What size shrimp are you talking mullolnan?
Anything other than minute. I do a bit of spearfishing, it's great being down there in their world. Wrasse are a pain, they are so dozy that you can almost poke the spear through them without firing! The prob is they're not worth eating. Spider crabs are a treat. When they are about, we hang a net off a surface marker bouy and fill it 'til sinking with crabs.
