You can find them sometimes around here deep on the natural bottom.



Make sure when you measure them you make sure it is the carapace and not the soft membrane between the eyes. If you get stopped by FWC they will measure them that way, essentially making the bug cross-eyed while measuring. It's about an 1/8" difference but they will fine you. Also, you are supposed to have the measuring device in the water with you since they are supposed to be measured in the water.



Just a personal lesson learned. Great pics from Bahia Honda!

i got some off a few rigs last year in deep water but was not impressed with the meat. probably the way i cooked it. to be quite honest with you i did not even know that there was a size limit at the time and i figured it was alot easier to shoot them with a pole spear than grab them. it seems that i was breaking all kind of regulations. of course i am joking. soem freinds of mine said they wanted to try some so i guess if i see them again i will grab them by hand and then measure.

You probably overcooked them. The best way to eat them in our opinion is grilled. Remove the head, break off a piece of the antennae, stick it into his rectum, twist and pull it back out. This removes the vein. Cut them in half, coat with basil and butter and cook for a very short time. An average keys lobster (small) takes no more than 4 minutes. We have fewer up here, but they are bigger, so they take longer to cook. They are also good chunked up and fried - again do not overcook them, they'll be tough as shoe leather.
