Let The Tickling Begin!

Lobster mini season opens at 12:01am! In just a few short hours the Florida Keys and Biscayne National Park are going to be inundated with hunters and gatherers looking for their bounty (although that bounty shouldn’t exceed 6 lobsters per day per person).  It isn’t a true Florida summer without mosquitoes and the lobster mini-season.  My husband and boys left our home in South Miami yesterday for Islamorada to scout the waters, gather tickle sticks and nets, and basically get ahead of the next guy.

I read an article in the Miami Herald earlier this summer about the measures being taken by Biscayne National Park authorities to protect and restore the Park. Sadly, ending the lobster mini-season and phasing out commercial fishing are tops on the agenda. I imagine that it is not going to go over too well with the fishing and bait industries, and the last Wednesday and Thursday in July is going to be very glum at my house.
