    Awesome ! I was getting ready to post a question on doing this when I saw this post...So I will ask here instead...I don't know too much about doing this....I know I occaisionally snag a few nice shrimp in my cast net while getting finger mullet for bait and my wife really would like for me to learn how to get on the shrimp.

    I have a boat and I am up here in fernandina - I understand some people bait up and wait for a specific tide (which one?) to throw but I have seen others post that they just find a deeper hole (how deep should I be looking for?) and throw over it.....I have gotten fat shrimp off the flats where I am netting mullet in the heat of the day but it sounds like he holes are the best bet for a lot at once - Where should I be looking for these holes? directly in the ICW or can I target deep bends in creeks right off the ICW? I also read that you can spot them on a sounder but I'm not sure how to distinguish shrimp for little finfish.....
    I've been trying to research this but seems like a lot I find is not specific to our area and NE FL is a lot different than other parts of the state....Thanks for any advice I appreciate it ! My wife will really appreciate it if I can bring home a couple of lbs of shrimp that isn't just left over bait too....

    THANKS !
    Bob

    555 - what part of the river were you throwing in? Those look better than the ones I was getting in Green Cove last Friday and better numbers too.
