Shrimpers: Photo 1

Photo detail

Texas Parks and Wildlife Capt. Rex Mayes has worked for the department for 28 years and said he recognizes newer generations aren't as willing to continue shrimping in the state's bays because of the costly risk of failure. Mayes said high fuel prices have made it more difficult to profit off of a catch and experience is especially important in order to successfully navigate the bay waters.
