Shrimp boats are an important part of the culture of coastal regions and this is no different in the Golden Isles of Georgia. As an avid seafood lover, I was excited to board the Lady Jane shrimping boat based out of Brunswick.
Our guide, Phil, is a former marine biologist for the state Department of Natural Resources, so if you won't find a fish in the sea that he can't name.
As the trawls come in, the pelicans and seagulls follow closely. Phil pulls the rope and a bounty of creatures come out, ranging from horseshoe crabs, blue crabs, stingrays, shrimp, all manners of fish and even a baby turtle.
Shrimping on the Lady Jane gives guests a chance to truly see where their food comes from and to even taste what fresh shrimp tastes like. This tour is different from any other you will experience on the isles or anywhere else.
