Default Just returned from PSJ scalloping trip

Stayed on Cape San Blas from July 28 to Aug. 4. This was our third year of scalloping in Port St. Joe/St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. Put in at the state park. Rain kept us off the water several days. First day out we got enough scallops for dinner, made fettuccine Alfredo. The scallops we found were much bigger than last year, so we cut a lot in half to cook. We scalloped the same spot all three years. They were there by thousands last year, but they weren't there like that this year. Worked hard for this supper!

Got enough the second day to use as an appetizer, fried them w/ some snapper filets we brought.
Third time out, got half of what we got the first day. Brought those home & will be enough for dinner for two.

Friday it stormed until late afternoon, so we just rode into the state park, explored the nature trails a bit, waded out, threw the cast net & caught mullet for our dinner that night!

The park is beautiful, full of deer, bucks in velvet , spikes & doe. Bay is loaded w/ mullet, even saw flounder while scalloping. Big sand dunes, like Pcola Beach of days gone by, forest is a beautiful mixture of natural palm trees & pines. Wildlife abounds, including Mosquitos & no see-um's so make sure to bring bug spray if you go!

We responded: in shallow water, near Pig's Island. Pig's Island is on the local maps. We put the boat in at the park & went to Pig's Island.
