Using of anything else besides your hands (except a baited hoop net) is illegal in 'taking' of lobsters. As per DFG, "take" is defined as capturing, injuring, killing, pursuing, harassing, attempting to catch, attempting to capture, attempting to pursue, attempting to.....
well, you get the picture.
However, if you are one of the 200 'lucky' commercial lobsterman, go on ahead and set up a couple of hundred baited traps (not hoop nets, but traps) ALL OVER the place.... you are not affecting the population one bit.... It's us recreational guys doing all the damage.....(Abalone flashback as I type this....).
