - as long as I can get it down in time.

Thanks!
