Ok Kids Pop quiz…. Here is some helpful information about Lobstering this mini season that may help you, keep you alive and out of jail….
I have been in the diving industry since 1978 when I got certified. My parents treated me like a slave to catch lobster here in the Keys since I was 12 (1980) I have seen the changes to the reefs and areas I used to lobster. People are not careful…. In my career as a captain (since 1986) and time in the Coast Guard I have seen what can happen when dive flags are not used or misused.. This lobster mini season can be fun. So enjoy and don’t be STUPID..
OK here we go…
Whats the dumbest thing you can do right before you get in the water to dive for lobsters here in Key West?
