This shrimping season is one for the history books. Water temps are running in high 70’s and the catfish, mullet, pilchards, etc., have made this season exhausting! The water has been dirty, adding yet another level of complexity to the situation. Recently, boaters risked it all chasing shrimp at Railroad bridge as a cold front dropped in and they were thrown around like rag dolls. Some boats suffered severe hull damage was from banging into the pilings; one small Jon boat was sinking; light cords were torn away from the lamps. Point being, NEVER go out when a boundary line is passing through — wind-driven Brevard County can do a great impression of a deadly inlet.
