Just like SEO, lobster hunting requires the right tools to get the job done. If you’re not using the right tools for the job, you won’t catch a damn thing! Basic tools are enough to help find and catch one or two, but if you decide to invest in quality tools of the trade, you’ll catch more than you could have imagined.

Unlike reef fishing, catching lobsters doesn’t have much to do with bait (unless you’re using traps!).  You have to actively pursue your prey and be persistent enough to keep trying even when a couple opportunities scurry off in front of your face.  A good catch isn’t always easy to come by, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ample opportunities if one site doesn’t produce.

During off seasons – you have to get a bit more creative to catch lots of lobsters.  Sometimes, the pickin’s are slim in well known areas…and there just isn’t much you can do about it.  If you’re looking for lobsters in an area which gets lots of pressure from other hunters, it might be time to build a few structures which naturally lure bugs on their own accord.  Lobsters are naturally attracted to places they can trust (i.e. feel safe, find other lobsters to hang out with, and chow down), and even though the authorities frown upon deploying structures designed to naturally attract lobsters in unprotected waters  - hey, sometimes people are counting on you to put dinner on the table!

The key to succesful lobster hunting is persistence, patience, and a solid strategy. So next time you’re out hunting for links, just consider it training for the better part of lobster season!
