Florida - is the mini season worth it?

This would be my first mini lobster season in Florida. Is it worth it to go out? People say it is too early and there are no lobster. Others say it is too busy...
What do you think?

Re: Florida - is the mini season worth it?

I have been lobstering in the keys for 20 plus years. I avoid mini season because of the crowds. WE usually wait till after the second week of the regular season. As far as no lobster, that is BS some years are better than others. Have fun remember your dive flag and keep a ruler on yourself at all times.

Where are you? We had a great time on the East Coast a few years ago

Avoiding mini seasons does benefit you in many way. So you should wait for the right time to go out there.
