I only use the spear from my gun to get them out. It doubles up as an almost perfect lobster hook as its long and the flopper gets right behind them.I've been getting more into the lobster hunting this year and have managed to wrestle a few out or have found them wandering around on the couple of night dives I've managed but I do seem to find a lot which I fail to get out. What are your tools for this? I use a bent over radiator roller but find this a bit short at times. I did try a strong jawed long handled rubbish picker but have yet to fully test this out. Be interested to see a pic/ description of the lasso method?
The only time it doesn't work is a really deep hole that opens up. That's why I bought the lobster lasso. Its the same thing they use in America to catch crayfish. With the lasso, you can slip it in behind the lobster, open it up, and when it backs into the noose, pull it tight around the tail.
