Making a LOBSTER BREAKFAST - Diving the Florida Keys!Apr 27, 2023
this is over i think he got us this is here this is stealing anchor whats going on guys welcome back to the
floridaseries we are in beautiful sunny
keysthe water looks great today teal first things first we are hanging the dive flag to let other boats know hey don't come running here we are in the water we wouldn't want to get our heads ripped off while trying to catch
lobsters getting cut by a 300 would definitely ruin your trip of snorkeling in case you are new to my channel this is a rental boat me and the oldie have had for a while and we will take it out as many times as possible while we have it and just see what happens here snorkeling one day fishing al Next we've got our bag of
lobsterhere you're alright here we go alright I'm going in how's the water feels beautiful beautiful just throw that stuff out for you tickle stick do a quick shark scan uh we' okay I think when we hunt lobsters, we just found an area where there's some nice coral and swam down we just started looking under all the rocks and actually aimed for these kind of coral graveyard areas you can see they're really nice little caves and places for the lobsters swim underneath we've noticed that if we go to places where the corals are really vibrant, healthy and there's a lot of that kind of thing that looks like fans grows and things like that, there's not that many um we like areas where hurricanes have hit and I see one right here trying to get my dad's attention. in some areas they make these kind of burial grounds you can see like all the coral bones if you do it in the bottom there and uh it makes nice little caves you see there are two lobsters they actually located them just by looking at the tips of the antenna sticking out I didn't even know there were two so I told my dad he's a much better lobster hunter than me actually I let him do most of it he enjoys it a lot and uh I enjoy filming it so he goes down to look for it, he didn't realize there was a back door in this, I did it because I swam to it at first, so it didn't surprise me that one came out the back trying to escape. and i couldn't catch him this is a little bit deeper so it's a little harder for us probably around 15ft 50ft more but my old man swims when he tries to get out the back door he grabs him and he's it was the first lobster of the day when you're lobstering in florida you have to measure it right away before you put it in the bag you can't catch a bunch and then throw it all in there and measure it later because anything in the bag counts as a catch so we measure this right away and sadly this trip caused me to be warned by a local that we had to be very careful how we sized the lobster because the fishing game was very very strict you had to finish that three inch mark or you will get a ticket he said there ain't you don't even know if you're 132 inches away um they'll give you a ticket so we had to put that one back but there was another one under there and he ran away so we chased him and they're faster than they look like they're not crab like and he actually goes back to the original cave we keep trying to chase him and he goes to the right Going back to the cave where we started this is one of the things we love about Florida as opposed to Hawaii .
They just don't have much of a choice here, especially in these coral graveyards, whereas in Hawaii you have the huge coral heads that they have. so many places to hide so many deep caves and stuff to get back to and here it's so much easier oh yeah i don't think so both lobsters were very similar in size but this one was just a bit bigger than the first one so we got the first keeper of the day we're excited so you can take a look here at what some of the places were like so you had almost these areas of underwater forest and they were really cool but the lobster didn't they seem to be hanging out in these places, they liked the dead areas so it was cool to see the underwater trees swaying if you want but they light up when everything was smashed you see how my camera is smelling with its antenna there.
I thought it was cool so I swam with this one and this was a very weak attempt to catch a lobster and I was trying to think why am I so bad at this and I think it's because I'm kind of a crawdad mentality where you can slide your hand behind them and snatch them you know I don't know but right here I thought I saw an eel's tail sticking out of one more eel so I tried to get the lobster away from the eel first so I could catch more eels are very vicious so fact i saw a video one time of a scuba diver getting bitten in the face by an eel like it literally ripped his snorkel mask off so i'm a little nervous around him and thought i was going to try and get the lobster out of there and then try to grab it but when we took a closer look we realized it wasn't an eel tail it was a shark tail so we had in this cave a shark chilling with his two lobster friends I guess they must get along really well together because this is the second time we've seen this so my dad swims down and what does he do?
He grabs the shark, of course. dont try this at home guys they are very flexible and can reach out and bite you so my dad is just a beast grabbing a shark by the tail not everyone would do that thats for sure as some floridians told me. he said these sharks can circle around and bite their tails so be very careful when handling them and that's why my dad is holding him behind his head and nurse sharks don't seem to have many teeth but i have opened the mouth of one and they have a lot, so it's definitely not an activity that I recommend for everyone, what are we doing? you caught it with your hand but it was too small so let go of the little baby and I couldn't help but think he was swimming away. rock the size of a tire or bigger, there was a very good chance that there was a lobster under it and this was a good size lobster here, in fact this place was very convenient because on top of the rock there was this kind of hole like a little chimney and made it very convenient for my dad to get the lobster out.
You can see here the tickle stick that he's poking through the chimney and he pulls it out and grabs it. This is a good size lobster. we were excited. about this one that's a nice big kicker lobster it's really cool when you catch one so big you don't even have to measure it you know it's like catching a 15 16 17 inch bass just throw them in the well alive and uh my dad let me hung by the way um this little thing here i'm not sure what it was a worm a parasite uh underwater millipede i don't know if anyone could enlighten me in the comment section i'd appreciate it and then here's a little tiny lobster i guess when you're too small you can just uh you're going for a walk in the middle of the day uh no one's going to bother you and i think that's what i was doing and a little streak here i think these are really cool stingray they're called a round stingray i just found out and this was a big one they're only about 12 inches in max diameter so it's always fun to see them and then under this rock that's pretty much under the bow of the boat this is one of the last few places i looked for a lobster right under the boat and there was a good one there but i actually grabbed it by the head and it ran away and ripped off both of its antennae it was trying to run away although i figured it out afterwards because he uh the la little cave he had chosen was not very deep, in fact when i put the gopro in there you can see he is curled up in the corner very vulnerable in that spot and he actually started trying to tickle him out of there. and I was like what am I doing?
