Opening day for scallops

We got out today even with the bad weather. The crowds were not as bad as I expected. It could have been a whole lot worse. Got to the scallop grounds a little after 9:30 and had a boat limit before noon. They are not as big as they were last season but still plentiful and in the same spots as years past. Jellyfish were not a problem today. Only saw a few. Water was a little cloudy due to the rain but not too bad. There was still a few folks out there running on plane in the middle of the crowds so be careful if you go out.
