Note that I usually refer to lobster as bugs. I think that that
is far better than calling them large saltwater cockroaches.
I was once asked why I like lobster diving so much. I had to
think about it for a while. Explaining or describing the excitement
and fun of the sport is difficult, but you can be sure that I would
come up with some description to give you a picture.
Think about a gigantic, very cold building, full of rooms filled
with clutter, strewn furniture, hardware, machines, plants, holes
through the walls and a couple of rats. Now lobster hunting is just
like running in and out of these rooms, looking for rats to grab. You
gotta be quick and really run through this building. You have to try
to surprise them, but they are wary. It can even be more fun doing it
at night with a flashlight. If you can run fast enough, you might even
be able to keep warm. If you get really lucky, you can grab hold of a
really big rat.
I hope this explains why we like lobster hunting so much.
Enjoy the diving, seahunt
