Sorry but there is NOTHING as good as a Maine bug. Spineys make good lobster salad, but that's about it...

Maine Lobster. There is a local rest. that has a dish called "Ginger Bread Lobster" It sounds a little whacky but its basically a picked lobster with gingerbread, butter, and some various other things-- its unreal.

BTW here is a few from a month or so ago. I tried a new recipe, butter, creole seasoning, split shell, put in oven at 350 and cooked 25 mins. I have historically broiled or boiled them. Much more tender, low and slow. Just my $.02 If you have any other ideas let me know. I love this things!

You get the biggun's up there. Nice hogs too. I do mine on the grill, split, with some seasoning and butter, shell down, med - low heat. Once they start to separate fom the shell a little, flip for about 1 minute and munch.

I had the rack made by a local fabricator, Marine Specialties. I gave him theseat and he used that as a template for the dimensions. It worksgreat. I don't have any better shots of it but can get some if you want.

One thing for sure Florida Lobster(spiny) freeze well, I have some in my freezer that are frozen in water(tap) and the vacuumed sealed and that are over 5 years old and they will taste just about the same as a just caught one. I have cooked them so many ways, but I think, taking the meat out of the tail and grilling them with lime/lemon, garlic and butter basting or Italian salad dressing on occasion is my favorite. Most people over cook them and then they think they are poor quality when compared to Maine lobster. Have to agree with the Spanish Lobster, and no close season on them, at least there wasn't.

Nice hog, S4G.

I like the bulldozers/shovelhead/slipper lobsters.

Marlin009, I second S4G's question, I would like to see another picture of the tank holder and some details.

Spiny on the grill.....NEVER OVER COOK. A few minutes on each side, and the shell turns red. Meat is just turning white. Fresh only. OH YEA

The highest price tails are Africa coldwater tails @ over $30.00 per lb, next are western Oz and New zealand on the price scale


I never have been smart enough to buy any.....................or catch any...........

We have been hard on the hogs this year. Last trip we found the lobster. They are much bigger than what I am use to catching in the keys but I have to dive 100plus feet to get them. Those shallow water keys lobster spoiled me. I know where some more are. If the weather would lay down a bit I would go get em.
