Lobster Season Opened Today!

Lobster Season officially opened today with fishermen heading out as early as possible to catch the most lobster on the first day. But the rainy day definitely posed a problem for the fishermen, making the waters murky and decreasing visibility, and making the lobsters run away for shelter. We checked at the fishing co-operative and the official count was very low – only about 150lbs was recorded at the end of the day. At only $16 per pound for lobster tails at the co-operative, fishermen are looking elsewhere to get top dollar for the prized lobster tails. Some resorts are shelling out about $25 per pound of lobster tail.
