Exclamation Diving Cape Ann in morning

The conditions should be good - anyone interested in joining me? There should be plenty of bugs and flounder around.

Re: Diving Cape Ann in morning

Christian (BostonDiver) and I had a great morning of diving in Cape Ann and grabbed 15 bugs between us (including a few behemoths) and a couple winter flounder. We left at least 10 more lobsters on the reefs for next time since we caught plenty. The water was warm and visibility was ~10 feet in most spots. New England diving at its best

Re: Diving Cape Ann in morning

Thanks for the comments guys. I'll post on here next time I'm heading out and perhaps some of you might be up for a day of looking under ledges for bugs and flounder for a change. Chasing a lobster with huge claws around the reef will get your adrenaline flowing for sure!

StriperRider - I didn't get a weight on the biggest one but he was about 1cm below the max size so he was definitely huge. We saw one bug that was about 4 times as big and although it was certainly over the limit it was cool as hell to see him/her out there.

We missed you out there Chris - hope you can make it next time!

Awesome...probably 3lb range then, probalby more with those big claws. Great bug. SpearRow and I have been seeing some monsters too. I pulled an 8.5 inch carapace last week just to look at it...two hands around her. There are some monsters for sure.

That thing was huge! Nice job putting her back into her hole, unharmed.

It seems like it's hit or miss, at least for me this season. Now that my cold has passed, I am eager to get back in.
Nice work Christian and Apnea!

NewB. You have a kayak? A couple of us might be going out then and you'd be welcome. If so, PM me.
