Saw a post here about some carts along the PCH selling local lobster. Does any one know of these or other "under the radar" spots to buy local bugs.. The OP mentioned 1-2.5 pounders for 4 to 8 bucks?? sounds kinda C H E A P to me.. Would love to make a BBQ and invite my friends. Any advice would helpful.. Thanks

    1. re: carln

      Prices may drop a bit when the non-commercial season opener hits later in the month. Coming into shore I've been hit up to sell my catch at times, and I'm guessing these guys will sell out of a cart the next day.

      However, I've never sold my catch so I wouldn't know. ;)

    2. You need to find someone who dives and catches more lobsters than cares to eat.
