This is the first year were not going in the last 15yrs, pretty disappointing...
Hoping they make a comeback for next year!
Isnt the limit for this short season 40 scallops per person?

Good luck, you can at least get some fishing in while your there as well. Check that rock jetty at the bend when you turn onto the peninsula. There are tons of reds, flounder, and trout there. I like to drag bull-minnows or peter mullet on a jig head with a fluorocarbon leader. I have caught TONS of fish there!

It's rough. Not many people out today and that was a good thing for the ones that didn't come. We normally pick them up even in slim years. Not today. I turned my few back loose after a hour and half and started crabbing. Momma didn't pick up the first one. It's gonna be a while before there's a bunch of scallops again if ever,.
