These shrimp trawlers are usually seen offshore, but this photo, taken at the dock in Port Royal, catches the old workhorses peacefully resting.

Starting and ending dates for the three shrimp seasons in South Carolina are determined each year by the state’s Department of Natural Resources. Roe season comes in the spring, May or June, and begins when DNR determines an adequate number of eggs have been spawned.

June until August is the time for catching brown shrimp and then the white shrimp – the offspring of the spring spawn – appear in the waters. This long season generally peaks between September and October, and it lasts until December or January, when the water temperature finally drops to the mid-40s.

Those who make their living fishing South Carolina waters are closely attuned to yearly variations in conditions, and they work long days to maximize their catches.

Great shot Paul! Say did you use the new camera
stand Jess got for her birthday. Would have been
neat for one or both of you to be in the photo.

Who knows maybe your photos will be famous one day!

Thanks for sharing!

Love Mom/Gramie
