Default Scallops and Rain?

Planning to make a trip to PSJ next month to do some scalloping. With all the rain being dumped in the area from TS Debbie, do you think it will impact the scallop harvest? Anyone have any first hand experience with this? I know they're not like oysters, but was just wondering if it would have any effect, good, bad or otherwise?

I'd be more worried about the rain we got a couple weeks ago. I was over that way today and the rain wasn't nothing to write home about.

Yes, it will be much harder to see them until the water clears up. I did this one year and it was the worst scalloping I've done.

Thanks for the info guys. As long as they're not affected and just some murky water I can deal with that. Hopefully this storm will move out and we won't have a lot of rain for the next few weeks.

St Marks is a great place.... St Joe is decent, but way overfished...

Several places east of Mexico Beach. People usually think of Port St. Joe when they think of scallops.

I'm going the second week of July in Cape San Blas. Looking forward to it.

Low tide around Cape San Blas and Port St. Joe is a good time to take kids. You can park the car and wade out. Then bend over and pick them up. But, when the water is murky it is difficult to see them.
