    Hey @BobDanger I'm on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay (Piankatank River) and an amateur oyster farmer.  Selling is too complicated with Va Dept of Health so I prefer to just give them away.  Virginia oysters are the bomb! Perfect growing conditions and a variety of salinity to please any palate.

    Growing up in Florida I ate a lot of oysters but nothing compares with chincoteague salt oysters. 

    Its really great that that you are oyster farming...not only are they great to eat but most important they are the life saver for the bay.

    Thank you.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Were you fishing for rock?  Y'all seem to keep the big ones on your side of the bay.
