I put in at anclote and it was super easy going out. About 7:15 am and not crowded at all. Coming in around 3 pm there was a nasty current. Was a little tough getting off the fender but luckily the current wasn't bad close to the trailer.
Excellent. Thanks for the info.

I’m out in that area on the regular.

my preference is outside of anclote around mid island.

usually with two other Yamaha. 2012 limited flying FSU flag. 2018 sx flying American flag. 2018 ar no flag.

where’s the fellow that claims to have the loudest system without the arch? I’ve walked from mid island to north island a few dozen times and never found him.

also miss vicky’s still open. Likes if you call ahead these days.

I don’t fish from my boat. “Strict no blood policy,” is what I say every time a fishing guy asks about fishing on my boat. As a bonus it covers bringing glass on the boat, and can be used when someone is just about to do something stupid that could cause bodily injury. So hopefully it keeps the mood light and funny while making an important point.

fishing guy really never believes me when I tell him I don’t fish off my boat. It’s been kind of humorous.

This seems to be the thread locals hang out in so...

Any of you crush scalloping the last few seasons?

I try to walk a fine line between talking about how awesome it’s been and not wanting to promote it to the masses.

Year three in the books and the assholes are starting to catch on.

Although it could be that the hot spot was a bit further north this season. Also I was in slightly deeper water so that just means more boats, larger boats, are in the area.

Easy to catch your limit.

Use a proper bay scallop knife, and shop vac for cleaning.

Went scalloping in both steinhatchee and pasco county this year. Great family activity.

Did you throw them back in? Heard there's a 2 year ban due to red tide.
to my knowledge you’re still not allowed to keep anything but sharks.

even without those restrictions. As far as the snook arhat day went one was too big a few were too small and maybe just one would have been just right.

more... four dudes fishing, each caught the trifecta, had three on at one time, snook red red. it was a weekend but a poor weather day so no pleasure boaters. Pretty extreme tides, fished nothing but green backs.
