WTG, Kevin!! You'll be eating good tonight!!

I recently tried fresh gulf shrimp from FL for the first time and was very impressed. Nothing like what we get around here. I bet those cold water shrimp are great!

Skipperdude picks up some beauts there in AK, also. Since he's got a commercial license, he sells them right off his boat when he returns.

The good life!!

Growing up on the Gulf Coast, I always thought Prawns were fresh water and Shrimp were salt water. Google?

Kevin, those are beautiful. Many years ago (early 70's) we were boating in Whitter Sound and bought a bunch of those from a shrimp boat. Excellent eating!

ENJOY!!!

Larry-prawns and shrimp are a bit different biologically, something to do with the type of gills. In reality-they are pretty much the same and the names are used interchangeably.

Kevin, those shrimp look just like the ones we have down here in Washington.

Someday I'll make a trip up North and I'd like to know how much shrimp-trap-line to bring. How deep do you normally fish?

These were caught at about 275 feet.

In oz we call them all prawns,but some people refer to the freshwater ones as shrimp.We don't put any shrimp on the barbie,just prawns,which taste best freshly boiled then ice chilled.275 feet is deep.We catch them on sandflats with a scoop net and light.
BTW ours are translucent and go red or orange after cooking.

The term "prawn" or "shrimp" has no biological difference. Like a lot of seafood, the name varies depending on region.
The UK, Ireland, SE Asia, New Zealand and Australia call them prawns, and they are shrimp in North America.

Here in Alaska we call them shrimp, actually "spot shrimp". I think they are probably the same shrimp they catch in Washington but I'm not sure.

We fish in 400-500' of water, five pots. We pull the pots every few hours and leave them down overnight as well. Yesterday we filled the small refrigerator full to the brim. This morning we will pull the pots one last time and head out, across Prince William Sound.

I am writing this on Monday morning. Its early, and I am the only one up, having a nice cup of coffee, looking at the scenery, and the wildlife, having a nice cup of coffee and catching up on work stuff.

We are in a place called Keyhole Anchorage in Wells Bay, Prince William Sound. We are the only boat here. It is dead calm, and very serene this morning.

We are almost 150 miles from home, and about 50 miles from the nearest human habitation.

Here's a couple of photos showing our location on the map, some scenery and some of our shrimp.

Here is a good recipe for broiled shirmp, Alton Browns Shrimp Cocktail Recipe - Food.com

We don't eat much shrimp anymore since it is so hard to find US caught shrimp. If we do get some good shrimp, we will boil if short of time but prefer to use Alton's recipe, or smoke and I do mean smoke them, on the grill with a wood fire.

It was real CRUEL to show those shrimp!!!

Later,
Dan

Excellent catch - thanks for sharing.

We will be in Valdez in August and can't wait to drop a few pots in between trolling for silvers!
