Default Asian Tiger Prawns

I've heard a lot of stories about these giant, aggressive shrimp moving into the area - curious has anyone seen them or caught any? Would it be possible to catch them in a cast net?

Yes it would be possible to catch them in a cast net for I've caught gulf/bay shrimp in mine. Never seen them though

I also heard about these moving in.
I have not seen any nor heard any thing else since this was started about 1-2- years ago

I was at Willinghamson Seafood in Nicville several months ago and was chit chating with the guy about shrimp when these come up. He said he had just put two in the freezer for the State to pick up and do studies on. He pulled them out and the could have passed as small lobster. I think one was 3/4lb and the other was just under that. Would love to try them out on the BBQ grill!!!!
