Lobsters in September

deweyweber54 | Sep 14, 2012 05:33 PM

Greetings -

Must say, we loved the inexpensive soft shell lobster prices this summer.
(I'm mostly Scottish)

Great for fans of bugs this summer, but probably not the best for our fisherman friends in Maine and environs.
Hope that lobster economics will allow them to continue fishing, as well as supporting their families.

Noticing that lobster prices seem to be creeping back up again. Not great for us, but good news for the fishermen.

Debates will rage regarding soft shell vs. hard shell bugs, but we were wondering what happens to bugs as we experience shorter days and cooler weather.
Markets still offering soft shells?
When can we expect hard shells/supposedly more meat?
