    you all need fishing licenses, lobster report cards, everyone needs a gauge, 10 hoops max per boat, 5 nets max if fishing solo, fish the tides and use macs as bait

    does that 36' have a dinghy? I like to pull hoops from the dinghy. 36' is getting to be on the fringe of too big to weave around hoop net ropes.

    I suggest you spend a little time on the dfg website and read the regs, then do some searching on here for general info. As far as LOCATION, good luck with that one.

    If fishing from shore, there is a two hoop limit per person. The seven(lobster) limit means ownership of seven at a time. If you have seven in the fridge, you can not go out and catch seven more.

    I agree you are more likely to run over your nets with a 36'. I love hooping from the dinghy it's way easier to quietly get on top of the nets and pull straight up then attempt to grab the nets with a boat pole.

    Go to court and plead newbie status. Maybe the judge will discount the fine.

    when you go to court make sure you bring an extra pair of shorts and some Vaseline with you.

    an extra pair of shorts because when you hear what the the fine is your gonna shit. and the Vaseline because your going to get fucked and 2' and dry hurts.

    this is why you don't pay the fine in the court room... they want to give you enough time to clean up before the fucking
