Luke Sandburg—a.k.a. "Lobster Luke"—is a friend everyone wants to have. Instead of paying nearly $40 per pound for California spiny lobster, he braves the dark waters off the coast of Venice, California, and catches those bad boys himself. We tagged along for a night dive and, along with some of Luke's buddies, got to enjoy the succulent fruits of his labor.

This first appeared on MUNCHIES in January 2015.
