None avail yet from what i have heard but per Bubba Simmons they will be pricey based on all of the problems down south which will put alot of pressure on the local supply.

Wando Grill is an outdoor catering company and it is hard to quote oyster roasts with the uncertainity.

Will let you know when I hear of a price.

Mt.P Seafood has no oysters, due to the temp, its to early in the year, and he also through in the Gulf problem from Hurricane Katrina.

That is all for now, carry on.

I get oysters from "Shawn" 843.224.5274 - that was the last phone number I had for local Charleston area oysters. Lemme know if you contact him, how much he's asking. I need some Oct 29.

We also use shawn. His prices were great, the oysters were fresh, and he delivers to your door.

shawns number is same. You generally will not beat his price or quality for locals. It is way early to be thinking about local oysters though. These oysters come from awendaw area and will be picked within a day of your order. Better to call in advance.

Here's a tip - best oysters come when the tides are really low - you can get to oysters you can't reach in normal tides, so they've been growing longer. I ate the biggest locals I've ever seen, ever, right after a really, really low tide last year. These things were state fair hogs that hadn't seen daylight before! order for the weekend following that... yummm..

Around columbia they are really hard to find, we managed to find 5 bushels in all of columbia 2 weeks ago.

What is the determining factor(s) for harvest time here in Charleston? I heard end of September/Middle of October. I would think it depends on the temp of the water. What do you guys think?

I will not eat them until the water gets at least in the upper 60's. The colder, the salter, the better in my opinion.

MMMMmmmmmm OYSTERS...... I think That Capt Dons over off Savannah hwy. has good prices. I forget how much but last year after shopping around that was the cheapest place for selects. I don't think after current events they will be as cheap as the have been in the past. There is always Bulls Bay clusters once the water gets cold.

Last years price for a bushel from the McClellanville area at Carolina Seafood (843 887-3713) was $14-$16. I can't imagine it will be too much higher this year. That said, even though it's an "r" month, it been pretty hot and I agree with localdude about water temps being very important.

While you wait for oysters, I hear the shrimp are doing well. If you can stand to spend 1-2 hours heading shrimp, I recommend buying a 50 lb. 'boat run box' (heads on and unsorted) at Carolina Seafood (or anywhere else that will sell you one). The last 4 years we have bought at least one box and the price ranged from $100-$150 per box. A 50 lb. box gives you 32-35 lbs. of headed shrimp, so it comes out to $2.86-$4.69 per pound.

Carolina Seafood. On Oak Street-Mville. 9/20--$110 for 50 lbs of 21-25 heads-on off the boat.

No beer drinking, no southern boy companionship. But, ~30 lbs of good fresh shrimps, probably about 16 or so lbs of good chum.

Sounds pretty good to me.
