I t is a 3W single LED 500 lumens headlamp, I order them on Ebay from China, think they are around $5 and take two weeks to come in and they run on 3 AAA batteries. thanks for watching, I have had a few of these lights for a couple years, only had one that stopped working so I would order two just in case, but the comparable ones in the store are $40 so its well worth it.

Just various type of sea grass, they usually die in winter and bloom again and grow for about 6 to 8 months. Thanks for watching!

I remember back when I was younger, me and some family went shrimping. we run into another fella casting his net and told us he was having a bad night. we told him we only had 8 and he said same as me I only got about 8 pounds myself. I was like no man I only got 8 shrimp. and he thought he was having a bad night...lol..

the trick to catch shrimp and crabs without getting loads of grass and unwanted stuff;
Place the pole your using behind the shrimp and using your toe or feet (if your wearing a shoe) give it a gentle touch to the head/front part as the shrimp jumps backwards. it will automatically jump inside without all the grass, coral shards and unwanted stuff.
For the Blue crab/crabs. simply put it(the net/pole your using) on one side of the crab and touch the crab on the other side, crabs move sideways so it will go inside easily.  Hope this helps to all

We eat them....they are a much sweeter tasting shrimp than the ones you get from the store. Every once and a while we will you a few for bait to catch snook, trout and red fish at a few spots we have when leaving Ft. Desoto. Thanks for the question.

Hello thanks for asking, when your out at night you still want to shuffle your feet. We are wearing shoe's and the string rays are only in the sand and the shrimp are in the grass so the only time you see them in the grassy areas is when their are sand holes or they are just swimming along. You get use to what to look for after seeing one or two of them. Hope this answers your question, thanks for viewing.

This looks like fun, we live in Tampa, what are the rules for doing this at night, and is there a max amount you can have, and what time of year is this allowed, thank you.

It is very fun even for those who don't really eat shrimp, they just enjoy being in the water and seeing everything you catch or come across.

Saw about a 10 footer behind my Dads House in the inter coastal in Bellaire. just south of the causeway. I guess they venture out every know and then. First time I have seen a gator in salt in 37 years around here. I was shocked.

What part of fort de soto did you go shrimping and crabbing at? I was planning on camping there in the for memorial weekend but never knew exactly where to go in the park to get shrimp and crab like that. I've tried to fish at their pier with no luck. Any advise?

not true man, we see gators in salt water all the time here on the Gulf Coast. They usually don't stay, but that's not a given either (although I don't think I've ever seen one out on the grass flats). Don't forget the crocs either, after seeing them I'd take the random gator any day.

A few years ago, a fishing buddy of mine along with some mutual friends were shrimping in Mississippi Sound(Mobile Bay). As they were picking through a drag, they suddenly thought they heard someone yelling. Thinking that it was just some people partying out on Dauphin Island, they ignored it. But, a short time later, they heard it again. Motoring towards the calls, they soon found 3 people clinging to their capsized boat. One was in shock, and the others were hurt but all recovered well.

What kind of head lamp you use ? look will good. can you let me know please. where i can buy it. Thanks
Michael Hamm

@floridafishingo Well you want a grassy area that gets extremely shallow on negative tides or near zero tides. The area has to be close to a pass for the shrimp to be able to be pushed out. Usually the last hour of the out going tide and the first 2 hours of the incoming tide. the shrimp hide in the sand and after dark they star to come out. You need a good head lamp, you can get a net at Sports Authority for $15. I am not sure how good it would be right at the river Try around the Skyway
