After you board the vessel and have your safety briefing, you will get a tag to put your name on buoy for the shrimp pot, that is yours to take with you after the charter for next time 😊 Upon arrival to shrimp grounds we will get gear ready, bait jars, and get ready to set. Gear will be set anywhere from 180 ft up to 430 ft of water. Our gear set up is a little different than most which allows up to fish most tides. We use 40lb Ladner shrimp pots attached to 60 ft of 5/16 floating line that is then attached to a 25lb Kedge anchor with a quick release “D” ring. After the anchor we have approximately 500 ft of neutral buoyancy 5/16 crab line. Using those big anchors allows us to use Larger yellow buoys for easy visibility. After we set gear and mark the pots on the plotter, we will head over to an island and do a little bottom fish jigging. The shrimp gear will stay down for at least 45 min then checked. When we pull up to the gear, each guest will have the opportunity to “THROW THE HOOK” (weather permitting). We will put the line in the 14” crab block and then in then into the line coiler. When the anchor comes up the block will stop, and the anchor will be removed and set aside. After the pot comes up you will release the cinch line and dump the catch onto the sorting table. You will then count out the shrimp into an 80-count limit (10 lbs after June 2nd). You will rebait pots and set back if limits aren’t caught. we will move gear as needed to make sure you go home with your limit! All charter guests are guaranteed dinner.
