my parents bought a condo in Destin in 1972. It's unbelievable how much that place has grown. It's now just a mob scene. Late August is a great time because the kids are back in school and the snowbirds have not arrived yet.

Thank you. We'll get to Destin a few times I am sure. I'll check that out.

Are you supplying them the shrimp? That is by far the best eating shrimp that I've tried.
Yes. I've been selling to them for years now. They insist on extreme quality, so I sell them the best of the best. They also keep the cleanest seafood retail market I have ever seen.

Very few boats fish for royal reds. I used to have problems with the shrimpers fishing for royal reds on the east coast trawling up my Shark gear. I figured it was Zirlottkim when he was still running his boat over here. I made a deal that I'd stay inside 50 fathoms but I still saw sharks and my gear hanging from the shrimpers nets.

Wasnt me on the east coast of Fla. I have caught shark gear before but believe me, that is something to avoid if any way possible. What a mess.I havent been over there in years and when I was over there I was inshore rock shrimping or off Georgia white shrimping. I wasnt capable of fishing reds back then. That Gulf Stream can be vicious for trawling over there when its running at 5 knts or better. Royal reds are some of the finest eating shrimp. They are almost like a cross between a lobster and crab. Sweeter than other shrimp.They are only found very deep. 1200 ft to 1800 ft. Takes about a mile of cable to trawl those depths. At the present, there are only 3 boats in the Gulf equipped to fish them. One is mine and I buy from another one. There are several on east Coast of Fla that fish them. Grit, I know the guy you had trouble with. He can be hard to deal with.
