    Yes I have been a few times, it is a fun day and supposedly the scallops are a little better than last year. Do you know where you are going and what the laws are?

    I went to Steinhatchee last year and you can get 10 gallons per vessel and need a fishing licence. I'll be in Tampa all next week and would like to go some where a little closer. Online they say Homosassa is a good place to go but i've never been there. If anyone else wants to go its always better to have more than one ski.

    10 gallons per vessels is the limit if you have a lot of people on a boat I believe. I think is is 3 gallons per person and something like a pint of cleaned per person of cleaned mussels. Homasassa is usually fine, I have been told the scallops were better this year. Last year the scallops were very scarce up there. Just head out and look for all the boats.

    I took the boat out 3 - 4 weeks ago and we limited out (1 pint shucked per person) in about 40 minutes! We went out of Weeki Wachee area. It was a good time and cooked them up that night.

    Check out my video, I made it a few weeks ago. We have more scallops here than ever. I can get my limit in 20 minutes every time. They are everywhere.
