Lobster Hoop Netting! This is one item found on most fishing or lovers of the marine life's Bucket List. If it's not on your Bucket List it should be, especially with a local! Spiny Lobster season starts at the end of September so there's TONS of "bugs" to be caught. You'll learn fun facts about lobsters & the other marine life we'd catch or swim with. Lobsters are nocturnal all hoop netting would be done at night. It's best get the nets wet before or at sunset. Lobsters hide in jetties & rocky areas, we would throw the nets off public docks, piers or jetties.

I am a San Diego native, yogi & marine science nerd. I have led countless snorkeling & diving adventures all around San Diego. If I'm not in the ocean surfing, diving or snorkeling I'm near it weather it be exploring hidden sea caves at negative low tides, seeking tide pools, lobster hoop netting or educating myself all about it. I love sharing unique experiences with those who have similar passions.

Where you'll be

We'll be hoop netting in Mission Bay mainly. I know of a few other places we can go but Mission Bay is the most central & convenient area. We can always venture off in & around Point Loma & Shelter Island as well.

Danielle showed us how to catch lobsters!!! I’m not saying that we did, however if we had, we would have known how to do it after spending a couple of hours with Danielle. She is very knowledgeable and fun to hang out with. She taught us her techniques and shared some if her stories. I’m fully convinced that we just got skunked by the like sea bugs, but it was still fun and a great value. We will try again someday when we return to San Diego!

Had a great time! Danielle is super passionate about marine life, is accommodating, and responds to any questions in a timely manner. She ensures compliance with any lobster licensing requirements and teaches how to bait, set, and pull the hoop nets. I would reccomend this SD experience and will certainly do this again!

This is a wonderful trip with excellent host. Danielle is an real expert in marine biology, and has told us a lot of interesting things about the Shellfish and marine mammals. It is our first time fishing, so it is a simple and pleasant start.

Had a really fun time lobster netting with Danielle! She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Although we did not catch any lobsters, there were locals fishing too and they remarked how we were at a good spot. We were night fishing and the bay with surrounding lights was absolutely gorgeous! I think this would be a fun outing for anyone who’s a novice at lobster netting, fun for couples, groups, and even parents + kids who are old enough. I would definitely try this again!
