I'm sure many here saw this coming, but no more parties at Shell Key. over+for+Shell+Key+boaters

The new spot is going to be the spoil islands by John's Pass.

I saw that and was disappointed as well.

Those spoil islands are right near where I usually put in, at Bay Pines. Should be interesting.....

Never been there but my first thought is 'What kind of mess is left every weekend after evryone leaves'? Let me explain. Across the river from my dock is a little beach knowm as 'Sandy Bottoms'. A beautiful and popular place for boaters. Problem is that all those beer cans, bottles and trash that people bring are thrown up into the woods with many landing on the beach to float away with the tide. I can only reason that these people don't want to be caught by the Marine Patrol with a boat full of empty beer containers. Does Shell Beach have this same problem

I think they blame more on dogs than alcohol but both are not a problem in my book. There are no beaches in manatee county for dogs except Jewfish key which is a sandbar that is rarely above water..not fair to those of us with dogs.

I saw the zeroforum about this too.
Cant say I ever saw unusual trash out there. I thought it was fairly respected.

"Boaters disagreed, saying drinking alcohol doesn't affect the wildlife."

I would say it may affect the "wild life" though.
