FISHING: Perennially popular spot-shrimp season off West Seattle on Thursday

(WDFW photo)

Before we get to today’s list of events, an FYI for tomorrow – it’s likely to be one of the busiest days of the year at Don Armeni Boat Ramp, because it’s the one-day “season” for spot-shrimp fishing in nearby waters, 9 am-1 pm Thursday, May 25th. Usually the turnout fills the Don Armeni parking lot. Spot shrimp are the largest shrimp in Puget Sound, per WDFW. The state says Elliott Bay will be open this year as well as the central Sound.

    I have fond memories of going shrimping with my Dad in Hood Canal for many, many years and its when the season is regulated as it is these shrimp will survive and be consumed by the people who love them, but it’s the people who take more than allowed will be the demise of them.

    Are there any good charters that take folks out spot shrimping?

Sorry, comment time is over.
