Default Scallops around Pensacola area

Can anyone give me any inside information on any scallops around the bays or pass etc. I'm not making our annual trip to St.Joe this year and would like to pick up a few local. I have discovered a spot and would be glad to share but the water visibility his horrible. Any Advice? Thanks Guys

It may be illegal around here if i read the regs correct the other day. I do admit i got side tracked staring at the cover photo for a while.

Because we have a limited supply. For one reason or another our scallop population is nothing like it is over in Port St.Joe.

Legal Florida scalloping is Bay county at Mexico Beach canal (other side of Panama City) to Pasco/Hernando County near Aripeka. A long time ago when we had more grass beds there was scalloping here. Old timers say a hurricane covered the beds and caused the grasses and bivalves to die out. Add pollution on top of that and we have lost a lot of the grasses that scallops thrive. Important reason to be careful with your prop around shallow water.

The only reason I can think is our bay water has a different salinity than theirs.
