Lobster Hunters close to the secrets of our sport should know about and remember the Legendary Bug Hunter Lee Streit. He passed away quietly in the company of his family a couple of years ago but the story of his passing wasn't completed until last weekend. That's when his ashes and those of his wife, Sherry, were spread over his favorite deep lobster reef at Catalina at 120 ft. by his loving son, Shel, a Bug Hunting legend himself. I've had the privilege of knowing, learning and diving with both of them. Lee's presence on the Wild Wave, The Peace, The Truth, The Mr. C (where he worked) and several other boats is now noticeably absent. He was tall with a full head of white hair, handsome, Loud and lovable. The lobster in the picture was over 15 lbs! When he had a good day bug diving you heard about it all the way home.... whether you wanted to hear it or not. It was not just "fitting"....It was his "Destiny" to find his final resting place on a deep Catalina Lobster Reef.... Labugman
