    I'm not sure about tides, but I remember as a child when I was with my granparents in Florida how we went shrimping. My grandfather had a 5 gallon bucket with small holes punched in the bottom, we would fish at the break of dawn, cut the small fish up and place into bucket, lower slowly off of a bridge, tie off to said bridge, retrieve around lunch for shrimp coctails.
    Don't know if that helps you or not, but that's how he did it and we always had enough shrimp to go around.

    In our family we use a triangular net to work weed beds and this works best on an incoming tide when the shrimps are taking refuge.

    Later in the tide a series of old bicyle wheels, each with a belly of fine net sewn across, also catches a good few. Bait these with bits of crushed up crab
