I'm Byron Smith and boy do I have some tales I could tell you.
I have been an ocean fisherman for twenty years.
The danger is sublime, but the payoffs are fantastic.
And there is one thing we all know, and that is to...
Prey Before We Eat!
PREY BEFORE YOU EAT
(Somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean off the N.C. coast)
Out here on the ocean, working tough on this shrimping boat, you prey before you eat.
Nearly everything we eat to survive out here for these five weeks is fished out of the ocean.
Heavy baskets thump around, booms swing dangerously, nets and rope can drag you into the sea.
It is dangerous out here, for if you are dragged into the ocean it will be the ocean predators saying... Prey Before You Eat!
