Hey guys looking for advice on which is a better choice to take scalloping this year. Have an older 17.8 and a 1754 prodigy with a surface drive. Obviously both will beat the shit out of you in a chop that’s unavoidable! I guess my real question is are the creeks off the main inlet navigable with a flats boat to avoid the rocks or should the metal hull be used to avoid the main boat traffic? My goal would be to go as far as I could out the inlet unless it’s dead calm and ideal conditions or shoot off the main channel and head to the grounds. Any input is welcomed!

During scallop season the creeks are really not super productive anyway so I'd bring the flats boat. Then if you want to fish a creek you can always trim up and idle or troll in and be careful on any low tides. To the north of the river there's a shell bar pretty far out offshore so be careful, it's marked on every chart tho.
