Rockport Lobster Dive?

Any reason I should not go freedive for lobster tomorrow in Rockport?

(Still new to diving for the ones with claws)

If you are strictly looking for Lobsters I would SCUBA and hope you spear something. If you plan on spearing then free dive and look for critters.

I hope the above link works, but if not just google north shore and invasive seeweed. I dove a few of the spots really effected by the weed this year and there's a noticeable lack of life, esp. bugs. Kinda frightening. Wherever you choose I'd have a plan B in mind in case you show and the shore is covered in red, 'cuz it probably won't be worth it. Pm if you want more info. and enjoy the day.

Re: Rockport Lobster Dive?

I was actually wondering about spearfishing/lobster spots in rockport that you could do without a tank. I'm not from around there though so the permit parking thing is kind of a pain in the butt

Re: Rockport Lobster Dive?

Can I dive with you guys? 978 885 6330, Steve. I have free dived a few spots out there. There is a spot that I'd like to re-visit - you could drop a kayak and gear at the launch area, park for $3, then walk back to the launch area. Or, you can shore dive the spot, paying $3 to park and walking the gear a ways down a trail.

Re: Rockport Lobster Dive?

I may go out earlier, KJM, and stay until Jav comes around. I have one idea for a spot, but let me know if you have something in mind. [I'm not sure if my PM is working because the message doesn't show up in the sent folder - if not, see my phone number above]

Re: Rockport Lobster Dive?

I did yesterday. Water was nice but all I found were shorts. Looking to dive a different Glouster spot this weekend.

Re: Rockport Lobster Dive?

Yeah, I found lots of shorts today, but one was barely legal, so he's in the refrigerator with a couple skates. I think most legal sized lobsters get taken pretty quick.
