GREAT NEWS – Looks like we have a weather window for the 2020 Lobster Camping Trip!

The CA Spiny Lobster Family Trip is upon us and will be held at San Clemente State Park next weekend 2/7-2/9.

Prizes with be given for largest lobster by weight at the 6pm weigh-in @ San Clemente State Park Group Site #2 (1st = Speargun, 2nd = Core Bag, 3rd = Omer Mask). Lobster must be caught after 12:01am Friday 2/7 (honor system), and there are no boundaries for the event.

Once registered you will receive a sign-up confirmation email (within 24 hrs) and additional park info.

It will be cold.  Bring warm/waterproof clothing and tents that can handle rain.  Even if it does not rain it will be very wet every morning.  It will likely be windy also. Once you’re in the water you will be as warm as you ever are.  We suggest a 7mm wetsuit that time of year with booties and gloves.  Plan like you are doing a Nor Cal trip.
