Photo of the Week: JB

Screencap from footage shot by Phillip Spears and Orlando Thompson II for Edge of the Sea, of shrimper JB who kindly took us out on his boat the Agnes Marie. JB is one of the last independent shrimpers in the Tybee area, and his day starts well before dawn, as the Agnes Marie chugs out of her marina to patrol the local shrimping grounds, and ends with him selling his day’s catch to local restaurants. “People ask me what kind of shrimp I sell – I tell ’em, FRESH!”
