Went yesterday plenty of shrimp north of Palatka, mostly small, hope they stay and get bigger.

I went out on Saturday at Green Cove Springs. The weather was great in the morning and the shrimp were a little smaller around 30 count. Found that they were in bigger groups the deeper we threw our nets. Around 25-30 feet. Caught our 5 gallons in about 2 hours. Hope this storm pushes out to sea and keeps the shrimp in the river. Lots of fun.

We hit the St. Johns Saturday at the mouth of Blacks Creek (Knight's Marina). Lots and lots of very large shrimp. Ended up with our 5 gallon bucket in about 20 minutes plus 2 gallon sized ziplocs stuffed full of bait-sized shrimp (too small to eat).

what you really mean is out of your 5 gallons you pulled to zip locks full of bait shrimp. We know you don't mean that you took 5 gallons PLUS 2 zip lock bags full. We know that was just a Freudian slip and you really did not break the law RIGHT.

Bag limit: 5 gallons heads-on per person per day, maximum possession limit of 5 gallons per vessel at any time.
Size limit: None

Nope, I mean we got a 5-gallon bucket of eaters plus 2 zip loc bags full of bait size, just like I said.

Limit is 5 gallons per boat. We took two boats. Now STFU!

I see your grateful. I accept your apology for your rudeness. Just thought i try to stop you from getting a visit from a friend.

Went to Greencove today, it was good, nice size shrimp, less than 2hrs for our bucket. Didn't have to cull many small ones.
