HOW TO AVOID THE MAINE LOBSTER TRAP
Any Maine skipper will tell you that, come the season, Maine's waters area mass of brightly colored lobster pots. (There are over 3 million pots set each season).
SELECTING & COOKING A MAINE LOBSTER
There are lobsters... and then there are Maine Lobsters. That is why almost half of the lobsters caught in Maine are flown out of the country to Europe and Japan. Starting in late June and on into December there will be plenty available for your galley and you can buy fresh live lobsters just about anywhere on the Coast.
