DFG has been very aggressive enforcing lobster regs, you will get a ticket if you tail the lobsters, thus if you vaccupack consider wrapping the heads on aluminum foil so they dont poke through. They were searching boats last year that had no fishing equipment or hoop nets on board that were sitting on moorings at catalina. They were also writing tickets for lobsters that were tailed even if you informed them you were going to consume them. If you didn't have water boiling you were considered a violator (that means they did not think the law allowed you to marinate, refrigerate, and BBQ without the heads in tact. The ticket is expensive, I have seen them personally, and I have had conversations with multiple friends in Cherry Cove that DFG attempted to board without probable cause. I respect the DFG, and I respect law enforcement, and I know they have a large responsibility, but I do know that last year they crossed the line on several occasions. I cannot speak for 2019/2020 season. Chalk it up to newbies or a rough day, but know they can and most likely will write you for any borderline infraction as they take the lobster fishery Very seriously.
