OK, I have just talked to the main office in Sacramento to make sure we all have the correct information, Diving for Spiney Lobster is allowed in the 2012-2013 lobster recreational fishing season.

Ok I am confused. My buddy At the DGF told me the season was cancelled do to the recent state sponsored introduction of Maine lobsters, which needed at least a year to gain a established population that could with stand the pressure of free divers and scuba divers.

You must have been talking to a PETA member undercover as a DFG agent.

where did the size limit change and pole spear info come from? 99% sure you cannot spear any crustations in about 48 of the 50 states! I will continue to abide by the regulations posted in the 2012-2013 fishing regulations i have until DFG releases an adendum to them! Good luck and remember its about 400$ per short lobster if you keep it and its not the right info. plus all your gear will be taken by DFG. Seen this off the San Clemente pier last year!

Its only closed to SCUBA divers, freedivers can still take them and even use a pole spear this year. Min size has been reduced from 3.25" to 2.75".
Where is this info posted? I have never seen a 2.75" lobster guage. If thats the case I will limit everynite!!!!!!

I just spoke with Captain Calente at the DGF. He said that the season is open, but all Maine Lobsters must be released no matter the size. He said feel free to call his office any time for clarification the new regs.757-622-7382
