Thank goodness! It is rough enough for the baymen trying to dig a living out there.

This isn't the time of year to be harvesting, anyway!

September is the earliest it should be done.

You're not going to find a lot of meat in most of the oysters and mussels you harvest now, so let it go.

October & November are your best bets. Steamed in white wine, garlic and onions, served with a side of fries with mayonnaise and a bottle of Orval served at 55F.

Pure heaven.

Anybody who eats raw shellfish now will get sick. The rain causes road run off to flow into the bays.

Maybe if I hadn't broken so many laws and grown my oysters at Scudder Beach by the sewage outflow the DEC wouldn't have even started testing for this. Anyway, I was unaffected because I am in state waters down west now, so I really don't care.
