Dad's lobster.JPG


Took my pop lobster fishing last night, only his second time pulling hoops. Hooped the Long Beach area from 5 pm until about 10:30. The crawl started out kinda slow, but we were getting lots of shorts and a few keepers. It started to pick up around 9 pm, and we finished with double limits and threw back two more from the final nets. Flat calm conditions, little or no wind, one sea dog but he didn't cause too much trouble. Bait was various carcasses from recent trips - goats, rockfish, sand bass, some macks. Depth was 40 feet.

Even at 75, dad is still freaking old school country strong. Farm boy from Texas, he insisted on doing most of the pulling while I drove and dialed in the spots. Here's pop with the toad of the night - 8 lbs
