Lobster Season Opened August 6

Lobster season officially opened on August 6th. We're finding lobster at just about every depth where there's structure. The weather has been great, the seas have been calm, and visibility has been phenomenal this summer.

One morning, the seas were glass calm and we were actually able to make the run from Port Everglades to Commercial Pier in less than 20 minutes (35 knots in our little 22 Center Console is blazing fast).

One of the real estate agents who works for me, Claudio, wanted to take a potential customer out on the boat for a quick lobster dive. When we pulled up to our favorite spot we could actually see a stainless steel washer laying on the bottom (shiny and new) at 35 feet while looking over the gunwale of the boat. Amazing!

We only did one dive that morning before we ran out of time and had to get back to work for some other appointments, but I limited out and only covered about 50 yards of reef. No photos this trip, but we had a great morning of diving!

I love being self-employed!

Happy diving!
