“The numbers seemed to be really good this year and we did come very close to getting our limit in just a few hours,” she said.

Stokes said that her children, ages 7 and 11, have begun scalloping as well and enjoyed experiencing the sea life that the Bay has to offer.

“We are a family that loves the outdoors and I love that it is something our kids can participate in,” said Stokes. “There is just something about going out there and snorkeling for a couple of hours and bringing home dinner for that night.

“Seafood doesn't get any fresher than that!”

St. Joseph Bay and Black’s Island were reported to yield good results this year.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which measures the number of scallops in 600 square meter areas, St. Joseph Bay is up 23 to last year’s 10.9 per station.

A significant increase, but nowhere near the 154.8 scallops registered in 2011.
