VALUABLE INFORMATION - Link to Monroe County Sheriffs Office Lobster Mini Season Information
This July 29 marks the beginning of Ocean Reef 'Lobstermania.' Although it's a short two day precursor to the official opening of Lobster Season in August, it's the perfect reason to indulge in a month-long rental or purchase of a home at North Key Largo Real Estate's private fishing and golf club. How else will you catch and consume your delicious fresh Florida Spiny Lobster?
LOBSTERMANIA - untangle the secret of how to net the right sized bug...and you get a madcap weekend full of fun competitions, prizes and activities. It's always the last Wednesday and Thursday of July - when the Florida Keys in general and Ocean Reef Club in particular, go crazy for lobster.
Members of the Ocean Reef Club and their guests are offered two days to forage and then feast! While the focus is on the hunt for lobster – there is life beyond the bug.
Lobstermania, for those who want to relax as the festivities unfold offers an alternative schedule. But for the adventuring crustacean hunters among you - once you have your bag limit - drop your catch off by 5pm and return later to enjoy a freshly prepared dinner.

Beyond the excitement of a fresh-from-the-ocean delicacy only available here in the Florida Keys, there is everything else to love. When you can fly right into the Ocean Reef Airport's private 4,000 ft runway, perhaps it isn’t unreasonable to throw your catch in a cooler and bring it home with you.
But why leave when the good life and luxury surround you? The immaculately tended, well-masterminded homes, the nature, the azure blue water that wraps and weaves its glistening way throughout this North Key Largo private fishing and golf club all beckon you to stay.
LAUNCH YOUR BUG HUNT FROM YOUR DOCK & GO
The scene here fits perfectly with the concept of epic Yoga sunrise and sunset poses. Whether you want to hunt lobster or immerse yourself in golf, fishing, tennis or croquet. The hustle of Miami is 60 miles away! And the rich culture, both literary and piratical, of Key West is 120 miles straight down US1.
And although the Ocean Reef Club marinas are occasionally home to south Florida’s largest collection of mega-yachts, the way the Equity Members feel about keeping their sanity intact, it’s no surprise it’s incredibly peaceful and with a dress code, rather well-heeled.
Truly, the Ocean Reef Club is a place in which to invest. This is a one-of-a-kind experience that many do find difficult to leave behind. So the quandary is to buy and live, to buy for investment, or to rent once in a while?
As ‘Lobstermania’ presents the good life, and a perfect opportunity to sample the adventure surrounding you here with a test of one's bug hunting skills. It also offers the opportunity to contemplate one's options.
