Lobster for Christmas dinner sounds like a fantastic idea!
I make a mean Rose Marie sauce and usually knock-up a batch of prawn cocktail salad for starters, but I didn't bother this year, I have been back on
the crabsticks though,
My wife and I celebrated Christmas about 10 years ago or so with my parents, and my wife had these giant 4lb fresh lobsters flown in. I've got
pictures of these bad boys somewhere, but they were HUGE! A whole tail wouldn't even fit on a plate, let alone the whole lobster.
Some years back I was lucky enough to land a bang-on 9Lb lobster on hook and line next to one of the local marinas, now that
thing was a true
The shore-caught record for lobster for the entire British Isles at the time was only two Lb more, at 11Lb, a shore-caught lobster the size of the one
I landed was and otherwise still is unheard of in my parts.
Caught on a £15 rod and reel, 15Lb mono, no.4 Japanese semicircle hook, a few splitshot and a strip of Mackerel for bait.
It's superb fishing around there for Bass too, those beautiful, tasty, feisty, bars of delicious silver, yummy!
