I am new to New England (from Philadelphia). I have a few general questions for the Southern Maine/NH Seacoast chowhounds about lobsters.
When is the best time to eat lobsters? When will lobsters become soft-shell?
Where is a good place to eat lobster in southern Maine and southern New Hampshire?
Also, I know there is a lobster size restriction in Maine, is there one in NH? I have seen some HUGE lobsters in the tank in Walmart/Sams in New Hampshre. How do people eat them? Are the shells crackable with regular cracker? Will the big lobstersbecome soft- shelled?
