    I don't understand how people say the only allergy they have is shrimp (have a couple friends like this). The say the same....scratchy throat. Maybe you guys are eating the shells? lol. Either way, shrimp are delicious, so man up, and chow down.

    They aren't the only allergy I have lmao. Also allergic to cats, dogs, pollen, blood worms (yes!) and mold (which means I am SCREWED no matter what season it is!) They make my mouth and lips pretty itchy (and so does lobster even more so, but oddly enough crayfish and crab do not!) but it's not a big deal, just an annoyance, so I take Benadryl first, pig out, then go to sleep lol.

    Blood worms on the other hand almost killed me when I inhaled a little dust when I was crushing them for my plants. Since then I keep an EpiPen in the house.

    The shrimp in the cups are actually just the heads. You have to pinch the heads off before storing them in the freezer or peeling and cooking them. Its the same as lobster, just a lot more heads to deal with.
    That is so gross....


    You must have two million dollars in shrimp there. That would cost a freakin' fortune to buy.

    I guess that would be the reason as to why you shot down my idea to use blood worms instead of fertalizer.... haha!

    I never tried toasted shrimp, sounds good though. Tell JR to turn on the toaster and we'll see how good they are.

    You've got to count your catch, how else are you going to beat your high score?

    I've never seen eggs on of the any shrimp before. I've seen them on blue crabs though and we always let the ones with eggs go.

    I think this time of year is when they mate and then after the winter months they disappear somewhere to lay their eggs. I don't think recreational fishing has much of an impact on the population, maybe not even commercial fishing. I've always thought of them as the cockroach of the sea.. the very delicious and meaty cockroach of the sea.

    I love shrimp, and your making me want to live in Fla, but alas I will be moving far away from the sea. I will jsut haev to visit and catch and cook them then. LOL I love tossing a kast net! Got pretty good at it for a little while when I used to use one for blueback herring we used for bait. LOL

    Nice catch.
