    Nice.  I'm still upset I couldn't make it with you guys. Maybe next time.
    That's 30# just for you correct?

    Yes, we all brought home about 30 pounds of cleaned fillets. The total haul was somewhere around 600 pounds, maybe more. Yet still under our legal quantity limits....

    Wish we had kept more 14" Yellowtails!  :'(

    I'm doing a trip in early July. Thanks for your report. You're getting me fired up! Hitting Publix for sure.

    If you mean Publix for whole, head-on shrimp, you'd be much better off finding a fish market that sell them in frozen blocks.

    But if you do have to use Publix for shrimp, don't get the deviened ones as the back/shell has been split down the middle and you need a whole shell so your hook will have it to stick through......

    Good luck!
