Islamorada Lobster Mini Season

Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone could give me some tips for lobster mini season on any spot around Islamorada. I am going down with the family and for most of them its the first time going down there for mini season. I am not asking for a specific location (although that would be nice) but if you can point me in the right direction i would appreciate it a lot! Thanks you guys and I hope everyone has a great and safe upcoming mini season!!!

Re: Islamorada Lobster Mini Season

I've only been to the keys once and we just ran the grass flats. You can get some decent ones on the edges. It's easy fishing.. I heard from some people that the shallow reefs
Farther out arent bad sometimes... Good luck!

Re: Islamorada Lobster Mini Season

This may be a dumb question but I know that to spearfish in Islamorada you have to be 3 miles out... Does this count for lobster hunting as well? and also I was looking over at some charts and are places like Cheeca Rocks and Hen and Chicken reefs off limits when it comes to lobster hunting? Sorry to bother I just dont want to get in trouble!

Re: Islamorada Lobster Mini Season

Check FWC website.....................
Alot of "advice" but lack of knowledge is not a defense for diving (spearing/lobstering) in the sanctuary.
I personally don't dive that far up in the Keys. Can't give you "expert advice".
