Well, we are on year three of the four year cycle. So they should be pretty good.

Any tips for scallops? I'm going on a trip down to Cape San Blas over July 4th weekend with friends, and will be scalloping without a boat.

In general the 2 things I always recommend is:

1.) go to where all the boats are, there is a reason people are clumped together. Not the water depth, amount of grass, etc that most people are in and especially those doing well.

2.) If you are not picking them up pretty regularly, then move 50 yards. Don't stay in the same place more than 15 minutes if you are not loading up on them. 50 yards can make a huge difference.

If you don't have at least a kayak it is going to be very tough unless they are thick right by one of the 3-4 places you can access from the road which is very unlikely.

Some years I've found them so thick in 8 ft of water I can't pick them all up before I run out of breath. Other years there is none deep and they are in 18-24 inches of water.

FWC said report will be out mid July and the format will be changed to a graph showing last four years and will not post number counts as in the past. Don't like this at all.
