Carl, you can either launch at the HB ramp right there in "downtown" HB, and take the HB channel out, or you can go up to 50, hang a left off 19, and go to the end, 50 deadends at Bayport Ramp, where most put in...

One key thing that you absolutely have to remember up there is stay in the channel no matter what, there are so many rocks up there that you'll loose you're motor guaranteed.

No brainer there, Josh. But there are always those, every year, that think they are "smart", and end up on the wrong end of a tow rope, lower unit in the graveyard...

Yep. Rocks and LU's don't make good dance partners. Gets worse as you go further north. If any of you guys have ever been out of Crystal River, the channel extends for miles out of the mouth of the river...and you better goddam well stay in it. Bigass boulders up there... sSc_eek

So anyone coming up for the first time, just take it easy and be mindful of the channel...and others around you... :605_thumbs_up:

Ugh. Definitely not thinking I want to go up on a weekend then. I don't go out on weekends much. There are way too many people, and by having week days off, I get to avoid all of them.

During scallop season there will be many people regardless of the day, besides more people out gives you better ideas of an area to catch them by seeing what depths have more people.

We had a very nice day scalloping Saturday. The scallops seem to be a tad thinner than last year but we were able to get our limit. We just had to move around a few times to find a good spot. I have to say there were a TON of boats out there. We were almost to the Bayport ramp at 7:30 when Fernando informed me the lot was already full. We diverted to Hernando beach to find the ramp was wide open with no waiting. The seas were flat calm.

Carl just keep the boat between those green and red things that stick out of the water every so many feet and you'll be just fine :605_thumbs_up: :605_thumbs_up:
