The spiny lobster sport season runs from Weds.  July 30th to Thursday July 31st  for 2014. The bag limits are 12 per person per day for most of Florida.  The Spiny lobster has a minimum size limit that must be larger than 3" carapace, measured in the water. 

A reminder that possession and use of a measuring device (that's NOT your tickle stick, OK??!!) is required at all times.

Harvest is also prohibited during both the 2-day sport season and regular season in Everglades National Park, Dry Tortugas National Park, and no take areas in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.  Call (305) 743-2437 or visit www.fknms.nos.noaa.gov for information about no take areas in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. 

Good luck, have fun, and make sure I get an invite to your lobster b-b-que on Friday night!!
