Just back from South Florida for the Opening Of The Annual Lobster Circus

Made a run south down the turnpike yesterday? To be on the water off Miami at Mid-night:cookoo for the opener of the 2011 lobster season? Weather was a little tough, kind of windy with rain all around?
But still managed to bring home a fine meal of bottom dwellers for dinner!:obscene
A lot of driving for a few hours on the water :shrug but came home with a great meal

A look at the Miami Sky Line as we headed out

A few bugs headed back to the dock with us:thumbsup

    Nice! :thumbsup Lobstering is definitely fun, and I usually get a fire coral rub to extend the memory. Tickle stick & net or one of those loop snares?

    If you go out at night., before midnight and stay until after midnight are you allowed two days limit? Just asking....

    That is correct statement Sir You can have a two day bag limit on shore the second night before and after midnight! You cannot possess a two day limit on while on the boat on the water You must bring them back to the ramp or home then go back out for the second limit at least that's how the law is enforced!

    That's how I understood it to be. I was just curious if I was right. This is the same with getting shrimp in the river I believe.

    Nice haul. I've done a little lobster hunting but never at night. I think that would be exciting.
    Keep the drags smoking!

    It’s definitely a circus for sure! Glad you guys did well. The winds during sport lobster sure did keep the number of boaters down we thought. We had a good trip too.
