Well I enjoy hooping just as much as the next guy. I however would like to see a Hooping Board established so we can go see that info independent of true fishing reports. Heck, it's October!! We have some great fishing ahead of us still. By the way I know when a sport is seriously on the decline. Wal Mart has started selling hoop nets!!! Pretty soon the limit will be two.

Real Fish Reports are Best!

just because people have hoop nets doesn't mean they can catch lobster. :)

although it will make hooping more dangerous with people out there with 100' of rope going god only knows where.

i think that after a couple more years a LOT of people will give up on it. this will probably be our last season. ;)

yeah, i know what you mean. promar has a new hoop net out this year with sides on it that make it harder for lobsters to escape on the pull. i kind of have mixed feelings about it. as far as the lobster being depleted by the sudden popularity of hooping, i read an article last year from an o.c. newpaper about some old fart who went hooping literally every night. he said that he caught 500+ in one season. can't remember the exact details but it is definately this type of horse$hit that is going to kill the lobster population. i know there are lots of rocks out there for the bugs to call home but when some a$$bag decides that "hoopnetting" is his new hobby because he doesn't have anything else to do with himself, that is going to have an impact, imo. btw, i hoop also, but to date have only kept 10 bugs(2 year before last and 8 last year.) i had more lobster than i knew what to do with and it didn't go to waste.

I agree with the hooping board. Seems there is enought interest. I hoop on occasion, but don't care to post or read the reports. Heck, no one is going to give out locations, so what's the point?
