Scallop Fishing

Experience Scallop Fishing

Known for their delicate nature and juicy taste, scallops are a prized menu item for several restaurants. Scallops are certainly a decadent and luxurious item that many people love. The waters of the Crystal River in Florida are lucky enough to have this delicacy available to fishermen and fisherwomen for a short time during the summer. The team at Pirate Flag Charters and Tours is proud to offer scallop fishing. This delicate and delicious commodity can be harvested in Florida from July 1 through September 24. Due to the short window for scallop fishing, this is a popular and rewarding expedition that many people choose to go on.
