Steinhatchee Scalloping

Florida Sportsman member: DeHeaven We caught one short 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.

Diving How-To


Dive in for Scallops

News Flash! The 2015 bay scallop season is upon us. Ports along Florida’s Big Bend from the Pasco/Hernando county line north to the Mexico Beach Canal are expecting a record “crop” and are prepared for a very busy couple of months. This year’s season began on June 27 and ends on September 24, giving everyone plenty of time to scoop up some of these cherished critters.

The Snet

Combining the security of a snare with the simplicity of a net, the Snet offers the simplest way to catch – and keep – your lobster. The lobster swims backwards and almost captures itself – just pull the black grip and it’s secured. You “Snet ‘em and Forget ‘em“!
