LOBSTER BOATS IN LA JOLLA – PHOTOS & DRAWINGS

LOBSTER SEASON OPENS IN LA JOLLA & FROM THE SHORE I OBSERVE PELICANS RIDING ON THE BOATS AND SEA LIONS WAITING FOR A BREAKFAST BAIT HANDOUT AS THE LOBSTER TRAPS ARE EMPTIED.  CALIFORNIA SPINY LOBSTERS ARE NOT “TRUE” LOBSTERS AS THEY HAVE NO CLAWS.  One time a bunch of lobster traps washed up into La Jolla Cove after a storm & the lifeguards emptied the traps of all the lobsters, put them into buckets and returned them out to the marine reserve park where fishing is illegal.  It was wonderful to see that these creatures had a second chance at life.
