Annual Boy Scout Scalloping Trip

Postby MudDucker » August 12th, 2018, 5:10 am

Since we found few scallops, this is more of a report on water conditions. Went out of Steinhatchee and ran north. Ran all the way to Piney Point and then out into a small bar where I found scallops 3 weekends ago. No Tango. The water from Steinhatchee is nearly black. The water in close is tea colored and in the outer area, there was so much stuff in the turbid waters that you couldn't see bottom more than 6" from it. Watched folks fishing and didn't see anything happening. Biologist at the ramp said it was a slow day all around. On well, the scouts had fun swimming and cutting up.
Its a wonderful day in the neighborhood!

Don't worry about the scallop success or lack thereof. We used to take our troop to Spring Creek just to let them to let them swim with the wildlife. The kids still talk about it even though we never had much fishing success.

PA, two guys did the same for me and my buds and I've never forgotten. It gets harder to get everything ready, but the thought that these kids might not otherwise see what life is like on the Gulf keeps me moving!
Its a wonderful day in the neighborhood!
