Steinhatchee - Scallop madness!

I know this isn't in our region, but this is great fun and if you haven't gone scalloping- GO!


Some friends of ours have a place in Steinhatchee Landing (which is an awesome spot- and invited us up for some fishing and scalloping. We got there Friday night after dark and got ready for fishing the next morning. We caught one short (spot-less) redfish and missed a few others. Came back in for lunch and a recharge and picked up a few more people and headed to the scallop spot and were on them almost immediately. I wasn't keeping track of time but we quickly had our 10 gallon limit and headed home.

Sunday we went out again and found the same thing- lots and lots of scallops. We had our limit in a few hours and came back in to get headed back home.

    looks like everyone had fun....

    If I still had young'uns I'd do, it is easier and cheaper to buy a lb of them already cleaned.
    There are many roads to travel
    Many things to do.

    Nice job, DeHaven! Thanks for the report, I am headed there in a few weeks with the family for our first trip to Steinhatchee. Hope we have the same results.

    I went scalloping in Crystal River for the first time last year. It is some of the most fun on the water I've ever had. It is just a total zen kind of activity. I love it. Wish I could go this year...
