Key West Pandemic Lobster Hoarding

This was my first Lobster trip this season.  With only three days remaining in the season and the winds ramping back up, I figured it would be a good time to head out to see what condition the Lobster stocks were in.  I hit six islands and found large colonies in two of them.  Most were all teenagers in the 2 1/2" to 2 3/4" carapace size, the jumbos for next year.  Compared to last year's final day where I had to scrounge pretty hard to find a couple, the two colonies were fairly jam packed and I felt comfortable to harvest a few from each spot to make a limit.  This also helped in fulfilling my protein needs for the next couple of days and prolong my two week stretch of staying out of the petri dish grocery stores.  Get em while you can.
