To dangerous Shrimping has always been a close contact sport.  Stay safe stay home.

im not optimistic at all.  the other issue is they can't even really push it back a week viably due to the tides.
remember last year they pushed it from first weekend to second weekend due to larger tides.

With the order extended the outlook is not good for this happening.

Not to mention, there's a lot of side chatter about extended the May 4th lock down until the end of May. Unfortunately, WDFW has shown that they are keeping in step with the lock down vs re-evaluating fishing, shellfish separately.

It will happen, but not on the first Saturday, in my opinion.  May 16 would work, otherwise May 30 would be good.  My guess is they will have a series of potential dates and pick one once we know when the stay at home order is lifted.

This had better be the case, there is no biological reason to not allow the same number of days to fish at a later date. The same can be said for the Lingcod season as well since they are done spawning before season starts.

In my mind, shrimp and ling should be easy.  Razors are easy.  Where it gets sticky is where the sport quota gets sucked up by other parties.  Halibut could fall here just due to timing, a June season in the Sound isnít equitable.  A June shrimp or ling season is.  Itís all about intent and honesty.

If sport quota is roughly maintained, itís just a matter of timing.  It likely wonít be perfect, but I think the intention will be obvious.  It isnít an easy task for sure.

No reason shrimp canít go later. Seasons in other MAís last through the summer.  They may not want shrimp and chinook season going at the same time, but I sure hope weíre done with quarantine by mid July!

 Wouldn't be a big deal I'd think in 7 East/south since the beast shrimping is in the summer salmon closure area.

Run it until the quota has been taken, I canít see a reason to do otherwise.
