Unlike the Texas Gulf Coast, there are not a lot of commercial shrimping boats along the Florida Gulf Coast (at least not in my region). I watched this outrigger motor out of John’s Pass earlier this week.
Heading out to trawl for the “fruit of the sea” (according to Benjamin Buford Blue aka Bubba). I don’t know about you but I can’t think of shrimping without remembering that famous scene from Forrest Gump. And, if by chance, you haven’t seen this movie, don’t walk but run, Forrest, run!
