MY fishing partner and I had dropped the Lobster for month while we enjoyed our chasing Halibut and Bonito, both trips very productive. I'm usually sleeping with the Lobster the day before, kind of a intro to taking up residence in one side or another of my 80 gallon split bait tank. This day though we didn't drop our nets until 3PM, and we had no idea what was left after the carnage slowed down a month ago. In the spot that we hammered them opening week we managed 7 legals and 16 shorts ,in 3 sets of 10 pulls, from 715 PM until 845 PM. Had some divers sneak up on my nets, but I put the kibosh on that lickity-split.

We decided to try another spot before heading in the harbor.
From 930 PM until 1115 PM, 3 sets of 10 pulls again we manage 4 more legals and 16 more shorts.
We felt good with the 11 and headed in.
A month away and the results told me everything I needed to know about where to look next.
All Lobster caught in 31 feet of water.
The bait in the cages was 80% sardines and 20% mackerel.
Here's the Lobsters, and the beautiful sunset we had to endure, all while sipping our favorite beverages (non-alcoholic) and listening to LS 'Free Bird' and PF 'Comfortably Numb' back-to-back, nothing could drag us away.
The weather was EPIC!
The company was priceless!

Enjoy and be Safe! John.

How do you get them to hold still for a picture?
The following morning they seemed to be somewhat lethargic, just told'em to stay put and they stayed put.
