    Opening weekend (10/3-4)I was out at Catalina. I was listening to VHF on Ch 16 on Saturday afternoon and heard a bad incident at Yellow Tail Cove.
    I havent seen or heard anything since about it.

    Also, I heard an event out at Santa Cruz Saturday morning and havent heard anything about it either.

    According to Ken Kurtis;
    LOBSTER OPENING WEEKEND - Despite our hopes, we didn't make it through unscathed. There were two fatalities and there isn't much info on either one. The first occurred Saturday late morning around Anacapa and the second was Saturday afternoon around Ripper's Cove on Catalina.
