 Its lobster season - California Spiny Lobster

You know its not summer anymore when theres football on Sunday and the California Spiny Lobster season opens. This years season runs from today through March 10th 2010. Winter warriors dig out their dusty dive gear long buried in the back of the garage and hit the water at all hours of the night. Otherwise sane individuals become rabid hunters of these tasty crustaceans.

More than once on a lobster dive, Ive come upon a diver who has removed his tank and bc to allow himself to wedge further into a narrow crevice, one arm reaching in for the object of his desire the other outstretched holding only his second stage hose with tank floating above. A marine biologist friend of mine has a nice photo of a particularly large spiny lobster. When doing a slide show and this photo would come up, he used to say we studied and photographed this individual in place then collected him for a protein study. All I can say is pass the butter.
