My family are all shrimpers. I spent my summers draggin nets with my uncle’s in Alabama. We always had a flare gun in the boat but nothing like what this seems.
Not a ton of details on this at the moment, however the Galveston Daily News reported a commercial shrimper shot at another fisherman in a kayak in Galveston. This happened near the 61st street pier, not far from where the shrimper was trolling. Apparently, the kayaker and shrimp boat captain argued with words over who had the right of way just before shots went off.
No injuries and no damage to the kayak.
Police in Galveston working with the Texas Game Wardens took the shrimp boat captain into custody and he’s been charged with deadly conduct.
