We are very proud of our equipment and can sing its' praises until the sun rises after a long night of shrimping but, many times it really takes the words of others to portray just how good our invention and craftmanship really is. So, we have established this page to share some of the stories we have heard about just how good Ozello Shrimper equipment really is. These testimonials were collected from emails, our forum and conversations with our customers.
"Last year after attempting to shrimp with a standard net, I purchased an Ozello Shrimper for this years season. I was glad I did. Heading out for both the 9th and the 10th, I was astonished at how well I did. On the 9th, I ended up with 186 and 10th it was 226. On the 10th a good friend of mine came out with me to assist too."
"I think I have found ANOTHER addiction. It was ALOT of fun to get out there and wade for these shrimp. Now comes the most fun though. EATING!"
"We were a couple dip netters you talked to last night as you guys were working your way back into shore. I was amazed at the amount of shrimp you had in the same time we were out there. I realized its due to shrimp i was loosing or missing due to trying net them. It was great talking to you last night and checking out the Ozello Shrimper and the first thing i did this morning was place an order for one, hopefully to pick up today and try it out tonight. "
"Also, I was pretty surprised to see how, what I would have thought to be a dull burned out halogen light and my amazing super white LED thinking the whiter the brighter the better... But obviously thats not the case..."
"I have to say, this thing works outstanding. Like most I've been using a dip net, and doing pretty good but missing 1 out of 5-8 or so and even more sometimes. I bought mine Sat morning after talking to Richard Fri night and it is worth every cent put into it. I didnt lose a single shrimp that I went after last night, I was able to pull them from deep water, shallow water, on top of grass, under the grass, it didnt matter... There is no escaping this trap. Not only was I impressed with its simple mechanics but I didnt have to waste time to bend down, get wet, handle shrimp, fish it out of the dip net among the other 3lbs of by-catch in the net, not only all that but it leaves the flats unharmed and intact (it's best feature). Its super simple and highly effective, and after a few minutes I was able to figure out how to do it one handed while holding a cold beer"
"Went out last night and I have been fortunate enough to be invited out with Bob, Don Kelly, Richard and Bill Martin. They let me use an Ozello Shrimper and taught me how to use it and needless to say, I am hooked. If there are any left I will be purchasing one tonight .I can truly say that I havn't had this much fun in a long time. Thanks guys. "...they made me a beliver outta me with Mr. Kellys Shrimp trapper!... So for all those guys out there using nets spend the money, and start catchin more shrimp!... the lights you guys have are frreegin awesome!.. Their like walkin around with a sun beam on your head!... You can see shrimp from like 50 feet away!... WOW"
"Don, since meeting you and buying my first shrimper about 4 or 5 seasons ago I have gone out of my way to try and teach people about shrimping.
You might be surprised by the number that said..."I didn't know we could catch shrimp right here"
That sir is thanks to you and now these people will pass it on to others as you have tried to do.
"Don, 2 years ago I bought my shrimper from you and it was one of the best purchases I ever made. The time that you spent with me, showing me your workshop and your very first Ozello Shrimper made me understand your passion and love for not only this sport but your product."
