Large Shrimp

I've been catching some relatively large shrimp in NJ, out back. I believe they are white shrimp, not grass shrimp. Any biologist types out there? Relatively shallow water, throw net. Up to 6".

I believe that they are white shrimp. I have been catching them too, i find them hanging out with the mullet.  I kept a few to eat but ran out of crab and had to use them as bait. Tog and sheepshead also like them.

Read about this a few times. Never saw one-but I have seen many mantis shrimp that size. 

So- is anybody finding shrimp in the fish that they harvest?

Everything eat s shrimp.

Nice pic. I's sure like to see a 6 inch specimen.

We had them here last year but haven't seen any so far this year. Caught a bunch and ate them last fall. Great.

Do those require a shellfish license to harvest?  Or is it a free for all?

Not a clue and I'm tired of worrying if I'm breaking a law with every freaking thing I pull out of the water.

I've seen lawyers posting ads in the annual state fish and game guidebooks for hunting and firearms legal defense.

 

Soon, you may need to have a retainer for a Recreational Fishing Defense Attorney!  :point:

Thanks. You could probably do the popping cork rig for the fish in the back.

 

Nice pic also.

I am pretty dang sure those are white shrimp. Georgia's most important seafood commodity and yummy! :) 

So... it's an invasive species (to NJ) and therefore unregulated?
