Has anyone been oystering in East or Escambia Bay lately ? I was wondering if anyone has been able to find any. I went to several of my favorite beds this weekend and was not able to pick any legal size ones. All of the legal size shells I picked up were dead. I only harvest what me and my family can eat and would sure like to find them.

Went to a few spots in East Bay last month & it was dismal. One of the few beds that had live oysters last year was "replenished" by the State. They dumped the new rock material right on top of the old oyster bed. One commercial boat was out there - he came over to me to see if i was getting anyting. He said he'd be real licky if he covered the gas cost with the oysters he got.
