Christmas bay is so shallow it is pretty much dredge proof and they can't do much damage to the reef "cooning" oysters by hand. Speaking from experience it is really, really hard to coon 10 sacks in a day. I would be surprised if they are averaging 8 sacks per person and most boats seem to have 2 maybe 3 people each.

Yea they were all over Arcadia and in Drum getting em by hand. All the boats had probably 30+ sacks coming into the launch.

Bought a 90 ish lb sack for $40 fresh off the boat.

Huge!!!

On a side note the fishing was no better Friday than it was Thursday. (for me anyway) ended up with 2 trout to 18in and 1 nice 16in sand trout.
Water looked way better yesterday than Thursday with trout green water in several places.

TP&W Says Christmas is a Preserve, I wouldn't think it would be open to commercial oystering.

I will start off by saying that I like Capt. Micky and his fishing show.

With that being said over the last 40 or more years few have profited more from our resource than Capt. Micky. Over the decades he and his customers have boxed and iced untold thousands and thousands of pounds of trout and redfish from our bays and he has made a very comfortable living doing so. Not so much different from any commercial fisherman. He gets paid to catch fish.

So I think there is a little hypocrisy going on for Capt. Micky to accuse anyone of "raping" anything if he even in fact said that. Let alone a handful of guys harvesting oysters the exact same way man has been doing it in our bays for thousands of years. Picking them up by hand...

The same oysters we all love to eat on the half shell or hot off the grill.

I did not see anyone west of the line in closed waters. Most boats are working the old intracoastal and arcadia reef

Glad you are a fan of Capt. Mickey. He never used the term or accused anybody of raping anything. Those are Thinshavings comments. He acknowledged the fact that, he himself has harvested his own oysters by hand.

The context of the conversation, mainly with Capt. James Plaag was the surprise of seeing boats there. Plaag even questioned the christmas Bay thing as in his 30 years he has never seen it and thought it was a restricted area.

Listen for yourself, in the link below are the podcasts, scroll down to Friday, February 24th. In hour one at 13:45 he discusses it with Capt. Tommy Alexander. Then in hour two at 3:41 he discusses it with Capt. Plaag.

Hence me using the term "if he in fact said that". I caught the tail end of the conversation with Plaag on live radio and James seemed to be pretty fair with his comments.
