So i have been trying to figure the lobster crawl out and been hearing after the rain is best to go. Anyone headed out today even in the wind ? Or is it not worth the wind

    Last season I made it a point to Hoop the big storms. I sat thru big rain and winds, over and over, but did not see any big kill days. maybe it was just me, maybe I was too early, or should have waited a day for the move. I was concerned about electricity zapping me, but there was plenty of taller structures around, and I stayed off the radio. I do think the rain will shake up the mix, perhaps some of the hot hands will post the victories soon. I think it is always "worth it!". I ain't getting any sitting here!

    I’m out there tonight🦞
    What’s the play big bay, mission, Oceanside ? I might hit Oceanside with less wind but the last time i went i didn’t even pull a short. I have only had success in the big bay but i run a 14 foot john boat so could be dicey with the wind.

    I have always heard the same... braved the storm yesterday -- launched from Davies, got battered making across the channel to Nacho's for bait... greeted with a 'im closed, go away'... so much for 24/7 -- and i had no backup bait plan...

    You guys not worried about the 50,000 gallon sewage spill that closed 7 miles of Long beach beaches? I mean I am all for lobstering and fishing but if I missed something let me know haha.

    umm - everyone is aware of what local lobster eat - right...

    Top or Bottom - you missed it by a mile - lobster crawl out when salinity reach a level they don't like so they march out from inner harbors.

    Stay home - it's not good anyway - cough-cough

    Here is Sandyego after it rains, the raw sewage from mexico pours directly into the ocean and migrates north. I believe hundreds of thousands of gallons yearly.IB is closed at least a third of the year from raw sewage pollution from mexico.

    WHAT?? You don't like Mexican food? Lobsters are just going for some recycled Mexican food, gives them that spicy taste.

    The rain/run off stirs up the bottom which gets more food stirred up so they are out to get in on it. Get out of the bay and hit some spots near the surf and you will get the same effect. Nothing wrong looking for an edge, everyone does, but sooner or later you will learn it isn't worth the added risk or putting up with the miserable conditions, find a good location and it will produce just as well in good conditions as miserable ones.

    It's amazing how things like Lobster and Catfish can eat the most disgusting shit and still taste good... I probably taste great, I have eaten a lot of disgusting things that tasted good, then I quit drinking and going to dark bars
