    Does anybody know if shelter island pier or the area around it is a decent lobster spot? Ive been getting into lobster fishing recently and have had minimal luck off the piers. Any tips are appreciated i know that people will closely guard lobster secrets.

    I'm pretty new at it. I dived in Long Beach, San Pedro and Catalina. I have never dived for lobster here. Wanna go to La Jolla and try it out there tonight?

    Swell looks pretty big. I suspect LJ is very unforgiving at lower tides. Be careful if you go out..

    There definitely are lobsters in those rocks figuring out how to get a net down there off the rocks and more importantly back up is the challenge

    I was trying the pier for lobsters in December with no luck. I was the only one with a lobster net and nothing. There was a cleaning station to rinse off the net afterwards. Someone has added a short hose attachment which was nice. Folks were catching macs and saw a undersize halibut. I did not bring my pole that day.

    Based on this I think OB pier is better although they were shorts.
