    OB is infested with lobster right now. I don't fish for them personally just need more of you who do to go cull them. South side of the pier in the rocks/reef from around the green cage and out. I was getting them on dropper loops and #4 -#6 hooks with salted shrimp(stays on hook better). They love gulp sandworms too but usually just snip off the tail and leave the rest on the hook.
    50lb mono and up main line for the dropper loop, 20lb and under to ensure you and retrieve your rig when you get snagged in the rocks

    When they are thick, they can really be a pest when they start crawling..

    Let's call it what it is, if you take an undersized lobster it's poaching. It is really bad at IB. Either they don't have a lobster card or they are undersized. People have told me some undersize were keepers when checked short. Then they say just take it anyway they don't check. Then they are shocked at the $1000 fine if found with one.
