While night fishing off the coast of Bermuda, and in the wake of Hurricane Nicole, the charter vessel Sanctuary Marine Bermuda accidentally captured a 14 pound Spiny Lobster. The ginormous crustacean was later released. The largest lobster recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records was 44 pounds. If this is what a 14 pound lobster looks like, can you image a 44 pound lobster?!?

Some pretty cool stuff on there for the lobster lover in your life!
Well if this isn’t the coolest damn#Christmas #lobster decoration ever I don’t know what is. My buddy Bex added the lights. Someone from #RockportMA made the lobster trap wire lobster. I’ll find out who and credit the creator once I talk to Bex.
A lobster boat caught fire off the coast of Crane Beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts, Friday morning according to the United States Coast Guard.
They say the operator of the “Dawn Breaker” attempted to fight the fire with a fire extinguisher, but could not keep up with the flames.
The operator contacted officials with his exact location after activating a personal locator beacon, then jumped from the 28-foot ship. A good samaritan aboard a skiff safely pulled him out of the water in less than 15 minutes.
The operator was brought back to shore, where he was evaluated by EMTs.
It is unclear how the ship caught fire, but the Coast Guard called the operator a “true professional mariner” and said he did everything right after the mishap.

I’d say once a month someone calls the dock looking for an old used wood lobster trap they can put a piece of glass on and turn into a decorative coffee table. The answer for as long as I can remember has been “The fishermen haven’t used wooden traps forever.”
Now with this load of wooden lobster traps it’s the first one I‘ve seen in a whole long time.
