    Does anyone hoop net from shore, the pier or any docks in the bays? I will not have access to a boat when lobster season finally rolls around but I would really like to go after them still. I have a kayak but it's a 10' and not the most stable so I wasn't really considering that too much of an option. Any input appreciated, thanks!

    Look for submerged rocks. I have went in my 10ft kayak with three nets.

    Not hard to hoop from the kayak, but the various cliff and dock areas can pay off a bit too, have seen legals hooped off the receiving dock at the lifeguard station, ski beach boat ramp, h and m docks, and saw one guy hoop the jetty with some success using a long pole with a float at the end.. so it can be done

    Cool, thanks for the input. After some more research it looks like hooping from the kayak may not be as difficult as I was imagining. Do you pretty much wana stay around the rocks in the bay? Like the jetty and such. I'm a little bummed the season is so far away, I'm wanting to give it a go.

    Thanks again
