Default Scallop season is a month away.

I know die hard fishermen can’t stand the scallop crowds. But scalloping is a great family activity. . . . . . . . Get those kids out there and make lifelong memories. Cause as mine is going into the Airforce they will be gone before you know it.

I worked 19 days straight and I am counting the days down to the Sunday of opening weekend for 3 days straight of scalloping.

Looks like fun. I remember seeing a lot of people doing it in Port St. Joe Bay while camping on the cape. Some people had 5-gal buckets full. Is there a limit?

The limit is 2 gallons in the shell per person up to 10gallons per boat. No matter how many people you have. Or 1 pt of meat(cleaned on the water) per person up to 4 pints per boat. Again no matter how many people you have.

10'+ Tiger shark swam by my boat down by Pepperfish Key last year.
Removed all thoughts of getting in the water.
Ya'll enjoy. I'll buy mine.

Scalloping is a blast. I have scalloped for 4 hours straight and thought I had only been in the water for 1 hour! Plus those bay scallops are super sweet and make for some good eating.

^^^ I did the same last year with no sunscreen. Figured I'd check and see if any were around real quick, got caught up and lost track of time. The next couple days of my vacation weren't very pleasant.

It`s great entertainment to watch those folks at the Presnell ramp all trying to put in when scallop season starts.

That`s a genuine rat killin`.

Always swim wearing a T-shirt. Nuff said.
