Brevard Shrimp Report: October 2015

The summer shrimping season is winding down (Daytona is dead). This just means to lower your expectations but don’t retire your nets. South Daytona fell apart in August after Central Florida was hit with several days of torrential rains. The shrimp that was caught in Flagler were bait size and the juice has not been worth the squeeze. However, Central Floridians make lemonade by heading further North to both Welaka and Paletka mopping up 5 gallon buckets in record time (under 3 hours, 2 anglers). The popular places being Green Cove City pier, East side of Turkey Island (Welaka) and Palatka (Condo’s). Anglers are reporting going home with solid mediums (after culling out smalls) with 20% of large sizes mixed in. Welaka averaging 15 – 30 a pull, and Condo’s averaging 50 -60 a pull during the 20 minute slack tide. The key thing I am hearing is the shrimp have been consistently pushing off the bottom at SLACK tide at the Condo’s. Where are these Condo’s? From Deland, take US 17 North past Crescent City to Pomonda Park, left at stoplight on to 308-B (takes you to ramp). Head South from ramp 1 mile to the Condo’s. The drive may be 2 hours or less, but well worth the trip! Melbourne still reporting “heart”, meaning they invest a lot of time and effort and go home with a shrimp cocktail for one. We are noting anglers are pulling out their winter shrimp gear anticipatingOctober 1, 20150 186

Shrimp Report: June 2015

Shrimping season has ended for those who fought a long war in Volusia County from November to May 2015. Yes, the shrimp are still in the river but the sizes are very small averaging 3 inches with a small percentage above 4 inches. The bait fish are blacking out our lights and the mosquito’s are a nuisance. June 1, 20150 174
