Lobster Mini Season

August 1, 2014

I took a break from fishing to do some lobster diving during the mini season.  We caught a bunch of lobsters from some of the same spots that I like to fish.   It's neat to see the fish and how they feed.  One cool site was watching a giant flounder come off the bottom right next to me and eat a fish about 3 feet over his head.  He went from totally concealed on the bottom to gulping a meal and back to concealed in a flash!  I tried to shoot him but he made me and scurried off.    Here's a few pics:

Here's a close-up of a slipper lobster laying next to a spiny lobster.  Kinda ugly but gorgeous colors.  He is a master of camaflouge on the reef.  The spiny lobster fends off predators using his long barbed antennae.
