Bay Scallop Season
June 27, 2015 - September 24, 2015
Season opens the Saturday before July 1 unless July 1 falls on a Saturday, then the opening date would be July 1. Recreational harvesters need a Florida saltwater fishing license to harvest bay scallops, even when scalloping from shore. Bay scallops may only be harvested in state waters from the Pasco-Hernando County line (near Aripeka – latitude 28 degrees, 26.016 minutes North) to the west bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County (longitude 85 degrees, 25.84 minutes West).
