This two day event draws hundreds of recreational boaters in search of Florida lobster. The craze for lobsters takes over the entire island as locals and visitors take the first stab of the season at nabbing some lobsters. There are many rules, including: Bag limits, possession limits-on the water and off of the water, and minimum size limits. Some of the requirements are Florida Saltwater Fishing License and lobster endorsement/stamp. These rules are put in place to ensure the safety of all participants. For more information please visit Florida Fish & Wildlife.
