    So is the incoming tide when the run is best? I am new to the area.

    I was getting them on the outgoing tide. I cant say for certain that's the way to do it since this was my first time but it seemed to work. All I know is that the run was hard for about an hour and then very sporadic after that.

    When I was at Crook and Crook they had just received a shipment of nets so they're definitely in stock.

    I went lastnight just cuase the tide was early and i wanted to check things out with no moon. 7 shrimp, mediums. in 4 hours. couple of drinks later and i cashed in the shrimp for 2 tarpons. back in early. hey, anyone else seen the intercontinental hotels new light display? pretty cool. The whole buildings face that u see from the water is like a screen but with light bars on every room. Scrolling Welcome to Miami, and ofcourse, what was really cool was while i was on with a tarpon the building is in the background and it now had a shadow of a hot girl dancing very nicely. Get out there and check it out. No shrimp yet. Not one commercial guy outhere. I was all alone. before and after this full moon coming they will run. Im sure of it. Well i really hope so.

    Been following the thread trying to pick up some basics. I'm hoping to bring my 5yo son down to try a little shrimping. He really enjoys catching critters with a dip net around the sandbars, so I think he would really enjoy this. What ramps are recommended (safe for truck and family at night) and where would be a good place to start looking for shrimp? Not looking for anyone's "honey holes" just want him to be entertained and make some good memories.
    Thanks
