    My neighbor left about a 1,500 setup there a month or so ago.

    That is a drifting spot for sure - or properly setup above the structure.

    sorry no secret on this one at all....The poles are stacked 10ft high and the only way you would even have a chance of seeing or trying for a lobster while diving is to squeeze inbetween the poles which would be very dangerous and something I would never do.

    I did not see any lobsters on my dive and I didn't even have my lobster card with me,the anchor was all I was targeting on this dive.

    And as for hooping that spot you would lose alot of traps with the way the poles stick out everywhere.

    there was not much current on my dive and Chris was driving the boat and picked me up after the dive but at that depth I did not go very far from where I dropped in the water

    Cool stuff Roger.

    I lost my anchor once on some structure at Catalina a couple years back. Put on the scuba gear and got it back, and also learned a lot about that particular high spot, how to fish it, etc.

    Also learned later that there had been a great white in the area that week.....

    I certainly can vouch for your diving ability as it relates to finding stuff on the ocean floor.
    Still have the SD8 Roger?
    Happy Holidays!

    Hey John yep still got the pole!

    That was a fun dive in which I speared 2 halibut, found your pole and found another lost pole.

    I looked everywhere on Allcoast for my dive report of that day but I could not find it :(

    Here's a pretty good video I found of someone salvaging anchors on Izors.
