I have been doing a little digging and trying to learn a about lobster and crabbing in SC. I know that it isn't legal to catch while on scuba (at least lobster) but can't seem to figure if it is legal in pots and if so, what kind of pots to people use and where could a guy get some? Is this even a thing in SC?  I havn't seen people doing it.  Limits?
Any info is appreciated
Thanks a ton!

I may be wrong on this but I believe all the crabs, lobsters and shellfish are only allowed to be harvested by the Mexicans. I don't think you can take any of those species by any means legally.

Not to mention the hooka guys make sure there isn't anything edible left anywhere close.

I thought MX banned hooka diving last year? Is this correct and like most everything else they are just not enforcing it?

I remember reading it was banned, too. Like so many other rules regarding conservation in Mexico, they are on the books and not in practice.

Have you heard? Dorado and marlin are not legal to fish, commercially.

About 5 years ago, taking any thing with a hooka was band. Hooka per say was not band, I was on the Baja side about 4 years ago using a hooka and as I was coming up to the dink, there was a game warden (I don't know what they are called in Mexico) sitting there just knowing he was going to bust someone. The first thing he saw when I came up was a camera. He was disappointed but we had a nice talk. Something that I found out, was that spear fishing at night is not allowed.
I was at Punta Pulpito ( it is about half way between Loreto and Concepcion Bay ) the last place I expected to see the law.
