Decided to run out for one more set last night and use my remaining shrimp bait on the chum bag. Went through 3 packs of herring on dog fish but as I was taking a piss my rod bent over and knew this was not a doggy. The butts are still inside A7! And the shrimping is absolutely insane this year.

Quite the haul.....VERY nice. Looks like there was a nice spawn of shrimp this year. That means WDFW will shut it down on their date and not give us additional quota.

Congrats on a nice day.....

It’s possible, however, there were several days that it was pretty windy out and not many boats went out but that would not make sense to WDFW as that would require more factors into their factoring equation of boats x pots / licenses x days - wind days (.33) = “let’s shut it down, or someone will have to figure out this equation?”

Nice !,, you get that slab on Islander ?
No but I have caught a 65 lber on Islander and got up to the boat and gaffed it and it flipped off gaff back to bottom, knuckle busted pretty good only to reel back up to the boat and have the exact same thing happen! I used a Tanacum. I was taking a piss when it hit and reached over hit the switch and continued pissing lol.

Very Nice!! Helluva day! Next time you see me filling up say howdy. I always keep an eye on the bridge when I pass. If 8-1 stays open, I’m sure we’ll run into each other this summer. Congrats on that harvest.
