Giant Lobster In Gloucester

“Joey, hey man its Jacob across the street. I work on the Pretty Girl with Lou and Jonny. We caught and released this bad mother last week.” So begins an e-mail to from a fisherman to lobster wholesaler and blogger Joe Ciaramitaro. The e-mail included a picture of the fisherman holding a crustacean estimated to be 100 years old. The Story’s Carol Jackson talks with Joe Ciaramitaro about the lobsters he’s seen over the years. He remembers one with a head that was half white. Workers dubbed it the “Phantom of the Lobsta.”
