Nay nay!! Get the lobster fresh enough, no butter needed!

Place I used to keep my boat there were a few comm'l lobster boats. They'd call on the radio inbound and sell the culls dirt cheap on the dock. Lobster less than two hours out of the ocean is so sweet butter is a sacrilege!

Lobster and clams, butter just masks the flavor!

After what I saw in Maine last year I am surprised there are any lobstermen left in the business. The wholesale and retail prices in Maine went so low many lobstermen pulled their gear and dry docked their boats....couldn't make the cost of fuel based on the prices lobster were selling for. I lobstered commercially from 1970-1976 and last year wholesale prices dropped to levels I saw in the 1970's......no way anyone could pay current expenses at that price. The cause was simple....too many lobsters!! Yet retails around the country stayed near levels of prior years. The middle man took advantage of the oversupply and made extra money. Last year friends who live in Maine were paying $3 a pound at the docks !!!

I'd happily pay $4 a pound here in southwest Colorado....

We lived on Phillips Lake at Lucerne in Maine and Trenton Bridge was a regular stop on the way back from Mt Desert Island. First time there my girlfriend (now wife), a Maine native, told me she couldn't eat lobster She was allergic. I asked what would happen if she did but she didn't know, never tried. She took a small bite and hasn't slowed down since. She eats all of hers and 1/2 of mine. She called her mother when we got home to let her know. Turns out her mom told her she was allergic when she was a child because they couldn't afford lobster for the kids.

There's another good lobster pound on Rt 1 in Sullivan, east of Ellsworth

If you've traveled along the coast of ME you no doubt have seen the huge lobster outside of Wimpy & Ruth's Restaurant. The DW can't remember exactly where it is (she does not like lobster,clams or fish but they have great pie) but we always stop there for lunch on our way to schoodic point to clam. We also then head down to Corea and Winter Harbor. As a kid her family vacationed in Corea every Summer. It's very quaint and away from most of the tourist traffic of BH.

Wimpy's also has the outside steamers for lobster and clams.
