Default Lobsters In Gloucester

Where is the best place to buy Lobsters in Gloucester?

Can you get them off the boat?

Secondly there are ads in the paper for local shrimp...are they any good? Do you have any additional info?

Lobsters are for Christmas Eve. I am just curious about the shrimp.


Thanks!!!

Happy Holidays!!!!

May want to steer clean of Gloucester lobsters. The locals tend to swim in the tanks nude with the lobsters.....

Thanks for the replies. I will check out Captain Joe's...and will be sure to ask the proprietor if swimming in the tanks is prohibited.

Any info on that shrimp?

I think the cheap shrimp thing starts in early January but I will find out. Last I heard they had yet to set a price for the shrimp for the season...

I should probably start a new thread, but what the hell, lets see hwo this goes.

I need a wholesale source for bugs on the South Shore or New Years eve. Looking to grab 20-30. Anyone know of any good places? I Typically use the Lobster Pound in Abington, but since they stopped running their own gear there is no longer a benefit in price - Stop & Shop is cheaper, but I try to help the little guy. I was told to try Green Harbor lobster pound but can't get anyone on the phone there. Seems like they rolled up the sidewalk for the winter.

Ideas?
