Well it was closer to 5 1/2 pounds (we weighed it). This was the biggest lobster my husband has ever caught! The lobster to the right is the size you normally catch.
Evie had to take a closer look. It was still alive and moving around.
This lobster must have been really old to get so big. Mr. Brilliant said the small one on the right is at least 7 years old, so you can only imagine how long it took for the big one to grow so large.
Here's the pot we had to use to cook it. Fresh lobster is the best!
