Anyone here drag a 20ft trawl for your own shrimp? Do you catch your limit of 4 quarts when you go?

My dad and I used to go a long time ago, like 40 years, in a Boston whaler. Dad liked to go just outside the breakers in the surf back then. I donít remember catching a ton of shrimp. Plenty of bycatch, Iím not sure he knew what he was doing. It was kind of risky right in near the breakers. We did catch some big shrimp on occasion. We didnít do it for very long. I think he decided it was more practical to buy shrimp and ultimately cheaper. But itís probably something you get better with the more you stick with it. No internet back then to look up how tos.

we did it for a while, but didn't catch much shrimp and the rules and regs and seasons are a PITA to keep up with. a bright spot though was that we took the kids and the by catch had all kinds of fishes and crabs that the kids never saw before, some i never saw before. we even started a saltwater aquarium with the stuff we'd catch. very educational stuff.

My dad tried that here in Galveston about 60 yrs ago. He lost his net near Sea Wolf Park, Back then it was known as the Quarranteen Station.....I remember shrimp was $1.25 a quart !! don't remember him catching anything before he lost the net.Funny tho, I saw the rope come loose from the boat.
