Scalloping Report: Port St. Joe
Went for a few hours today.
Not the best weather, off/on rain and mostly overcast with moderate chop.
Left from Presnells and there were about 6 trailers there at 11am.
Had most of the bay to ourselves. Tried the Cape side directly across from Presnells. Stayed 20 minutes or so and only got a few.
Saw 3 other boats around us. 1 stayed the other 2 left rather quickly after they pulled up.
Went over to the flats at the head of the bay. In about 2 feet of water.
We ended of with about 4 gallons worth with 2 adults and 2 kids (4 year old and 11 year old).
They were hard earned. Had to really dig for them. 90% of them were gotten by feeling under "snot-grass" and clumps of seaweed.
Only saw a few visible and filtering. It was almost like they were dug into the sand a little, only way I can think to describe it was it was like they were sleeping?
As the reports from FWC suggested, scallop counts appear to be rather low.
Overall, it was fun as always but not too productive. But form what the guys working for Presnells say we are getting more than most people.
We 2 days left. Will try and update as we go.
