Gearing up for LOBSTER SEASON!!! Scallop season initial reports!

With Sportman season getting ready to start July 26 and 27th of 2023 ; we are in full blown summer mode. The 2 day season is set to start on the last Wed and Thur of this month. There have been several reports of the tasty crusteaseans in the shallow waters off of Monroe county. Make sure to check local laws at myfwc.com to know what you can and cannot do. The scallop season has started off slow; However there are alot of quarter size scallops this year. If you are going please leave the small scallops alone. The meat you get from them isn't worth the harvest. If you can wait a month or so; These creatures will grow to a harvestable size. The visibility is starting to deteriorate out in the gulf thanks to the warm temps and rain . We are seeing the vis in 40 ft at 5-15 and at 100ft it is 10-0 foot. Yes that is 0 ft depending on what direction you run. At least with the warm water we don't mind the vis as much. Looking forward to this month ahead and making sure everyone is ready for the trip South.
