Default searching for fiddler crabs

Went out with my fishing buddy for a couple hrs.to search for some fiddler crabs, none today, but had a great time drifting on shallow waterand watching the sunset. Would some of the pros give us some insights?....when do they usually come up to thetop...last yearwe were lucky and foundseveral hundredsgoing here and there ..... sheephead action is around the corner so...we like to catch'm with a scoop net rather than setting a trap for them..Thanks.

I bought them at the bait shop by Waffle House in Gulf Breeze for 2.59 a dozen, but had no luck at all with them at 3mb yesterday.
