I haven't heard about Dana Point Jason.
You dive you should go check out the breakwater.
I'm talking about Palos Verdes, SMB, and points north which include Oxnard and Ventura.
My Son and his girlfriends father will be diving next Saturday morning
at 3AM at an undisclosed location in Sandy Eggo County. They'll be
walking in off the beach. My Son tells me the spot is loaded with
Lobsters currently, but he stopped short of telling me exactly where.
Like I'd go hoopnet them up or something. LMAO! That boy learns
quickly! Must be the time I told him DTA when it comes to Lobsters.
I guess he included his Dad in the mix. :-( I'm over it!
Just my luck, I came down with a cold on Sunday. There is a new guy that I work with. He dives, and has about 100 logged. He also clams to know a good spot! Now I have a cold, so we will have to take a wait and see approch.
There is always the hoop net/ try and keep the lines out of the prop in the dark method! I'm going to go home and check out my dive gear just in case!
With the price of fuel I prefer to hoop for them now. Diving's fun, but it's also fun to be warm and come home with a limit too!
My home port is Alamitos Bay or HH now--I don't like towing to dana if I can avoid it.
I hooped dana 3 times last year. I think for those 3 times we saw 2 shorts--0 legals. I know others did better, but my unscientific analysis would indicate that some of the local harbors have been hit pretty hard by the recent popularity of hoop netting, and the local lobster population has suffered.
I hope I don't see any of you on the water this weekend!
