Enjoy the catch:
Mini-season reports and video

August 2, 2008 

Lobster mini-season 2008 in the Florida Keys ended at midnight Thursday, July 31. While lots of lobster were harvested, businesses and traffic got a boost — though possibly less than in some recent years.

Mini-season coverage

• Reporter David Ball rode with a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer, see the FWC on patrol video from their Thursday morning: checking on divers, issuing a safety citation and making sure caught lobsters measure up.

• Senior Reporter Kevin Wadlow wraps up a mostly mellow mini-season that nevertheless saw two fatalities, possibly from diving incidents.

• Is it coincidence? The largest sculpture of a Florida lobster in America is missing from its Plantation Key home. It's The hunt for Betsey.
