i only went 2 times last time. it was my first time ever throwing a cast net and catching shrimp. when the shrimping picks up, can a person catch them on an incoming tide or it really needs to be going out to really catch them?

Went for a 3rd trip last week and caught another limit. I weighed all the shrimp without the heads for this last trip and had 17 pounds of tails. Most of the shrimp ive caught were the size of the ones pictured in my hand. I had some smaller ones mixed in, but for the majority, they have all been larger. I have even caught a couple sting rays, which blew me away!

jopete, be careful how many you take if it is the weir I believe he is talking about the limit is one 5 gal bucket.
