I don't know of any ops who advertise that. Perhaps you can ask for a guide.
These guys are in my neighborhood and offer hunting and bug trips. You might ask if you can hire one of the DM's as a guide.

porsche060, what part of FL R U in? Chad Carney out of Tampa does some incredible spear fishing training. You might also want to check out Spearboard.com and Spearfishingplanet.com. These forums have a wealth of information. Happy hunting.

In my opinion, please correct me if I'm wrong...but the only "real" lobsters are the one's with the monster claws up here in New England, lol.

Just go ahead and grab a Carabean spiny lobster and see what happens. Check out this link titled "Fearless diver gives 8lb Lobster the finger". http://spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=20099&highlight=finger

Come to NZ mate. Ill teach you how not to get the first and last bite. Theres plenty of big fellas out there but the tail meat doesnt taste as good on our 'crayfish', as on the little ones

Hey all...I saw the post/thread about the bug hunter that lost a finger. I want to go lobstering. What would be needed to get theses things..other than a big pot, bib, and butter?

The ones with claws have mouthparts too. With the spinys, it's just easier to get your hand close enough to the mouth to get bitten.

Each state has their own rules. Dept of Fish & Game's website usually has pointers to info. Also, the sporting good stores where you buy a fishing license will usually have the info you need as well.
