Divers are making sure they have everything they need for lobster mini-season.
For some divers, the mini-season is rewarding and some leave empty handed, but they feel the experience is worth the risk.
Even after diving for more than twenty years, Jeff Nelson still gets a rush for lobster mini-season.
"Instead of having to pay store price for it, I can go out and pick what I want," said Nelson.
Nelson checks and double checks to make sure he has everything he needs, which can add up.
Permits cost around $20 dollars. Buying dive gear can start at $700 dollars and getting on a chartered boat averages around $65 dollars for a four hour trip.
It's a risky expense.
Steve Gyland with Cod and Capers Seafood said, "Sometimes you make a dive and you don't find a lobster."
Lobster lovers come to the seafood market to get what they need.
A tail could cost you almost $34 dollars a pound, but Gyland says he does miss the days when he used to dive.
"Find them, capture them. It's much more exciting to me than just going into a store and buying it however going into the store and buying it is probably quite a less bit expensive," said Gyland.
But for Nelson, the money is well worth it.
"It's nothing like taking a fresh lobster and putting it on the grill and eating it, yeah, you do taste the difference," said Nelson.
