    ONE BIG MOFO BUG

    I'm surprised it didn't sink your boat?
  134. plambeck

    I have officially got the Bug

    Went out last night, saturday, out of Dana Point again, only managed 5 legals for our efforts. The crawl was really weird. They were crawling like crazy for an hour after sunset, pulling nets with 5 0r 6 bugs wasn't uncommmon. Then it shut off super early, about 8:30, called it a night at 10...

    I have officially got the Bug

    Went out tuesday night 10-26 out of Dana Point. Found the right spot and dropped the nets before sunset. I didn't have high hopes since the moon was still pretty full. Little did I know the moon wouldn't come out until about 9 or so. The crawl was early and steady untill the moon ruined...

    Finally got a big one! Dana 10-22-10

    Awesome First time Lobster Fishing

    Where did you guys launch from?
  142. plambeck

    Lobster Love

    We used salmon heads and macks... I like the salmon heads because you dont have to rebait as often. I put two heads in each cage and then fill the empty space with macks. You can tell if anything has been in your net by looking at the eyes. They usually eat the eyes first. Hope that helps.

    Lobster Love

    Went out last night out of Dana Point with 9 hoops and some fresh bait. Found the right spot and dropped before sunset. Steady pick on the bugs with two larger ones that wanted to crawl. They stopped crawling right at high tide and we decided to call it a night with 12 legals. All were big...

    Is it Legal to use an Infrared Camera

    Thanks for the info, I was waiting to use it before I knew it was legal, good thing. I saw some guy selling deep nets like that on craigslist, thats how I got the idea. Is there a certain depth regulation because some of my nets are stretched out and much deeper than others.

    Is it Legal to use an Infrared Camera

    Is there any regulation on how deep the hoop nets can be? Is it legal to combine two nets to make one super deep net?? Im not talking about the depth you set them at to clarify.
