Not sure...but I think it's hard to predict.
However 3 weeks ago I was fishing Blackwater bay during what I guess was a shrimp hatch, mating, jubilee or something. Shrimp was being chased to the surface by specks all over a 1 - 2 acre portion of the bay I was fishing...busting the surface made for some great top water action...came back the next day, same time, tide, etc...nothing. So like I said, I think it's hard to predict. Maybe some more seasoned fellas have more input.

It seems to me they started showing up about this time last year and on into the time we started getting cold snaps but I havn't seen any yet this year while out throwing the net for mullet. Conditions are a lot different this year too. We have had a lot of rain and water is pretty murky. I am sure there is not as much salinity either. I hope someone who knows more about it than me will be able to give some better insights.
