I am not entirely confident on the earliest you can shrimp but I know that the shrimp run a lot more often in the St. John's than they do on the West coast. I think they run all year to be honest. If the last years have been any indicator, they should be running right now. Most people on that side of the State tend to shrimp with long handled dip nets and submersible lights. Some good resources for that end of the state are the ISAA and LeeNoga's blog. They both are invaluable resources for finding when, where and how to go shrimping over there.

New to the site.Im a little late on the topic but i figure its better late then never. I went to greencove public peir on the fourth of july and took my limit on the biggest shrimp i have ever pulled from that peir. I have shrimped there since i was a boy with my father but never caught them that nice. I woulnt have called them jumbo but large for sure.
