How to catch a scallop

A lot of people don't even know what a scallop looks like, or where it comes from, or how you catch them. A quick trip to the west coast of Florida in search of the elusive scallop paid off. Ok, if it was a survival trip, we would have starved. But it was very cool. Did you know scallops have lots of blue eyes along the edge of their shell? You simply snorkel in the shallows, spot one, grab it before it scoots away, bag it and move on. We all caught some. Dylan won. Thanks to our hosts Donna and Ray and an awesome weekend on the Weeki Wachee River.
