    Holy cow. Glad it will survive for a while longer. Probably older than I am.

    I was at the Wellfleet Oyster Festival a few years ago, and after the Oyster Shuckin’ contest, they had an auction. One item was a very large lobster, not even half the size of the behemoth shown here. The crowd started chanting: “Set it free, set it free!” The highest bid was a couple of hundred dollars, and the new owner announced that the lobster would be returned to the ocean alive. Love it and kudos to the crew of the Pretty Girl.

    WOW!
    So pleased to read that you released this lobster.
    How old do you think it is?
    THANKS.

    • Dan The Lobster Man says:

      They say that a lobster is 5 to 7 years old per pound. That Monster Lobster is close to 100 year old! Seems a little strange because a Lobster that big can’t fit into a trap, they must have caught it dredging.

    Thanks for the picture of a rare beauty, and thanks for letting him (?) go.

  5. Cecilia says:

    To the person that said that we didn’t catch this behemoth in a trap, you’re right. We actually caught this in our net.

  17. EJ says:

    It reminds me of the monster lobsta we see diving out at Old Garden Beach. It is scary! I have come across it a few times over the years diving out there.

  18. John Kennedy says:

    awesome release of a true wonder of nature, so thankful for the respect you have shown
