    Nice post ED, rather rigorous activity for "mature" snorkelers! Was wondering your thoughts on this- Since you have recent, comparative experience = Would you think it wiser to run a 5 k event or SCALLOP 1st? Always important to know opening day of scallop season...Keaton Beach/Steinhatchee(Taylor county) happens to be 1st(June 15). There are even come Florida West coast counties with ZERO seasons due to surveyed low #'s. My county CITRUS ranks at/near the TOP for recreational scalloping(July 1) Taylor County has awesome Gulf fishing including JUMBO Speckled trout, What tide-phase did you "exercise"?

    Dude, I bet you was whooped when you got back home. 3 hours there, swimming, then three hours home. That is a long day.

    So let me guess….. someone else cleaned the scallops.

    up2, I'm not a tide guy, but at some point we supposably had a slack tide at high tide, or something like that.

    And yep, Bob D took 3 hours to clean'em he says.

    Hard to beat a fresh seafood supper. Looks like the scalloping adventure was a real success.

    The rationale is this= typically Low-tide phase is less arduous than high-tide because of the depth. Let's say the scallops are in 4-5 fow @ LT[no need to tread water], now, conversely same area @HT is 6- 8 fow you HAVE to tread water before you dive down to pick em up! Strategy is to pick your time of day @ 2-3 hrs. prior to low tide(it changes roughly about 1 hour later each day.) Strangely though, some folks are extremely buoyant, making it easy-peasy to stay afloat, but needing to wear weighted belts to submerge.Scalloping with Bob D...
