James Sharpe from Jacksonville reported the St. John’s river holding crickets.

Winter shrimping ended with full pulls in Volusia and North Brevard County. The hot weather and aggressive mosquitoes is enough reason to hang the nets up, however, reports are coming in for S. Brevard from trappers on Eau Gallie Causeway and Mather’s Bridge. These have been the popular hot spots to catch large brown pink and white shrimp. So far, in June we saw strong yields from land trappers as well as dippers off Mather’s Bridge. It has been early-season erratic, but when it’s on, it’s yielding 400+ from trappers. Those frequenting Titusville Pier at the Max Brewer Bridge have not conceded the end of the season and still make the journey of hope on the planks.

In other regions, reports are coming in from Fort DeSoto, on the West coast, where the season has just started. Reports are also coming in for nice-sized white shrimp in the Northern St. John’s river. These are all normal pockets and it confirms our sport continues to be sustainable despite the health of our juvenile nurseries. The million dollar question this month is whether or not S. Daytona to Flagler see a summer white shrimp run. The flotilla will build just north of Dunlawton Bridge in Port Orange. Fall in line with the flotilla that will be cruising between S. Daytona (Big Tree area) between CM 42 – CM 51. All eyes will be on Flagler County inter-coastal from CM 7-12.

For best odds of a full pull this time of year, try and get your timing right. Summer shrimping tends to yield higher numbers three days before — and two days after — a full moon, new moon moon, or blue moon.

We will be at iCast (July 9-12) showing our 2020 new MacDaddy Aqua SmartIQ “8” mode fishing/shrimping/camping light at booth 4544 under name Ningbo Top Industry. We have added a night time visual distress signal SOS Morse code. We hope to decrease boat accidents during shrimping season for engine failed boats who can use their shrimping light out of water to fire off the SOS signal for help to avoid imminent collisions.
