I tried on Saturday with the same results. I quickly packed up and left. It was not worth the effort.

I was fishing at Highbridge Saturday and there were half a dozen boats right at the bridge catching plenty of good-sized ones.

Thanks for all the reports. Long drive for me to go over there, but was well worth it last year.

Been going to Shands bridge every other weekend - hoping to catch shrimp/bait. Saturday was the the same as the previous attempts.....got a total of 4 in about an hour ;-( When we arrived there were no boats which is always a bad sign and while we were there no other boats came by to cast a net. Been talking to some of the folks who live around there and was told there haven't been many boats out. I wonder if the rain lightens up if the run will finally kick into high?

Went shrimping yesterday at the Shands Bridge again. Noon till about 1:15PM. High tide was about noon and the wind and tide was kickin. Got one the whole time. There were no other boats showing up either. Been like this all season. I think last year was a spoiler.

Going again next weekend to take a neighbor out for the first time. Hope things pick up.

I'll let ya know....

It looks like this is just going to be one of those down years for shrimp. The nonstop rain this year has really put a damper on the season.
