I got a warm whelk-come to Sanibel this morning. This lovely lightning whelk was in the water near shore at low tide at Blind Pass on Sanibel. Unfortunately, as you can see, it was occupied by a critter, so I had to put it gently back in the water. As you know, it’s against the law to keep live shells in Lee County. Florida law states that you can keep live shells in every other county IF you have an offshore saltwater fishing license.
Do you keep live shells where you are? Yes, or no, I hope you can go to shell soon!
