What Is The Water Temp?

    Anyone know the current water temp is around riverbreeze? It is getting cold down around sebastain. Shrimp should get moving soon I think.

    There are a few websites that you can find the water temperatures in that area.

    Its getting colder. Should be in the low 60's by now' I know when we went out 2 weeks ago, it was cold enough not to jump in.

    I like to call the local bait&tackle shops several days before heading down there
    to get an up to date report.

    Carefully crafted University research on small shrimp and water temperature shows the smaller shrimp will migrate up or down depended on water temperature. Optimum favored temp is about 70 deg F. Salinity held constant. At near 30 parts per thousand. This is average Ocean salinity.

    The rapid change in weather induced temperature causes shrimp to rise off the bottom to the top in deeper waters of the IRL and ML water system.

    The higher and cooler winds and water evaporation leaves the dissolved salts behind. This raises the lagoon salinity in the system, particularly in the shallow areas. The Saltier conditions and rapid temperature swings couple with the age of the shrimp triggers the migration.
