Our lobsterman Mike Tufts catches a rare orange#lobster. If we didn’t shoot the video to show it moving and alive you’d think it was cooked. He returned it to the sea once he let us shoot the video.

On the Waterfront: Episode 2: Featuring Tony Gross, Cruiseport, and Captain Joe and Sons with host Shep Means.
Erich Archer Writes-
Hello friends of Cape Ann TV,
The second episode of Cape Ann TV’s new original series On the Waterfront is here!
On the Waterfront is a water-to-table concept with each episode highlighting a different form of sea life. We fish it, process it, cook it, and eat it. All along the way we meet the people of Cape Ann making their living On the Waterfront.
On this episode we feature one of the most celebrated and economically important species on Cape Ann – the lobster!
Join our host Shephard Means as he pulls traps with Captain Tony Gross, offloads at Capt. Joe and Sons, and prepares a delicious lobster bake with Vinwood Catering aboard the Beauport Princess at Cruiseport. All along the way we learn just how important the lobster is to this community as one of the few sustainable fishing industries left on Cape Ann.
We hope to surpass the success of the first episode featuring clams (seen here: http://ow.ly/GXtTG), so if you enjoy episode two please share it with friends!
Original Story Here On Good Morning Gloucester-
We’ve had some crazy mutated lobsters landed at our dock over the years including albino, blue, marbled, calico but none that were separated at birth from Star Wars character- Darth Maul.
Separated At Birth? You decide.

Back on June 1st The New England Aquarium declared the Calico Lobster as one in 30 Million which of course we made found of in this post-
we also had a poll in that post and took some good natured shots at The New England Aquarium’s obvious attempt to make the calico lobster they had seem like a much bigger deal than it was-
Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?
A couple of weeks ago the New England Aquarium took possession of a calico lobster and was touting it through their marketing efforts as a one in 30 million lobster.
Either the numbers they are using are off or we here at the dock are the luckiest lobster dealers on the planet and should be stocking up on megabucks tickets because we get 2-5 a year.
I’m pegging the over/under on number of speckled lobsters that are landed at our dock this year at 3.
Just another mutant to add to the gallery of blue, marbled, albino, speckled, yellow, double clawed, triple clawed and other odd lobsters landed here at our dock, Captain Joe and Sons.

Dear Capt Joe and Sons,
We recently purchased 30 lobsters from you thru Paul Korn and Sue Bumegin for our family reunion. There were family members here from Arizona and California as well as Connecticut, RI and of course MA. We had a wonderful time together and the lobster boil was the centerpiece. People could not get enough. Because a few people were unable to come at the last minute there were several lobsters left over, but not for long. There is perhaps nothing quite as good as getting an extra tail or claw when you thought yours was all gone. We were all thrilled.
Thanks for helping make our family get together such a memorable time.
