Hey WildStyle, when I was younger I used to go to a couple of different spots in Bal Harbour, Bar Harbour area. I would wait until a full moon, go out to one of the jettys in the area, or under a bridge (if it's not too shady, although in Bal Harbour there's not much shady stuff going on, even under bridges) and use a weighted net. You wait for the moonlight to reflect off of a school of shrimp when they pass through the shallow and narrow part of inlet near the jetty and you toss in a weighted net. More often than not, I would end up with more fresh shrimp than I could handle. I would usually freeze most and give some to my friends. Big shrimp too, 20 per lb. As far as blue crabs go, I used to catch them by accident all the time in the intracoastal off of the 79th street causeway near North Beach. You just have to make sure you're using a heavy test line cause they'll usually try to snap the line. If you let your bait (live shrimp seemed to work best) skim the bottom and there are crabs around they'll go after it. I've never used a trap or anything but my uncle uses traps and likes to go lobstering in the keys during the season too. Hope that helps.
