This Calico Lobster was caught on Monday, July 16th by the F/V Ole Mossey captained by Vaughn Clark, The lobster was thrown back into the Atlantic.

The odds of catching a Calico Lobster are 1 in 30 million. The odds of catching a yellow lobster are 1in 30 million and the odds of catching a blue lobster are 1 in 2 million  The odds of catching an Albino Lobster are 1 in 100 million

If you land an "unusual" colored lobster, please take a picture and email it to me at so I can post it on our website.
