    Tonight one of their stops is on the Battery(waterfront) in Charleston, SC. I live about 75 miles from there. It's so cool to see a place so familar on a national TV show.

    One of the tasks they had to choose from was to pop heads off of 200 lbs of shrimp. I should be on that show - My husband and I can pop heads off 40 lbs in less than 30 minutes. We go shrimping every weekend (but not on big shrimp boat like that). SC has shrimp baiting season, you stick PVC pipe and stick down in the water, throw a bait ball made of clay and fish meal down at the bottom of the poll. then you drive a regular size boat (our is a 15 Palm Beach) along beside the polls and throw the net out over the bait to catch the shrimp. I drive the boat and my husband throws the net.

    Shrimp baiting season only lasts for 2 months from Sept - Nov. The big shrimp boats that pull the nets have a longer season. [This Message was Edited on 10/11/2005]
