Time to get IN the water!

By July 15, 2013whatsNext

Well it is HOT summer has arrived and the water has warmed up to a comfortable 86 or 87 degrees! I know that may sound hot to some, but when the air temps are in the mid 90’s that doesn’t feel to bad. And We have the perfect activity for this time of year.

Scalloping, these bi valve creatures invade our flats every year and are some of the tastiest treats our waters have to offer. They are very easy to capture also, all you need is a mask and snorkel, some swim fins, and a mesh bag to carry them in. Finding them is not very difficult once you know what you are looking for, it is like an underwater Easter egg hunt.

There are some laws that you must abide by such as you cannot be in possession of scallops south of the Pasco/ Hernando county line. And you can only have 2 gallons per person in you boat at any time with a limit of 10 gallons per boat at any time. Scalloping is a great way to “beat the heat” this time of year for sure, and anybody can do it. And at the end of the day you will have a great dinner for your efforts.

If you are interested in doing a scallop charter just give me a shout and we will get in the water.
