Trawl (Individual Bait-Shrimp Trawl)
For use in SALT WATER only. A bag-shaped net which is dragged along the bottom or through the water to catch aquatic life. Only hand-operated trawls are permitted; use of mechanical devices is unlawful.
Only one trawl per boat is allowed.
Must have an individual bait-shrimp trawl tag in one’s possession while trawling (pg. 21).
Must not be greater than 20 feet in width between the doors.
Mesh size must not be smaller than 8-3/4 inches over a consecutive series of five stretched meshes.
Boards must not be larger than 450 square inches each.
Nongame fish (except those species regulated by bag or size limits) taken incidental to legal shrimping operations may be retained.
"Legal shrimping operations" means the use of a legal trawl in places, at times, and in manners as authorized by TPWD (see Shrimp Regulations).
200 nongame fish taken with an individual bait-shrimp trawl may be retained per person for bait purposes only.

If you want to look at shrimp, maybe collect your own natural bait, it would be worth the trouble to rig up a push seine and put it to work
