California spiny lobster - Panulirus interruptus

No shortage of lobster in this protected area even though lobster season began on Oct 4th. This one was legal size around 12 inches (3-4 lbs) but large males can reach well over 10 lbs. Records vary but Panulirus interruptus has been known to reach over 3 feet long and weigh over 25 lbs!
