FLORIDA KEYS LOBSTERS

Miami1 Oct 2011 - 9 Jul 2012

THE WEATHER GOT VERY ROUGH AFTER I LEFT MIAMI ON SUNDAY OCT 2nd. WHEN WE GOT TO LITTLE MONEY KEY, IT WAS RAINING, WITH HIGH WINDS AND HEAVY SURF. THE COAST GUARD HAD ISSUED SMALL CRAFT WARNINGS AND NONE OF THE DIVE OPERATORS WERE GOING OUT. THIS WAS THE ROUTINE FOR THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS,BUT WE GOT ABOUT A 12 HOUR BREAK AND MADE 2 SHORE DIVES IN 18' OF WATER, ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THE LOBSTERS WERE HOLED UP IN THE CORAL AS IF THEY WERE IN THE TANK AT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD GROCERY, (OCT. 1st WAS OPENING DAY). WE TOOK 6 THE FIRST DAY AND ONLY GOT TO GET 2 MORE DIVES IN FOR THE DURATION OF THE TRIP, DUE TO THE WEATHER, BUT WE CAUGHT MORE LOBSTERS, AND ATE GOOD! VIS WAS APPX 15' AND THE CURRENT WAS MODERATE, BUT THE CORAL SHIELDED US ENOUGH TO MAINTAIN OUR BUOYANCY CONTROL FOR A GOOD HARVEST!
