3 Days Ago
I went shrimping with a good friend last night and helped out as deck hand and pilot. We had a blast, caught some shrimp, flounder, squid, blue crabs, a small sea turtle, tons of mantis shrimp and just about every species of everything that swims. Randy almost got snatched overboard by a porpoise that grabbed the line on the bag of the net as he was letting it out. Really smashed his hand but it could've been a lot worse. The porpoises are never tiring, always hungry and tear holes in the net at every opportunity. We were flanked port and starboard all night and into the daylight by fifteen or so.
