We are arriving Tuesday. Can not wait to catch lobster. Someone tell me how this is done and how far out do you have to go? I've dreamt about this trip for years, catching my on lobster and cooking it out doors. I guess what I'm asking is...do you have to be on a tour to catch lobster? Can Not Wait!! Is it ok to fish off of the piers on the island? One of my favorite things to do on vacation is visit with the locals and just hang out and watch the boats come in with their catches and fish off the piers. My family and I will be taking several of the tours fishing, diving, snorkling, etc. but still! Nothing like just hanging out!!! In my opinion!!

According to the article in this weeks San Pedro Sun "each person fishing for lobster is required to have a valid fishing license."

You could call 226-2011 and get a confirmation from Caribena Producers if that applies to tourists as well.

You also have to be a citizen -as the authorities will not issue licences to aliens

akaysus now your talking ,lobster is my middle name.your best bet when you do your all day fishing ,and lobster bbq .tell the capt when he hunts for the lobster you want to watch.or can you help??it is a trip to do !! if your doing it with a licensed guide there should be no problem ,if you have a guide already make sure he is going to dive for fresh lobster ,and not have some out of his freezer he caught last week to save time... Part of the on the water experience is to catch fresh fish and let them cook your fish and lobster fresh on the grill ..if your all set with a gude have a great time?? if you need one go to my buddy's web site fishingsanpedro.com tel 501-2262835 tell steve you want a fishing , snorkel , fresh fish/lobster bbq day and you want to get in the water to watch and can you help? he will hook you up with a great local 2 man team capt and mate who will make you so happy...but what ever you do who ever you pick.. have great fun and go live the dream !!!

They issued licenses to the Japanese for long line fishing, don't see why they wouldn't issue licenses to little green men in flying saucers.

Remember also, you can only get lobster free diving, not on a tank! Enjoy those wonderful, succulent, juicy spiny lobsters!
