Old Salt Photo of the Week Winner – Lobster

00-PW-LobstersCongratulations to Peter Shoup – newest winner of the Photo of the Week!  He was in Key West this August 2015 with Eddie Avila getting some tail.  

 

FLORIDA LOBSTERING

There are two Florida Lobster Seasons, the 2 day mini lobster season and the 8 month regular lobster season. The mini lobster season is always the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday in July. It begins at 12:01 am on Wednesday and ends at 12:00 midnight on Thursday. The regular lobster season is always August 6 through March 31.

Depending on where you hunt/collect, there are different bag limits. As of July 2015, the limit in the Florida Keys (Monroe County) and in the Biscayne National Park is 6 lobsters per person per day. This applies to both the mini and regular season. Elsewhere in Florida, you can keep up to 12 lobsters per person per day during the mini season, and 6 lobsters per person per day in the regular season. The bag limit should always be verified before keeping any lobsters. A valid Saltwater fishing license and (lobster) crawfish permit is always required when you go lobstering.

Old Salt Photo of the Week – Best Kayak Fishing Winner

Old Salt Photo of the Week – Best Kayak Fishing Winner

00-PW-KayaksThis week was kayak fishing pictures and the competition was on with a special prize donated by Canoe Country Outfitters: an Engel Cooler/Dry box full of goodies.   Jeremy Fritchy took the win with an awesome picture with a drum caught on fly.

Kayak fishing is the fastest growing sport in the fishing industry. It is a fun and affordable way to get into fishing.  There are a few essentials you need to get started:

Three obvious items you’ll need for kayak fishing

Kayak: it would be impossible to go kayak fishing without a kayak. Again – congratulations on your purchase!

Paddle and paddle leash: unless you went all in and purchased a pedal-drive kayak, the paddle is the means of propulsion and you are the motor. A paddle leash is attached to the kayak, and has bungee cords that attach to the paddle. If you drop your paddle overboard, it will not float away from the kayak.

Fishing rod: I recommend bringing only one rod out on your first trip. The fewer rods you have, the less you have to worry about getting tangled in low-hanging tree branches. As you gain experience with your kayak and being on the water, you can bring more rods.
