Darth Maul Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons

We’ve had some crazy mutated lobsters landed at our dock over the years including albino, blue, marbled, calico but none that were separated at birth from Star Wars character- Darth Maul.

Separated At Birth?  You decide.

1 in 100 Million, Huh? Second Albino Caught In A Year By A Captain Joe and Sons Lobsterman

John Todd Writes In-

Joe,

   I forgot to mention when I offloaded yesterday that I had caught an albino lobster in the harbor. I took a few photos with my phone that I thought you might like to see and maybe post on the GMG page. I was going to bring it in but just after I took the last photo a homie dove down and grabbed it off the table, probably thinking it was something other than a lobster due to it’s color. It dropped it just off the back of the boat and out of reach, although I think it was short anyhow. I looked it up and they said it is as rare as 1 in 100 million. I know you had one a while back from Mike Tupper so perhaps they aren’t so rare or they just like to come to Gloucester for the hospitality!

Gloucester Exposure On CBS Around The World For Free With Jeff Schroeder

Jeff literally showed up around 7:30PM and the sheer number of Gloucester locations that we squeezed in was outstanding. Huge thank you to Mark Ring who took us out on the Stanley Thomas to the Greasy Pole and Mike Tupper who caught the Albino lobster and allowed us to release it for the show(we had been holding it in our tanks so his father in law could see it).

Jeff Schroeder Frees Rare Albino Lobster To Gloucester Harbor Video

Jeff Schroeder who just yesterday started his journey for CBS “Around The World For Free” had a choice- Eat The Lobster or Free The Lobster.  Two envelopes with two very different outcomes for the rare crustacean. If he chose to Free The Lobster he would have to walk the Greasy Pole In Gloucester Harbor.

For those of you wondering the fate of the extremely rare albino lobster that we had landed at our dock at Captain Joe and Sons in Gloucester Ma, watch to see what becomes of the rare crustacean.

Jeff Schroeder From CBS Amazing Race and Big Brother Came To Gloucester To Film Around The World For Free

DSC08502

We hosted him at our house last night along with the crew, director and my boys The Rabbit and Benny Goodman.

But first we had a whole lot of fun in Gloucester.

When I first realized he was coming this way my first thought was to have him go lobstering on one of our boats but then midway through the afternoon the perfect idea for some good tv.

Any of our loyal readership knows about the triple pincher clawed lobster that we got at our dock last Saturday.  it was the first one I had seen like that but we sold it off at the end of the night never really knowing where it was going or if it would be eaten the next day (which I have no problem with BTW). But some of our readers, the newspaper people and television people that came down to cover the story about the triple pincher clawed lobster all asked if we would let it go because it was a “special” lobster.  We don’t take special measures to release these lobsters normally as the afternoons here are all about getting the lobsters in and out of the building as quickly as possible and of course to sell them to people that will pay the bill for said lobsters.

So when in the very same week one of lobstermen Mike Tupper aboard The Freemantle Doctor brought in an albino lobster one of only two I’ve ever seen in my entire life handling millions and millions of pounds of lobsters down here since I was a kid Mike asked if we could keep the lobster in the tank so he could show his father in law.

OK now here is where the idea came to me-  We have Jeff make the decision since the name of the show is Around The World For Free- He could eat the special albino lobster and all the lobster he could eat or he would have to walk the Greasy Pole and earn the right to release the incredibly rare albino lobster back to the sea.  I presented the two options in two envelopes One said EAT THE LOBSTER- The Other  envelope said FREE THE LOBSTER.

Mark Ring,skipper of lobster boat The Stanley Thomas took us out to the Greasy Pole and Jeff made his decision-

Here is Jeff on the Greasy Pole taking some advice from my boy the Rabbit

Unbelievable! Twice In One Week! Only The Second Albino Lobster We’ve Ever Landed Out of Probably 10 Million

This Albino Was landed Today.  Out of probably (I’m guessing 10 million) lobsters I’ve seen landed at our dock over the years this is only the second total albino one I’ve seen.

To top it all off it gets landed in the same week as the triple pincher clawed lobster we got in on Saturday.  I wonder if the warm water is making these mutated lobsters more active because it is way too much of a coincidence. HD video coming in about an hour or two.

Albino Lobster

Last summer Toby on the Jupiter II brought in a lobster that was yellow in pigmentation, I’ve never in my 33 years down the dock seen a completely white albino lobster.  I’ve seen half white ones and documented them in photographs, half blue ones and documented them, but never a completely white one.

Look for the video tomorrow morning.

Thanks goes to Paul Movali for pointing out to me.  Paul’s a good egg.
