    Doesn't look as good as the huge shrimp salad I have planned for tonight. I traded for over 300 pounds of shrimp this weekend. The shrimpers are having a field day this summer. Not much competition and they celebrate their great catch every morning drinking beer. They have no beer inventory control. They drink until it is gone. Then they have to give a bunch to the "Beer Boat" for trades.

    Most of the shrimp boats are bringing in 23 bushels a night. That's 80 pounds of shrimp per bushel. That's 1830 pounds a night. I took 20 cases of beer and only needed 12 to get 300 pounds. 12x13.99=167.88. That's about 55 cents a pound for heads on. By the way, they prefer Bud Lite.

    No, they don't eat them from hunger. :)

    TJ,

    We will NOT let you cook anything for the TBB trip! That is how you are trying to win the big fish pot, you will try to poison the rest of us! LOl!

    Looking forward to fishing with you, but hey, that lobster ravioli is much better than any of this!

    Those look like big scorpions on a skewer. They might be pretty good. Never know until you try it. I've never passed up a cabrito on a big skewer while walking the streets in Mexico. I once ate 17 ribbon fish on a bet. I was screaming on the toilet the next morning with all those little bones coming out.

    Bret, yes I love pepper shrimp. I love shrimp any way. I still think fried is my favorite. I'm boiling up 5 lbs as I type. I chill them in the sink with ice water right after boiling them in Zatamrans shrimp boil, cyene pepper, and tabasco sauce.

    Tom,
    The poison won't kill you, it just makes you sleep for 2 days so I have enough time to catch the big tuna LOL.

    Let me know if you want lobster ravioli, I can bring it with me.

    If you are serious about the Ravioli, then that would be great! But let me call Elliott's to see if they will let me keep it frozen in their freezer while we fish.

    My wife dreams about that lobster ravioli! I'll let you know.
