Shrimp are lazy, when current is running scent from bait carried downstream, if it is running hard no shrimp in pot. Wait for tides with little change from high to low, then you can let pots soak awhile. If there is a big change from high to low, set pots to catch the slack. I think its a waste of time to have them out there when current is running. SW side of Sucia is a popular spot. Good luck

So San Jauns shrimps are tiny when compared to Alaskan shrimp!

Sorry, not really what you're looking for, but definitely the most fun way to get shrimp. You can slurp up clouds of them.

You are my kind of people.

Not sure about coonstripe shrimp, but do know a thing or two about spot prawns. When fishing was good in Lions Bay it was a 5 minute walk to the rowboat and a 5 minute row to my pots. We got upwards of 400 prawns in 4 pots (2011), but the catches have dropped off substantially over the last few years and there is now a seasonal closure in Howe Sound (Area 28) until April 1 because of a low spawner index. You need at least 300' of weighted (preferably leaded line) and an anchor (10-15lbs) to the bottom followed by your traps (ie an anchor between your traps and float). You want anchor, 15 feet of line, trap, and 15 feet of line and trap. I see too many pots floating around because people either dropped them in too great a depth or didn't use an anchor. I use 2 traps per line as those are the Cdn regs. Bait with commercial bait or pilchards (that's what the commercial guys use). Don't waste your time with fish heads or other bait.

Lol Boydski that's diabolical. And kind of beautiful at the same time!

Can someone define the difference between shrimp and prawn. I always understood it was one species, Americans call them shrimp, others, Aussies incl, call them prawns.
Anyone remember the song, "A white sport coat, and a pink crustacean"?

Shrimp - San Juan Islands

There are two main families of shrimp/prawns: Family Penaeidae (for example the Gulf shrimp/prawns of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida prawn fisheries), and Family Pandalidae which include many of the shrimps/prawns of the west coast of North America. Whether you call them shrimp or prawns is your choice.

Examples of Penaeid shrimp:

If crabbing, don't use this trap!

Ok, that's different. I go diving for Maine lobsters and scallops in 200' of water, but never thought about shrimp. The things we do for dinner.

Hmmm interesting. Thanks, I had heard it was because prawn are carnivores and shrimp are herbivores.

Where at? Jealous. Saw a few shrimp pots out side of iceberg point off Lopez on our way to Roche yesterday but think only commercial is available in Washington right now.

No. Wife was in charge of the camera. We were fishing off Lions Bay in Howe Sound. It's been closed since January 1, as the berried prawn index was down. We didn't pull yesterday and CPUE less than half of Thursday. Prawns are a decent size for the area, at about 12 per lb.

4 years ago I was getting 100/pot on some days and that hand pulling from a rowboat. About 20-25% of that this year after a lengthy Rec. closure isn't that good. I suspect catch rates will decline from here.
