    Shrimping

    Any of the Docks are good especially if they have lights in combination with an outgoing Tide.
    I use the Star Fires from wally world they are 13.88 they get hot and break easy so keep them in the water. The Shrimp have been big this year not as big as the Haulover shrimp though.

    The coming full moon should be excellent!

    Planing on Oak Hill tomorrow night Tide should be running out till about Midnight there.

    They are best steamed in Budwiser and Old Bay seasoning. These are the Indian River Reds very tasty. Much better than the whites they castnet in the Hallifax for during the Summer.

    We used to catch Herring that way when I was a kid -- it is cool! I bet it's even more fun to dip the shrimp cause they're good to eat. Jigmaster has the cooking instructions down pat -- steamed in beer & Old Bay; same combination I use for steaming hard crabs.
