SUBJECT: out-of-state shrimper question

Submitted by John (63.171.192.6) from VIRGINIA on

Hey all!


You guys have a great board.


I plan to travel south next season to shrimp and have found different states have laws opposed to out-of-staters like one state has a baiting license priced at $25.00 and $500.00 for non-residence.


I understand not wanting outsiders removing state resources BUT would appreciate some help.


Which eact coast state has the best laws and would be the best place for a beginner with a cast net?


Can a beginner do ok with just a cast net WITHOUT
using bait?


I will be using a small camping trailer and am flexable as to locations.


Thanks....


John

    John, South Carolina requires a Permit to bait shrimp and a license to fish in saltwater but the strange thing is no license or permit is required to cast net shrimp (not over bait) no matter if you are a resident or not. Cast netting with out bait is what we call Deep Hole Shrimping. The best time is at low tide. Cast into the deepest hole you can find in a creek. You need to tape your net in order to hold it open. The limit is 48 qts.

    John , I have shrimped the low country on and off for more than 20 years . I don't bait and nearly always find the best catch is on an incoming tide and usually the ones that come in during the dark hours of the morning . outgoing seem to be only slightly less productive .the really heavy hauls seem to come just asthe tides begin their turns though . this pertains to wading mostly as I haven't shrimped from boats ve ry often . good luck and great catch T P.S. though I have no personal exp. with it I know several people who swear by poking holes in a can of alpo , tying a line through it and dragging it behind them


  3. Tim/GA (12.129.83.110) from GEORGIA says Georgia shrimping
    First question, will you have a boat? If not I would suggest looking into using a beach/shrimp seine and seining in Georgia. The seine will let you get the jumbo shrimp in the fall and some browns in the summer. Also, we catch a lot of mullet and this past year people were catching limits of trout with the seine in the summer. The reason to seine in GA is that you can use up to a 100ft seine (you can go larger but have to use much larger mesh and limited tofront side beaches) while in SC the max size is 40ft. Even if you have a boat, a seine can be the way to go at times. It is work but a good way to do it. Even if seining, have a castnet with you and you can keep the castnet limit rather than just the seine limit. If you are looking to castnet in GA, the fall can still mean very good catches in shallow water but you need to learn where to find them shallow. I like the large mudflats and river edges a bit inside the sound for the real jumbo (14 to 20 count) shrimp.

    As an aside, I have not been around on the boards for awhile but hope to be more often. For those that remember me, I am very much into GA shrimping.


  4. Alan (68.40.60.209) from NORTH CAROLINA says shrimping
    I'm going to be around Elizabeth City, NC, for a few days around 4/11/04 and would like to see some real-life shrimping and possibly shrimp myself with a net. Does any shrimping go on in April in North Carolina? If so, what towns would anyone suggest to see some shrimping? Any part of the shrimping process & industry would be of interest to me. THANKS for any info!!


  5. benton (205.188.116.133) from NORTH CAROLINA says shrimp laws
    I would like to know when shrimp season opens?


  6. Kristy (68.61.86.141) from MICHIGAN says Shrimping in Charleston, S. C.
    We are visiting friends who just moved to Columbia,S.C. and I thought it would be a neat experience to go on a shrimping boat and see how shrimping is done. Our friends have 3 kids, grades 7,8 and 10. Is there a good company to get hooked up with and is there shrimping going on this time of the year in Charleston or some city nearby Columbia? Thanks for your help.


  7. lunkerbrother (207.69.138.140) from NORTH CAROLINA says shrimp
    Pulled my net yesterday morning in the sound and got a good mess of shrimp for dinner along with a bunch of good crabs and one sturgeon...got the fellow back unharmed. Finally got me some shrimps...hard to keep the net untangled.


  8. nino (66.153.198.12) from SOUTH CAROLINA says o-cost ......throw netting
    john regardles of where you chose to hang your hat on a sc visit.........when water temps get below 55 .......the shrimp move out to deep water in late fall /begining of nov here ......check out salt marshes......at falling tide. you can judge when/where by receeding grass line on shores....as it falls shrimp come out from hiding and go deep for protection. a 8 ft throw net is appropriate 6ft to learn with. a john -boat would be ideal but it can be done from shore with ease . just watch snags !!!! backwater creeks are your best bet as floor is generally muddy rather than oysterbeds !!!!!! hope you have fun!!!!! g/l
