    California Spiny Lobster Season Is Almost Here!

    The air has that “it’s getting Winter time” feel and everyone knows what that means!

    It’s almost lobster season!

    This Saturday morning at midnight, every Tom, Dick and Harry with a SCUBA tank or hoop net will be in the water looking for what is left of the California Spiny lobster.

    The waiting for midnight, the two dives in crowded boat-to-boat waters, the beer and party on the way back, the stop at the Monster Lobster contest at Dive N Surf – more of a tradition than anything else, I will be among them.

    Remember, you need a valid California fishing license, ocean enhancement stamp and a lobster report card to hunt for lobsters.

    California Fishing Licences can be bought online here.

    I am concerned about this season, however.

    For the last several months I have been actively looking for lobsters on my almost weekly day time dives; lobsters usually hide in between rocks or inside reefs during the day, and I can usually spot them preseason.

    Not this year.

    Word has it, the marine preserves and remote Channel Islands are still teaming with spiny lobsters, but I haven’t spotted more than a few along Palos Verdes.

    Unless these creatures are hidding well, this season is going to be really, really tough.

    Let’s liberate as many legal lobsters as we can this season!

    Best of luck to all the lobster hunters!

    1. Hey Jeff:
      Best of luck (although you probably don’t need it)and happy hunting this season.
