Florida Lobstering
Finding Florida Lobsters
Finding lobsters can be tricky unless you know what your looking for. Here is an example of some coral that you might find some lobsters hiding under. At first glance you may not see one, but once you get down there and inspect, there they are.


Here is another great example of coral that will typically have a lot of lobsters under it. Often you can see the lobster's antennas from the surface, but it's always a good idea to get down there and check even if you don't see any at first glance. Recently we pulled up to one of our gps locations only to find that another boat was sitting right on top of our spot. We knew there were a bunch of lobsters there because we had inspected the spot the day before, and were unable to catch them because the season had not started. Since we had seen so many the day before, we decided to wait until they left the spot and check for our selves. Sure enough, the spot was still packed with lobster. The other group just hadn't taken the time to really get down there and look for the hidden ones.
