Nothing like shrimp fresh from the gulf. Picked up a few pounds yesterday in Golden Meadow.

9 to 15 count shrimp - $4.50/pound

16 to 24 count - $3.50/pound 10 lbs for $30

Wow... prices are high right now!

I used to fly helicopters in the Gulf, and worked a lot out of Fourchon. I'd buy off the boats and the most I EVER paid was $2.50/lb... even for the monsters.

I live in South Georgia, and I'd buy 50-100 lbs, then take care of the neighbors here!:D

Your last name brings back fond memories of a girl named Monique with your last name. Sigh.... long time ago....

I'm Jealous ... We do get lots shipped here from there...but...
The ONLY advantage to cold water shrimp is that they are very small and do not have to be deveined before eating.

I am waiting for the inshore season to start, we have quite a few shrimpers at work and then it starts ...........

Frank, who did you fly for? My company has the property next to the ERA heliport.
