Help out our friends at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission by taking their scallop survey.

( Survey over )

After some extended seasons FWC scientists determined that the bay scallop population in the harvest area remained stable. The FWC is now considering extending the recreational harvest season by two weeks. Extending the season at the end could benefit small businesses because September is when fishing levels usually drop off. Bay scallops also are larger at the end of the season.

    Thanks sylvain, that’s a bummer I bet, I at least hope you had a good time on time water, we’ll see how everyone else does this week. There’s a lot of fresh water running out here in the big bend.
