The spiny lobster sport season is Wednesday and Thursday.
The bag limit is six per person per day for Monroe County, and 12 per person per day for the rest of Florida.
There are no vessel limits for the sport season only, and possession limits are enforced on and off the water. The possession limit on the water is equal to the daily bag limit, and off the water is equal to the daily bag limit on the first day, and double the daily bag limit on the second day.
Lobsters must have a carapace 3 inches or longer, measured in the water. Divers must have a measuring device in their possession, and night diving is prohibited in Monroe County during the sport season.
A recreational saltwater license and a crawfish permit is needed for harvest. Holders of a Special Recreational Crawfish License may not harvest pursuant to this license during the sport season.
Regular spiny lobster season runs Aug. 6 through March 31. The bag limit is 24 per vessel or six per person per day, whichever is greater. The vessel limit applies only in state waters and does not apply in federal waters.
