At The Shrimper Pier, Brown Pelican

Photographs At The Shrimp Pier

The number of commercial shrimpers here is smaller each year. Still a walk around the area is a photographers dream. These images were taken during a morning visit, which of course brought us into a lunch on the water.

Brown Pelican nest on ‘Crab Bank’ just off shore and a free meal keeps them here. Commercial boats always have fish going overboard.

Above are shrimpers in dock. It’s surprising how colorful they are. The netting themselves are multi colored.

Wholesalers here provide the Charleston restaurants feeding all the out of towners, and sell to locals who come by. It doesn’t get any fresher.

Piers lining the water have more pelicans than anything else.

Dolphins are usually around to compete with the Pelicans for scraps of fish when the boats return to shore. The above was two adults and a juvenile.

    1. We are certainly lucky to have these places, you photograph something new all the time. I have images still not even viewed from the other day.

      They film along here often too. The Mike Rowe ‘Dirty Jobs’ started on one of these shrimp boats, series ‘Outer banks’ is still shot on these piers.

      Just a great spot for food, photos, etc. It’s tough living around here LOL
