Captain Jon Ackley and the sportfisher Westerly are doing hoop-net lobster charters out of Long Beach Sportfishing. Hoop-netters are allowed up to 7 lobster per person which can add up to a lot of tasty meals.
If lobster costs about $25 a pound, and you get 10-pounds of bugs, you just scored $250 worth of the most delicious fresh seafood imaginable. Y0u will never get it any fresher.
A total of 10 nets per boat can be deployed at a time. Some groups just divide the catch at the end of the trip while others put their names on individual buoys and fish against one another.
You will need a California Fishing License, a Lobster Report Card and a gauge to measure your prized catch with.
