The 2006 shrimp-baiting season will open at noon Friday, Sept. 15 in South Carolina waters.
Recreational shrimpers who purchase a shrimp-baiting license can legally cast their nets for shrimp over bait during this season. Shrimp-baiting season will remain open until noon Wednesday, Nov.13. The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) opens the shrimp-baiting season annually on the last Friday on or before the 15th of September each year. Because Sept. 1 falls on a Friday this year, the season opens on the third Friday of the month. (Photo courtesy Phillip Jones - SCDNR)
