    I'm new to the site. Till a week ago I had no clue you could catch shrimp with a castnet. I was looking at fishing videos on youtube when I came across the shrimpnfish website and decide to join. I'm looking forward to meeting some other fishing enthusiast. right now I'm interested on some surf pompano fishing info. If anyone can chime in ill appreciate it. Thanks!!!!

    Welcome to the forum. Read the rules and get in a few more posts. Once you reach the minimum post count you can access the restricted regional areas with fishing and shrimping reports.
    Before I move down here last year I wasn’t aware that shrimp were caught using dip nets under lights as they move through in the river. That seems to be the most common method around Volusia. We had used a 100’ seine net back when I was young and living on the GA coast.

    My friend grew up in the Jacksonville area, said everyone there was using cast nets for shrimp when he was growing up...

    Cast netting summer shrimp and dipping winter reds is how most folks do it.