I just go back in there and grab them so I did it's actually harder to get them out than it looks he really put up a fight they are they're strong for a little crustacean they're strong and he got him out of there definitely looked like a keeper but just right here, hold him in the water and he does a flick of his tail and runs away, but this was kind of interesting because he swims down and doesn't go into the cave. although he just stays outside and I was able to grab him again, I don't know if he knew he couldn't go back into his cave because he would get caught again, but it was a good last catch. and we decided to call it after that hour, hour and a half before sunset, because we only care about shark activity as night falls.
I mean there's a reason beach anglers set their shark lines at this time, so we decided to call it. one day i'll take the catch that was a tiring good time yeah we didn't see as many as before in the past oh that's always fun on the water oh that's so many great things to see a quick text she'll be excited though probably we ask why we don't get more well of course to go home, well the lobster stayed nice and cold last night. what are you doing here oh so oh okay guys so we're going to come here to what is usually a bar and uh I've turned it into my kitchen here um we're set up for a little and Nice lobster
I've got eggs, bacon, lobster, butter, spices, and all that, and some cooking set up here and a couple of plates for me and my dad, and then here I've got this open grill part because I'm going to use that for cooking. the bacon since it cooks longer now she got this bacon on sale two for one two pounds for the price of one it was all over the place that actually bought four packs now some of you may be thinking what lobster for
breakfastbut folks i tried it in a members only video just on a whim i thought you know lobster could idk be a fun breakfast it could go well with eggs so i thought i'd experiment a bit and it turns out it's amazing how You see so bring this here we'll put it on these flames and I'll just be cooking that pound of bacon while I do everything else talking about members only videos if you want to see a bunch of bonus content and get involved in monthly giveaways like this month i'm giving away a 400 bass pro shops gift card be sure to check the description to become a member it's only a dollar a month and you can cancel anytime in fact you can become a member for a month watch all videos members only and then cancel if you want but it's a great way to support my channel and it's fun it's a much smaller community than my main channel and you guys get a lot it's great for me it's great for you guys and yeah I just watch the description so I'm going to cook two of the lobster tails this morning it's got the tails here and I'm actually going to take the meat outside because we're just going to sauté it I can't believe how much meat is on the tips of the story it's amazing there we go look that's just oh man that's great spiny lobster florida fresh lobster Caught slides out of there and then what I'm going to do is cut this because the butter I want the butter to really go in there right there we have two sliced lobster tails, let's come here, what does the bacon look like? oh it looks good lemme wipe my hands here take some butter stick it in there ok spread it out to cook it in there and then I'll add just a dash you don't want to over season the lobster I've learned um you can't overdo it abroad because lobster already tastes amazing so I'm not going to go too crazy.
I'm going to add some nice peppers that come out, little by little, add a little bit of pepper. but not too much and then this is popcorn salt but it's just like regular salt very good and I'm going to add a little sprinkling to it and that's it that's all you need for the lobster in my opinion I don't I think too much seasoning ruins it so okay first round of bacon is almost done I need some paper towels for this I'll do it in a second okay and the lobster looks done guys this is coming out . alright here alright you know I'm going to pour a little bit of that extra butter over the top and then a little bit of extra butter right on top and then check this out I'm going to take the bacon bracelets here and put this on the edge I just have a handle this is my camping setup i'm going to pour the bacon grease in there for the eggs look what i'm doing there get the bacon grease put it in there we're going to add the last egg just watch how that pan ain't very hot anymore i have to turning it up i am forced to constantly turn it up and down because it is quite breezy in here and the breeze keeps blowing my heat is one of the challenges of cooking outside but all is well.
The nice thing about eggs is that you don't have to be so precise with them. What I was going to do was use my first melt seasoning but I don't want that to clash with the good ones like buttery eggs and bacon and I just didn't want them to clash so eggs are done eggs and bacon and lobster hey hey i'm almost done here i have eggs cooked in bacon grease lobster cooked in butter and then the bacon is a star by itself ok your fork sir omg they said lobster breakfast ohomg thank you so much father for having for this food for your loving kindness and giving it generously and i ask you to bless it for our bodies amen my word is right guys so i made the lobster breakfast on a whim and it was so amazing i was like we had what to do this yeah when you take a bite of egg and a bite of lobster together in just a second here i got the lobster bitten in the butt bon appetit and it tastes amazing together i cant believe i mean i know why its not something like in your local dining room yeah because who has lobster but i'm sure at the bellagio or somewhere i do have a really yummy place but and then trying to sell it to people in a restaurant be like there's no lobster and eggs really go well together, You know?
I feel like yeah I'm not risking that friend what I love about how you've done this again is that you've cooked it I mean you didn't boil it to death you know a lot of times the lobster ends up being like an octopus, You know, you're just trying some bacon. I'll try a little, you know, before that I will. I'm going to clean the palate with orange juice. this is thick cut bacon. I tell you what is amazing. I feel rich as creatures right now. Me too. My friends. This is something. boat that's what we just go to the local boat rental you don't have to have your own and go out and it's amazing how simple it is in terms of like every time we've gone to the lobster shack and been successful just it seems to be under all the rocks and usually you see its antenna sticking out you don't even need to like it it's not that hard you can see the antenna you swim boom they're right there so yeah you don't have to go down and search everywhere while snorkeling just stay on top look look look oh there's one and then you die we're amazed at how simple a simple hunt is so it's amazing the results cook it for the breakfast super surprised how good this was but anyway thanks so much for hanging out hope you enjoyed see you next time
