I also use these with my Lobster Snare when I can't quite reach a lobster with the snare loop. It really helps to get them lined up better before using the snare. This tickle stick has a slight bend at the end to get around the back of the lobster tail. Quality madeåÊlocallyåÊin the Florida Keys.
When hunting for lobster it's important to know a lobsters natural behavior when threatened. Normally lobsters hide in holes and crevices during the day to help avoid detection by predators, at night they typically roam walking forward foraging for food under the cover of darkness. When threatened they thrust themselves backwards moving their tail in short bursts of speed, the first time you see this you'll be surprised at just how fast and evasive lobster can be when their trying to get away. The best way to catch a lobster with a tickle stick is to use their natural defenses against them. Simply use the tickle stick to coax the lobster out of it's hiding space, once the lobster is out in the open you can then place your net behind it's tail. Once your ready spook the lobster so it shoots back right into your waiting net, once the lobster is in quickly force the net down trapping the lobster. It's easier said then done but after a little practice you will be limiting out on lobster in no time. Eventually a lobster tickle stick will feel like an extension of your arm, while there a many gimmicks and features on tickle sticks when it boils down they are essentially just a stick.
