As most of you know our normal Shrimp season is July and August. These are real local and Sound caught. Prices as low as $3 a pound for Heads On, Mixed Sizes. I guess you were told they were Local, very interesting. We did have a late Fall/early Winter run on nice Shrimp in the Ocean. This was a rarity. Possibly, yes local but previously frozen from that batch. Unless I needed something really special, Large or Jumbo (12 to 16) are not normally what I look for. Maybe I've been spoiled, but anything more than $5 a lb is too high.
We went there one day and they were sold out. They told us to keep an eye out for the trawler to be docked in front of their place. We spotted the trawler the next day and went back for those shrimp. Coincidentally after unloading the trawler moved down the Dock a few hundred feet to a slip at Oden's Dock. It remained there to participate in the annual "Day at the Docks". Matter of fact I believe Bluefish snapped a photo of the trawler while it was there. We spoke to the crew, they were from in inland side of the Pamlico.
