Went out this past Wed (4/30) and Thursday (5/1). Wed. was really windy but shrimping was still OK when I got to the shallower weeds. Thurs had great conditions. Got 112 on Wed and 213 on Thursday. Sizes have been consistent all year for me - mostly med with about 1/4 large. The largest average I got this year was in March. Went out from the Desoto toll plaza.
Has anyone tried any of the locations off 275 north or south of the bridge. I'd love to save some driving time if any of those hold shrimp (I'm coming from the east side of Tampa Bay. A couple of years ago I did stop and check out the west side of the first key north of the bridge. There was little grass and I saw only a few very small shrimp (probably resident shrimp - not migrating ones)
