    Lobster season coming up- questions about giving them away

    So, if I purchase local lobster, can I store them as just tails, or do they have to be whole? What if I give a neighbor some and they cut them in half? If someone gives me a couple, and it does not exceed me possessing 7, do I document them on my report card? How, there are no codes for this...

    Which is better for fishing prospects, patties full of bait or empty?

    Was all over the 302 and 9 yesterday, found 25+ patties, almost all jugged with bait. The question was, empty patties shows all the bait was eaten, (eaters came and went, maybe hungrier now) and full patties meant there were not eaters around, feasting on the easy meals, full from other food...

    Any thoughts what marine animal this is/was? I noticed the "foot" on the left, so maybe a large (huge) bipod/clam of some type, I also see the jet vents on the right. I am certain someone will have the answer. Found in Mission Bay, Fiesta island.
