It's officially the start of lobster season.

Lobster season officially starts today Aug 6. After mini season it looks like a great year to be a diver. There is plenty of bugs spread throughout the Gulf and Atlantic. Those of you not having great luck on the bugs might want to look on the Atlantic side in about 5-35 ft of water. During the 2 day lobster days it was a little too rough to get on that side; so the lobster will be thick. Out in front of John's pass we have had limited visibility out to 100 ft (5 foot) Up off Hernando county the visibility gets better out in 60 foot (top to bottom) as the waters start to cool and the loop current moves closer to shore our visibility around here will start to clean up. Blue Grotto has an alage bloom but we still have 40 foot of vis and of course Rainbow river is clean with over 100 foot vis. when the tubers are not stirring it up. Good luck this weekend on opening day.
