Opening Day Lobster Season Results

As predicted in the 2018 - 2019 Preseason Lobster video, Opening Day Lobster results were pretty awesome. We were met with Great Ocean conditions and visibility, and the very first underwater structure found, held over three limits of legal lobsters. On the way home, we were greeted by the Fish and Game dept. who were found riding along with the Los Angeles Sheriff Boat guys.

Heading over to Dive n Surf in Redondo, we all received a Nice Lobster Mobster T-shirt; gifted to each diver who entered a Legal Bug. One diver there was Lucky enough to pick up his 42nd straight Lobster Mobster T-shirt, having participated in EVERY Lobster Mobster event from the very beginning of the start of the Contest by Dive n Surf. He sure looks different then the picture of him taken in one of the first contests!!!

Except for the poor guy who got munched by the shark in Encinitis, opening day seemed to be pretty safe, compared to past openings, probably due to the New Daytime start time.

Re: Opening Day Lobster Season Results

The new start time doesn't do anything to keep people safe, that was just the bullshit pretext purpose for making the change.

The change was to make it easier on F&G so they don't have to be super active from midnight to 5am once a year.

And the reason people were (mostly) safe was because it was super clear and calm. I'm not saying day dives aren't at least marginally safer, but you can still die in a cave in the daytime.

Yup I was rolled up on by F&G too on opening day, PV area. Some friends received warnings for not filling out the report card before diving.
