    I use a 5mm wetsuit. With hood, booties and gloves I do fine to 55 degrees.
    Something I finally learned after a few trips: grab the bugs fast and HARD, they are not delicate... Also, they "kick" hard to get away which can startle you the first few times you grab one. I lost a few early on because I let go out of reflex...

    i don’t think i’ve come across any catch reports from lobster free divers here. what are the chances of reaching your possession limit in a one session? if the odds are any better than hooping legals at OB pier then i might go and give free diving a try.

    i was surf fishing at TP at dusk today when I met a pair of them divers, all geared up for the sunset dive. are you one of them? how did it go?
