    Now’s the time to go on the Island Diver with the Divevets and check out their hunting spots.

    The boat was filled with seven divers and Captain Alec.

    We took the short trip over to their secret spot and dropped anchor in about 50 feet.

    The divers marveled at my combination of ancient, old and cheap equipment.

    Bob told me, “If this stuff falls apart underwater, it’s because it’s cheap.”

    “Yeah, I know.”

    I was second or third off the boat.

    Dan advised me to “go towards shore.”

    I submerged and hit bottom at about 50 feet.

    I trolled for a little bit and within a couple of minutes I had grabbed a nice sized lobster.

    I never quite headed towards shore as Dan had suggested.

    I sort of got tangled and thrown off course weaving through and freeing myself in the thick kelp.

    I never got shallower than 35 feet.

    I never saw another lobster during this dive.

    I surfaced to get my bearings.

    I was about 100 yards from the boat and down to 600 psi.

    I swam shallow, just beneath the kelp almost all the way to the boat.

    I was the first one back.

    A new diver, Rafael, was the second one back.

    He had run out of air and made it back to the boat empty handed.

    Apparently, he didn’t realize how much air you can go through hunting for bugs.

    A few divers caught a few bugs.
