    We met at 7:40 AM.

    Nobody except the security guards, who were guarding the movie set, were there.

    A few fishermen showed up as we were gearing up.

    We went off the cove.

    We had an experimental lobster hunting kit with us to study whether or not some urban legends about lobster hunting are true.

    If we were to catch a lobster using this kit, we would turn it lose and record our findings.

    We were determined to find the abandoned lobster trap.

    We ran across a few lobsters backed in to some crevices, but Nick had lost the peanut butter.

    What we were supposed to do with it, we weren’t sure.

    We concentrated our lobstering efforts in 35-40 feet of water slightly East off of Pigeon Shit cave.

    Nick came across a lobster and grabbed it freehand!

    It was legal size!

    Nick’s first legally caught lobster!

    The “second kelp bed” has long since disappeared.

    But, we did run across the lobster trap!

    It has become a corroded pile of rusted wire; it’s not usable.

    We exited with no problem; fins off, walked ashore.
