Shrimping Tools



When shrimping, you will always run into other shrimpers. If you go shrimping on the weekend, this will be especially so.

Shrimping is so much fun and so productive that there can be nights where you are accompanied by 50 or more shrimpers on the same grass flats.

To help make your shrimping and the shrimping of fellow shrimpers more enjoyable, follow these simple rules:

  • Keep your light source facing down at all time. Your light will blind others and prevent them from seeing shrimp.
  • Keep a safe distance from others. Your light will bleed into the zone of people next to you and will prevent them from seeing their prey.
  • If you notice children nearby, make all efforts to limit your use of language that either they or their parents may find objectionable.
  • When walking through the grass flats, make it a point to limit how much mud you stir up.
  • Don't walk upcurrent of another shrimper if at all possible.
  • Shrimping is not a race. If you storm through the grass flats, you will not catch more shrimp. You will only aggravate other shrimpers with the amount of mud you create.
  • Do not encircle another shrimper and prevent them from shrimping.
  • Do not use a boat.
  • Say hello and introduce yourself.
  • Share tips and tactics for catching more shrimp. There are plenty of them to go around.
