This is an important part of fall. Shrimp season!!!
It's not as important as gamecock football. But it's freaking awesome!!!
This should get you prepared, but I don't even touch on the laws. Because I don't know every states rules and regulations. I just show you how we get a big pile of that beautiful shrimp.
Step 1: Shrimping Equipment
If you don't have dock access or you can't find that perfect (oyster shell free) point, then you're going to need a boat.
Fishing rods( when the shrimp ain't in)
Step 2: Shrimp Poles
These shrimp poles are pretty cheap and very good for the shrimpin.
5" piece of #4 rebar. Cut one end at an angle.
10' piece of 1/2" EMT conduit
10' piece of electrical 3/4" PVC conduit
I used the bell end dor for the top. Cut a 2" nipple and the use the cap. This gives a nice finished look to the top.
Drill holes at 4' from the end of the EMT and 1' from the end of the PVC. Join them with a
1/4"X1 1/2" bolt and nut. Tape the screw to keep from snagging your net.
Step 3: Baiting Poles
Bait is a mix of cornmeal, clay, and water to a pasty patty. Throw out two per pole
Step 4: Netting the Shrimp
This is where you make your money!! Throw, pull, empty. Repeat.
Step 5: Cooking and Eating
Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.
