Ambergris Today Goes Lobster Fishing
We could not sit back and wait for the lobsters to come to us; we had to catch them for ourselves. With lobster season starting today, June 15, Perlita, Delsie and Gerry accompanied fisherman/tour guide Mario Graniel to his lobster shades to catch some lobster and get them ready them for the kitchen.
It has been quite some time that lobster has been out of season and out of our reach that we could barely hold on for the season to commence. So the gang left as early as 6:00a.m. from town and headed south of the island to an area between Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. There Mario Graniel has set up shades in shallow waters that have housed lobsters that have matured to adulthood for a few months now – ready for the reaping.
By the way, Mario did notice someone attempting to invade his lobster shades as he approached. Shame on those who steal from others, we say.
