Review of the Wavewalk S4 as a shrimping boat

By Fin Gold

The stability and closeness to the water make the Wavewalk S4 a perfect shrimping platform.
We go out on our S4 boat, named “The Dub”, with 2 or 3 people. One person in the back to operate the Tohatsu 3.5 hp motor, the shrimper in the front standing up with the cast net, and maybe a shrimp processor/sorter in the middle.
We recently harvested 40 lbs (heads off) of green-tail shrimp in 4 days of outings.

    Thank you Fin,

    Great video and pictures – Looks like a lot of fun!
    This post makes me feel like being there and doing that 🙂

    I’m glad to see that your S4 serves you well as the stable, lightweight, shallow-draft alternative to your 18 ft skiff that you expected it to be.

    And 40 lbs of shrimp in 4 days… wow!! 😮

    Great Video,

    Looks like a lot of fun throwing your net and filling the pail with yummy shrimp.

    Congrats, and keep the reports coming. 🙂
