Keystone Dive Products Upgrades the Original Lobster Inn Catch Bag



Every year thousands of novice and experienced divers try their hand at hunting for spiny lobster. Experienced divers have learned the hard way that having the best catch bag on the market is important to keep from losing a lobster when opening the catch bag to add another catch. The gold standard of catch bags is the original “Lobster Inn.” Garlick Manufacturing produced the original, patented Lobster Inn since the late 1970's. Upon the death of its inventor, Mr. Fred Garlick, Keystone Dive Products (KDP) acquired the company and is now selling directly to dive shops, and to the public. KDP offers an upgraded version of the original Lobster Inn, completely made here at our facilities in Port Saint Lucie, Florida.

The upgrades to the original Lobster Inn include rivets to the handle, so it will not break off, and D-rings to facilitate attachment. It has a brightly colored bag with traditional dive flag red and white colors. The top two-thirds is made of puncture resistant, solid denier nylon while the bottom one-third is white mesh nylon to allow ample water flow. The 26-inch long bag tightly snugs the outside of the 6-inch mouth to discourage lobsters from bunching up around the entrance as they unsuccessfully try to escape. For easy removal, the bag has a heavy-duty plastic zipper along the bottom with a D-ring to assist with zipping and unzipping the bag (see inserted product photos). KDP found that many divers like to use the D-rings to anchor the bag and for attaching a small float when using it as a joint collection bag.

To facilitate divers who hunt for big lobster, KDP has developed a larger version called the “La Grande” (see photo to the left). It has an eight-inch diameter mouth with an upgraded handle to allow bagging the largest of spiny lobster. Divers can also use the 36 inch long dual-use La Grande as a fish bag.
