    Same here, been hearing the same from friends too. Slow everywhere - LA to San Diego, in the bays, outside the bays, out at catalina, kelpline and deep structure. Even when they do crawl, it seems like they're out for less than an hour and then it completely shut off.

    2 weeks ago I caught 7 Lobsters (most were clickers) and had one big rider jump off when he broke water....in just the first hour or so after sunset. After that, the seals wrecked havoc and traps went empty. Then the next time I went out the Kelp Harvesting Co had filled the water with crud you could barely see thru...and no one caught anything.

    Well I lost a net to the rock monster at sunset cliffs Wednesday, so you're doing better than me!

    Hoop netting has turned to hope netting

    Been doing better than last year from the piers. Only had 2 keepers and 48 shorts last year but so far a dozen this year. Been watching the tides to decide when to go. Also went on a lobster charter to SD bay the week before Thanksgiving. The boat had maybe 20 shorts and 5 keepers. They drop nets at the mouth of the bay. You only get 4 pulls each out of 10 folks on the boat. My son got two nice ones and I only got two stingrays in the hoop net. I went to OB a couple of days later and pulled 1 keeper and 1 short at 8:00 PM. Also caught my first shark but no macs in sight 20201121_225311.jpg 20201117_164901.jpg 20201117_164901.jpg 20201121_225311.jpg 20201117_164901.jpg !

    Begining of the season was so good I have not been out in a month. Diving has produced limits fairly regularly. Got to go hooping again soon! Maybe the big ol king tides will get things going!

    F2E26B08-C809-4B99-A1D3-489B25DB7759.jpeg Been good for me so far this year. But haven’t gone since November 21.

    Went outta MB that time at my “not so secret at all” go to spot and out of our first net maybe had 15 lobs in it and 3 keepers.....I only had a chance for one pull and 5 nets at that spot before we had to abort the trip due to some bad news.......10 nets, netted 7 keepers on one pull. And I’m telling you everybody, I mean everybody throws at this spot.......

    It’s fishing folks.... I just got a lot lucky with a little skill.
