Guided Scallop Fishing Trips

St. Joe Bay is famous for its rich beds of this tasty bi-valve, and in the past, scallop populations have dimished. However, over the past few years efforts to replinish the fishery have been very successful.

This year, scallop season will be open August 16 through September 24. You can get more information at

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 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.
