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.  



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.
