Public invited to weekend freshwater shrimp harvest

Monday, August 30, 2010
Shrimp will be available for purchase at Eddy-Lynn's Shrimp Farm Saturday through Sept. 6. It can be purchased for $10 per pound.

PUTNAM COUNTY -- Putnam County residents Keith and Katrina Henderson will be harvesting the shrimp from four ponds this year over the Labor Day weekend. Eddy-Lynn's Shrimp Farm is proud to be in its fourth year and is continuing to improve and grow.

As in previous years, the public is invited to the harvesting event and shrimp will be available daily for purchase Saturday through Sept. 6. On Saturday and Sunday, a pond will be drained at approximately noon each day for the visitors who wish to see the harvest in action.

Along with delicious food, Airbrush Island will be set up this year, along with a wine tasting booth, lemon shakeups, an actual Gulf Shore Shrimp Boat for viewing and, of course, fun for the entire family. For those interested in making it a weekend event, there are also areas for primitive camping.

Shrimp are $10 per pound and packaged in 2-lb. bags. As always, there are usually an abundance of crawfish available for purchase also. Eddy-Lynn's is located just off Highway 240 on 900 E. at the Hendricks/Putnam County line. Bring your lawn chairs and coolers. For more information check out the website at

  • I want to thank the banner for this article. Sometime Sun (Aug 29) someone stole our sign at 900 E and 240. It is a large sign with a bright blue background and yellow letter. It would have taken more than one person to move. If anyone driving down 240 Sun saw this sigh being moved please call 765-386-7496

  • You might check with the county highway department. The ditches looked freshly mowed, perhaps they removed the sign to mow.
