We went out on 12/30 with a very strong outgoing tide and had a really good push of shrimp. Surprisingly large average size as well, normally there are a lot of small ones. Ended up with a gallon zip lock back full after popping the heads. Could have gotten more but went fishing instead, only shrimped for about 2 hours.

Power. The nets are secured to the sides of the boats via tubes that allow them to be quickly raised and lowered as needed. When the shrimp are running good it can get pretty crazy with boats crisscrossing back and forth over the same area.

The fish follow the bait. Talking about the 70's, the Mackeral and Kingfish would school off of the major inlets and gorge on shrimp. When we filleted them their bellies would be full. Pilchards were so thick along the beaches and in the bay that at times I couldn't lift my net into the boat without first letting some go. Imagine a headboat coming in with over 150 Kingfish. It was common.
