Guided Scallop Fishing Trips
St. Joe Bay is famous for its rich beds of this tasty bi-valve, but the scallop population has continued to decline in recent years, and restoration measures are underway by FWC to replenish the fishery.
Last year, scallop season in Gulf County/St. Joseph Bay was open to harvest for 16 days on September 23 through October 8. This year, scallop season will be open August 17 through September 30.
Florida Fish and Wildlife will set the 2019 season later this year while hoping to standardize the season in 2020 and later years. You can get more information at myFWC.com
Happy Ours can equip your party with all the equipment you need to harvest scallops except the fishing license which you can purchase on-line at http://www.myfwc.com/license/recreational/saltwater-fishing/ or at a local bait and tackle store. We are happy to show first-timers how to shuck these tasty morsels but you will need a spoon, gloves, container and ice to clean your catch.
