California Lobster are absolutely delicious, join us and discover how fun it can be to fish for some of the worlds highest priced shellfish. Fishing for them involves fishing at night and some labor, but the rewards are worth the energy and time spent. Personally California Lobster is my favorite meat hands down, easy to prepare yet soooo tasty.
The front side of Catalina is closed to commercial lobster fishing, resulting in an excellent recreational fishery. If you are seeking the best shot at limits Catalina is where you wanna go! Fishing locally for them we catch a lot but after the first 2-3 weeks of the season we typically catch only a few keepers mixed in with a ton of undersized lobster per trip due to the commercial traps taking so many.
Our lobster trips include all fishing gear, bait, and an electric pot puller to make hauling traps up much much easier on our backs. You need to provide your own fishing license, lobster card, food, drink, and warm clothes.
