Lobster fishing and Crab fishing in Oxnard / Channel Islands

by Channel Islands Sportfishing Staff
Lobster fishing in Oxnard / Channel Islands is great fun for everyone!
Lobster season opens on September 28, 2013. With that starts our Hoop Net trips aboard the Cobra!
These trips depart on Friday, Saturday and Sundays at 5:30pm. Each trip is limited to 10 anglers. This allows each angler to have their own net. (Only 10 nets are allowed on any boat at any time).
The trips earlier in the season start out (WHEN there is still day light) with some fishing! Once we set the anchor on the Lobster areas, we stay Hoop Netting. People are allowed to fish with a rod at that time if they want to.
Lobster, Crabs, and assorted fish can be caught on these trips. Please make sure you are current on your CA fishing license if you are 16 years and over. And everyone, regardless of age, must have a lobster card.
You can purchase these at the landing or get online here.
