Fish & Grab “Shrimp Grab"


Our next outing is planned to be an evening Shrimp and Crab “Grab” trip to the shallow waters off Tierra Verde/Mullet Key on Friday, June 14th. 

We will have a fish/shrimp/crab boil/fry/grill/bake at the club for participants and guests on Saturday, June 15th.

Registration requested, but not required.

Details are:

  • Preparation -
    • A. Skippers (fishing boat owners) who plan to participate are requested to contact Marty ( or 813-956-3518) by June 8 so we can plan on “fleet” size.  Please id the # of crew you can accommodate.   “Stowaways” (fishermen/women crew) are requested to “sign-in” by June 8 so we can get all on board.  Late arrivals will be accommodated, if at all possible.
    • B.  Appropriate fishing gear for shrimp and crabs will be required.  Members unsure of what to bring should check Trending Now posts or contact one of the committee members for advice.  Contact information is below.   Specifically required are;
      • Dive boots or other hard soled water shoes.
      • Flashlight, “headlamp” style, available at Harbor Freight, is ideal.
      • A fine mesh “dip” net with a long handle.  Some have used a swimming pool skimmer net.  Appropriate nets are available at West Marine and local tackle shops.
      • A Seine net is optional.  It may be used in tandem with another boat or “skimmed” along the shoreline.
      • 5A live well or aerated bucket to keep the catch alive or a large ice chest to immediately chill the critters.
      • Fishing License!  If you are 65 or older & a Florida resident, your Florida photo id is acceptable, otherwise you need a license.  See Florida Fishing Regulations for details.
  •  “Skippers” meeting and equipment review at 5:30 P.M.  All participants are requested to attend.  Crew will be matched with skippers where necessary.  Vessels, Gear, Bait, and Charts will be reviewed and potential fishing areas discussed.
  • Fleet underway by 6:30 P.M.
  • Return to BCYC between 10 and 12 P.M. for late night Fish Tales, and Happy Hour.
  • Cookout preparation begins at 5 P.M on Saturday.   Participants are requested to bring some salad preparations and desserts.  Publix is open and Save on Seafood is open until 5:30 in the unlikely event that our catch is insufficient to feed participants and guests.  The hat will be passed for contributions.
