Daytime Hunting For Lobsters

Updated: Nov 27, 2019

Yes, despite what some people say you can be very successful hunting California spiny lobster during daytime hours. The secret to this is knowing what key structures to look for while diving. The method of diving during the day specifically applies to areas outside of coral reefs. Coral reefs are difficult to hunt for lobster during the day due to the deep holes in the reef where the lobsters like to hide until night hours. These holes are extreme difficult to access by hand only. In Florida, you can use certain tools to reach these lobsters deep in the holes, but in California as well as Hawaii these types of methods are not legal. So how do I do this? First, knowing where to hunt.
