I would say that if you have never gone on a lobster hunt, take a clinic on this fun and tasty sport. There are several guides offering these clinics and I am sure they will get dialed in. If you want the short story about lobster(no way can I say everything in one post so I'm just wetting your appetite is all)the first thing to understant is that lobster are nocturnal. I say that for a saftey reason and if you are uncomfortable being on a kayak/in the water at night, you can still catch them in the early mornings at first light and at dusk.
Lobster need to hide in rocks for protection, so when you find a rocky reef, you are likely to have found a lobster condo. At night lobster love to venture out to the eel grass to eat the sea snails so if you find eel grass next to a reef, you have a very good chance of getting butter dripping down your chin the next day along with your wife/girlfriend rubbing your "budda" belly after dinner. The start of the season you will find the bugs shallow, 30'AND LESS. Start hooping around that depth and go shallower from there.
