    Can anyone clue me in to the shrimp patterns up here in NW FL? I've have some clues about winter shrimping but is there a summer run?

    search the forum and you will find a lot of information on this.

    However it is a Shrimp Migration.
    The winter Shrimp Migration starts around November gets going good in February, March and ends Mayl
    The Summer White Shrimp Starts around July

    Sweet, that would be great. I have only come across one lead from a very old post on another forum but I haven't been able to pinpoint where the spot truly is or what patterns are associated with it.

    I understand that a shrimp run happens September and October at Mud Cove on Alligator Point.
    I have heard from a couple of locals that you can limit out at times. (from the beach)

    I haven't been down in a couple of weeks or so but will be down the 28th for a snapper charter.
    If i get more info I'll report it.
    Mud Cove begins somewhere between Bald Point and Alligator point and ends about where the old KOA was located.

    Keep Looking

    Mud cove is the spot I had heard of but I haven’t been able to find anything about when the run is. Thanks for sharing.

    I talked with some other locals the other day and confirmed the September/October mud cove run.
    This buddy said it was hit or miss but a limit was not an unheard of catch.
    No one seems to be able o tell me the tide to shrimp on.
    Guess I'll try the outgoing tide first like in the Halifax.

    You’re the man! Did anyone comment on daytime versus night time netting?

    Nope
    I’m just going to try outgoing tides first.
    The problem is finding the time to try!
    I have come to realize retired only means you don’t get weekends and holidays off anymore !

    Oh man, I hope that changes for ya! I'm gonna try and get out there sometime between labor day and early duck season to see if I can't figure something out. I really only have weekends, I might be able to make an evening run during the week if I make it a point to get to work early. I'll make sure to say hello if I see you out there.
