Hey all!
I was talking to a commercial fisherman and we got talking about crabbing and such.  He was telling me that I should try going for lobster in the Sandy Hook bay.  I don't know anything about it and tried to look it up on the NJ Fish and game site and couldn't find anything.  He was saying I could get a recreational license like I have for crabbing.  I'm looking to find out about that and lobster traps, where to get them, etc.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!!!!  Hope all your crab traps are full!

Sandy hook,N.J.
Pretty far south for a viable lobster fishery.
My guess its just chit-chat.

Good luck

Jack's right.

Homerus Americanus gets down past Chesapeake.

Good luck buying traps. Kind of like buying a crab pot up here.

look online for lobster pots...

You could get them up here for short money (used) or buy new for big $$.

You'll never find a clever lobster pot that wasn't built in New England.

(03/96) TRENTON --- The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has certified that an American lobster taken last month from the San Jose Wreck off Atlantic City establishes a new state record.

The record lobster weighing 11 pounds, 8 ounces was taken by Chris Jazmin Jr. of Somers Point when he was scuba diving from a boat at the San Jose Wreck on June 9. Marine fisheries research scientist Bruce Freeman of the DEP's Division of Fish and Wildlife verified the catch.

The previous record lobster weighed 8 pounds, 2 ounces and was taken off the Double East Wreck in 2001.

The American lobster is found in cool waters from Canada to North Carolina. Territorial and solitary in nature, they live on the ocean floor and prefer rocky crevices. New Jersey's many artificial reefs provide the perfect habitat for this species. The average American lobster reaches a length of about 10 inches and weighs 2 to 5 pounds.

The Record Fish Program honors the largest species of fish (as well as blue crab and American lobster) caught in the state. It revolves around a specific list of eligible freshwater and saltwater species, and is based on weight alone; there are no line classes.

The Skillful Angler Program recognizes the largest species of fish caught each year in the state.

Scale certification documentation, specifically the Certificate of Inspection/Test Report and Registration Certificate issued by the New Jersey Office of Weights and Measures as well as a weighmaster's signature are necessary. Other rules apply.

I remember a coworker of mine many years ago used to go scuba diving off the coast of NJ for "bugs" as she called them.  There is not a commercial fishery for lobster here, but they are caught recreationally.

I could  be wrong but im pretty shore that there are a couple lobster boats operation out of point pleasent NJ. I think there may be a boat or two in the bayshore area around middletown. There are def guys fishing artifical reefs for lobsters too, i actually just read an article about it online I will have to try and find it. As a side note my Uncle was a commercial fisherman for years and works at the Hunts Point fish market and the South Street seaport before the move for like 30 years. He swears that a guy he knows caught a lobster directly under the verrazano bridge, I know it sounds like bs but hes a straight shooter.
