We had a great day on the water, but we had to work hard for the shrimp.

Saw lots of porpoises, a few sharks, and lots of bait running around.

I only made one cast wih the rod, and we were robbed (probably by crabs).

We threw two crab pots, but got 2 in one pot, and zero in the other.

Bycatch was low, which was nice. Tablefare bycatch is great -- the rest is a hinderance. :supergrin:

I understand you use poles to mark your bait balls. Do you put out a new bait ball after every throw?

What's a bait ball?

I understand you use poles to mark your bait balls. Do you put out a new bait ball after every throw?

They're formed into patty shapes. Just about the size of your average burger you'd make to put on the grill. They'll last for hours if they're not being hammered by tides, crabs, fish, porpoises, etc. If a pole "turns off" then the bait is probably gone. We'll rebait it.

We ran one set for about 3 hours. Near the end, we ended up picking up two balls; one was about 1/2 gone, the other 3/4 gone.

What's a bait ball?

Mix fish meal, clay, and maybe some menhaden oil with water. It's a precise mixture to get it "right".

Or, do it the easy way: http://www.baitbinder.com/ :embarassed:

I have only caught shrimp at night. A light mounted in the boat on a pole maybe 8-10' high and then cast net or dip net the shrimp attracted to the light. It is amazing to see them little glowing eyes surround your boat. No bait needed. This was in the Daytona area by the way.

Okay, that settles it - fresh shrimp tonight!

I am a sucker for good, large, fresh caught shrimp. Fry them, grill them or eat them raw - they're an addiction!

Fill us dumb northerners who only catch these guys' MUCH larger cousins - what the bleep did you just say?

And you are catching shrimp like creatures on a rod and reel??? Inquiring minds wanna know, yo.

EDIT

After the 4th read, I know what you mean. Just reading it without understanding led to more lack-of-understanding. Your non-intented target was low, but non-intended-target specimens which you eat are always nice, but the ones that you can't eat are a PITA. Got it.

But still - how are you catching these things?

LOL, Dennis, that was funny! :rofl:

I kinda explained it a bit above, but the jist of it is that you put out 10 poles that are licensed.

You drop bait by the poles.

You drink beer while letting the poles sit.

You drive up near each pole, throw a cast net, pull it in, and see whatcha got!

YouTube has a few decent videos out there.

Actually -- just gotcha one: Shrimp Baiting-Opening Day - YouTube . I've fished that location plenty of times. Never shrimped that bay, but plan to later this season.

When we drive nearly 2.5-3 hours EACH WAY, we can't be that selective, ya know? :dunno:

Sometimes it's best to consult an expert.

Yeah... This past time I didn't wear gloves, and it looks like I got a fight with a pin cushion.

OK. When you say "pole," I think "fishing pole." Now I get it. Cool!

Glad I could finally make it "click" for ya.

If you ever get the chance to do it, JUMP ON IT! :supergrin:
