|Palos Verdes Lobster Fest|

It's been more than a dozen years since I've seen a really big lobster. I saw four on the same reef today. The largest one had a carapace that appeared to be as wide as a football. It would have taken two hands to lift it. I estimate it was close to ten pounds. I caught an eight pounder once and this one was much larger. Three others were at least five pounds each.
Other than the massive bugs there wasn't much to see in spite of the good visibility. During my safety stop I could see my anchor forty feet below me. The ocean was glassy with very little wind after the Sun came out.
As we neared King Harbor I saw a feeding frenzy just offshore. A couple of large sea lions were creating baitballs of anchovies at the surface. The sea lions, larger fish, gulls and a hundred pelicans feasted.
