Went hooping last night catalina island. Really really calm seas with mild chilly winds. Was so calm we decided to try the backside of the island 25-40ft. Was spooky for awhile until we got familiar with the area. Be careful out there lots of hidden rocks come out of nowhere bwhahah. Drop traps around 1830 and picked up traps 1930. The crawl happened early then died around 2000. Backside got couple of monsters. Didn't get limits this time but the bugs were way bigger at the backside. Water was 71 degrees.

less bugs on backside - surprised you didn't run over a commercial trap they are every 10 feet across the entire backside.

commercial traps crush the lobster on the backside but the bigger ones can't fit in their traps so they are around for sure.
