Starting getting your lobster gear ready, ladies and gentlemen! On the 25th, divers and fellow lobster aficionados will be taking a splash in the water to participate in South Florida’s annual two-lobster mini-season. The event begins at the stroke of midnight and will continue until midnight on the 26th, followed by the regular recreational and commercial season which kicks off August 6th.
Florida is home to a trio of lobster varieties, but most fishermen tend to go for the Florida spiny lobster, which also goes by the name of the Caribbean spiny lobster. This lobster is typically found in the Atlantic Ocean’s tropical and subtropical waters as well as in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. It is generally caught during the evening as lobsters prefer to spend the daylight hours in the protection of their dens as a means of avoiding predators.
There are a few rules to be aware of if you’re planning on participating in the two-day sport lobster season. For example, their carapace must meet a certain minimum length and it is prohibited to take any females that are bearing eggs. You can read all of the rules at the following link: http://myfwc.com/fishing/
