It’s Lobster Season in Kona

The months with the letter “R” in them mean the lobster hunt is on. Spiny lobster and slipper lobsters are a treat for your dive bag, and beat Safeway any day.

Conditions where calm when we left Honokohau boat harbor at 11:30 p.m. Right around the corner is my secret lobster spot. A few days before the dive I was snorkeling and found a huge lobster molt.

“Molting” means that lobsters are shedding their shells in order to grow. The shell splits up the back and the creature backs out, leaving the old shell behind. The lobster will increase their size by about 20% at every molt.

On this particular night, we found three lobsters. One too fast to catch, the other a female, and one five-pound lobster perfect for dinner. There is no greater feeling than eating your own bounty.

Hunting for lobsters is a lot like looking for Real Estate. Seek your area out, don’t give up, and then have a Realtor help you with the hunt. And you too will enjoy your new bounty.

Just another reason why I love living the Hawaii Life on the Big Island. View my favorite Big Island Foreclosures
