Title: Anyone want to share a location?
Post by: JASON HOLLIDAY on July 25, 2009, 04:21:16 PM
       I was just wondering if any of you would like to share a location for free diving for scallops? Unfortunately I have not had the pleasure to pluck a scallop as of yet and I would like to expand my diving to scallops. I understand if no one wants to share info on their spots. Also if your willing to hook up and do some scallop diving pm me or post here... Thanks

Only info I can give is on places that had scallops!  I'm sure there are many more nearby, it's just a matter of finding them.  I found one in the middle of Stillwater north last year, at 25 feet right in the center of the cove where you would expect a dozen people to cruise by every day.

As for places that have an abundance, the only place where I have found one on almost every day I have dove there is Big River, at the Mendocino Headlands.  This is also where I found the abalone with the 5 pearls, so it is a preferred spot for me.  Not many places you can limit on fish, grab abs, grab at least one scallop, and then freedive for dungeoness crabs on the way back in.  It's a stellar spot, so don't tell anyone!!  :-X

I saw everyone discussing the Albion dive, but I have already made plans to dive Salt Point this Saturday.  I will be up there early and then a bunch of friends are driving up to celebrate an anniversary.  I'm planning to bring a BBQ and a Coleman stove, and I'm gong to cook up the abs and fish right there in the parking lot ;)  Nothing better than fresh seafood while you still got a great view of the ocean!
