Default RE: Decent Size Shrimp

size matters- in terms of having enough weight to cast the shrimp. elephants eat peanuts when you can throw them at the elephant's face...

in other words- big shrimp are preferred for casting reasons only. the live shrimp are supplied typically by the same person to all our local shops, so if the supplier is catching large shrimp you will get large shrimp at the shop. basically, whatever the supplier is catching is what you can buy. the shrimp have been poor this year in terms of size, IMHO.
