    Also check the local regulations and find out if you're ALLOWED to catch one! I believe in some states it's forbidden????

    I would image you would be best off to find a rocky beach, swim, or dive out to a depth of 10-30 feet, and place large 4'dia. pvc pipes with a cap on 1 end and a has half of a cap on the other end, then check the pipes daily till u have an inhabitor.
