I opened some mail today from my Dad.
I found a newspaper article about Lobster inside the envelope.
After I read the article I found the same article online.
http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/outdoors/20060304-9999-lz1s4lobster.html

That last paragraph caught my attention . .
There must be another way he can celebrate the end of the season?
IMO, WE DON'T NEED THAT!

Let's mull this over. Last year was great on the lobster (the star of the article alone killed 400!). Last year was his first full-time year targeting lobster. Hmmmmm. Just how many recs up and down the coast hooped rec only areas intensively for lobster over just the last couple of years?

The commercials are accused of fishing a target specie below viable yield, and then moving on to do the same to another specie. It's called "serial depletion." Now come rec only lobster "Tournaments", sort of like the halibut tourneys, multiple tourneys, targeting halibut during the spawn. And halibut are once again a big deal to catch. This year is slower for lobster. Gee, what a surprise. Recs are hitting Catalina nightly instead of local areas. As BobO says, "either we manage our fisheries or someone else will." And could it be that the "Lobster Mania" is related to the difficulty of catching anything else, including rockfish that are shutdown by that "someone else."

I'd really like to get more feedback from others before I call
this guy and give him my feedback. And why is money involved?

RE: Lobster article in Sandy Ego fish wrap.

Lynch him!

Imagine.....Someone who's using lobsters, "Our sport" to promote himself at the fisheries expense.

How dare he have a lobster related contest. Who else would ever do such a thing? Have there ever been a lobster related contest or give-away etc... before????

HHHhhhhmmmmm

I've been taking a break from here and other sites and boy when you come back it's laughable. The petty conflicts, finger pointing, and nitpicking is non-F'n-stop.

Lobsters are about as hard to catch as ants, (and not much smarter)

Anyone who figures out a half decent system can catch them with impunity.

For that reason it seems like every year we've got a new self appointed "King of the Lobster hunters" shooting his mouth off.

Give him a year or two and he'll shut the F up!

When the boats cover his favorite rocks like flys, he'll get a clue.

Thank You for taking a break, it's truly appreciated.

So you support a lobster derby, or you don't support a lobster derby?

greedy over limit ba$tards

i REALLY get upset when i read about that kind of crap....there are limits for a reason, sustainable fishing....400 ain't $hit, there are more caught by some right here on allcoast....the limit is two days worth in possesion,PERIOD......that means you can't go and stock your freezer like i see and hear about so many doing...sure, they say they hold the limits in thier freezer for every member of thier family, extended family, adopted family,and anyone else they can think of....they say they give them away to friends or give them away in contests....sure, it's barely legal ,kinda sorta.....but it all comes down to one thing, greedy ba$tards taking more than thier share and then bragging about it.



edit..i feel better now...i've been wanting to yell that for a long time....every time i see another lobster contest/give away, or a "look at how many lobsters i can catch" post

400 in one season? and the ones in the freezer have to be gone within...what...30 days after the season closes? Not to mention that the ones in the freezer count towards "limits" during the season.

He must be "gifting" a LOT of lobsters to friends and neighbors to stay within the regs. Maybe "gifting" needs to be re-looked at by the DFG?

John, I believe you already know how I feel about any and ALL "KILL" tournaments. Wouldn't lobstering be the easiest and most successful of all tournaments for C&R?

Maybe a letter to the writer of the article to open her eyes?

Dive-n-surf has sponsored the Lobster Mobster on opening night for a lot of years. They are talking about discontinuing it because the last few years have been won by people that didn't look like they could fit into a wetsuit and smelled of dead fish. This was from a Dive-n-surf employee when I weighed in mine this year.

I really had been mulling over responding to you or not.
The more I kept reading that YOU, NOT ME, was labeling / proclaiming
me whatever is what I'm really tired of, and THAT has spawned my
response below.

Most times when YOU type something from your keyboard I JUST
CONSIDER THE SOURCE, even though I really don't know you.

I continue to be amazed at YOU AND OTHERS that proclaim me whatever.
Most times THE POSTER targeting statements and terms at me mean them
in a negative way, at least that's my interpretation.
Most times I take them in a positive and flattering way.
At this point though enough is enough.

You too need to move on with whatever baggage you have with or about me.
Either that or take it offline and discuss it via email or telephone.
Stop compromising this board with your personal comments to me and about me.
I continue to be amazed at how I in your words created a monster.
That in and of itself is very flattering, and I don't deserve it nor do I want it.
Amazing how one person (ME), in your words, can single handedly impact the lobster population as a whole.

That said . . please learn to police yourself and your comments.

John.

RE: Lobster article in Sandy Ego fish wrap.

Hi Jsea,

Our little bug friends are now gonna be the subjects of a tournament/derby/whatever ?! :(

If it's inevitable, let's hope it's at least done as a Catch-Photograph-Release affair! :)

Who said anything about charity?
There was nothing mentioned about that in the article.

Down in that neck of the woods homeland security can deal with it.

RE: BTW

Me upset? HAH, never!
I haven't seen a Halibut in SMB for months.
I believe they are extinct.
I'm just trying to spawn some conversation and/or activity, look it worked.

"IMO, WE DON'T NEED THAT!"

My bad. Experienced posters know that caps are for emphasis/yelling/being upset... I'm sure that you'll get the hang of this internet posting-thing as you get more experienced. :)
