Years ago, the State of Florida created a short season that allows recreational fishermen to catch lobster before the commercial season begins. In Key West, the limit is 6 per person, per day. So, before the lobstermen drop their traps, YOU can get a jump on them by heading out early and grabbing a few for yourself.
Can you see yourself?
This is what you will need:
- Mask, fins, snorkel (or your dive gear)
- Tickle sticks with measurer attached
- Catch bag
Make sure you measure!
Always wear a glove!
If you get lucky, you will get your bag limit and have a lot of fun in the process.
If you get really lucky you might see one of these (but I never have and I've never known anyone else who has either!)
Wouldn't you LOVE to get one this big?
A word of advice - always review the rules and regulations with Florida Fish & Wildlife .
Have fun, be safe and don't forget to wear "Reef Safe" Sunscreen!
