75.5 Mini Season

Day 1 started out slow got to our first two spots to find boats already there. Moved to our third spot and were met by an FWC officer who wanted to see our lobster and permits. told him we were just on way to our spot and he gave us the twice over for the next hour. Good thing we were staying on our spot I had thrown the anchor. As soon as be got off our boat in the water we went. Very much worth the wait. We limited our with 8 people in the boat in 30 minutes on the bay side only. Was the best season I have seen in the past 8 years. Seems like with all the wind before the season the lobster were on the move. Had some friends drive down from Miami forthe afternoon was able to get them on the same spot and they picked away at them. Able to get 12 more for them....

So far other reports were good better than Past years with wind and weather. A lot more boats too...heard of some good picking at the channel 2 bridge at slack tide

    Thanks for the report. Down here around Cudjoe it seemed that there were less boats and people were less frantic.

    We dove out back the first day with decent vis and little current. The second day we were out front and the water was cloudy with limited visibility so you had to really work at it.

    Best part was that, front and back, the lobsters were consistently large. We only had one short in the two days.
