You are right, you don't need a permit to catch scallops. The scallop season (what few are left)opens usually around the first or second week of October. Recreational folks can keep one peck of scallops per day, while the commercial boys can keep 10 bushels per person per day. No license/permit required... Again, nobody for the last five years have caught much. I went a few times this fall near Sag Harbor and got enough for dinner. Also got a decent amount of hermits as well (no limits are enforced on hermits). Blackfish love'em, but when tog are hungry, they'll take a greenie just as well. Blackfishing on the east end was just fantastic from mid-November to mid-December last season...
