Everybody figured out that many reports create lobster hype that encourages more hooping, more newbs, more regulations/laws.
That is actually pretty funny...we were all newbies once,and I doubt that by posting a report,it will lead to a newbie running down and buying 500 bucks in gear,then spend countless hours to catch a few lobster,when it is obvious that they are a very healthy population from 5ft to at least 175ft deep....No one ever wanted to show me anything,and about 8 years ago,but I learned,and would never discourage any newbie from trying.We have ate lobster 4 nights in a row,and are done for a while,so I hope others go get em instead of the comercial guys.

So have you posted your report with details or even numbers on where you caught them ? After all the internet couldnt possibly be a reason its a zoo now and the fishing is not improving.

Of course I will not give anyone exact spots,but I do tell everyone that I fish the bay 95 % of the time,and the other 5% off the green tanks...I also tell them that where you can catch a bass,lobster will be there.no rocket science there.I have at least 8 spots in the bay that produce,and all of them are spots where I rarely see other boats.If someone wants to put the time and effort in to be on the water,then by all means,go for it.I think that the size limit will keep the population alive for many years to come.I fished a spot saturday that gave us 196 lobster over the last 3 years,and it still gave up 12 on saturday,that averaged 3 lbs apiece.I think the population is healthy.

    1. This is a site for fishing reports - including lobsters
    2. I have never seen a post with exact area or GPS numbers
    3. It's the commercial guys that get most of the bugs.
    4. It seems some people like to get info but never give any out
    5. EVERYONE was a newb at first
    6. No one owns the ocean
    7. Have fun and enjoy your catch

    That is all.

    I post and share, if we don't keep people interested the products will taper off and you will be left to making your own.

    That is correct but the support and all associated products were not

    Improvements on the lay flat type hoop to a conical style wasn't

    The memories kids are getting with their dads who wouldn't have known anything about hooping wouldn't be happening.. Just saying

    Funny I find myself standing by your side on this one Brian, but I couldn't agree more. Something to be said about people that blatantly take the design of another product, make it their own, and pretend like nothing happened. Makes me sick!
