Huge 14lb lobster caught off Bermuda coast


Posted on Tuesday, 25 October, 2016 | Comment icon 11 comments
The gigantic crustacean was caught just one day after Hurricane Nicole swept through the area.
Fishermen Matthew Jones and Tristan Loescher had been fishing off the coast of Bermuda when one of their catches managed to get tangled up in the mooring line of a nearby boat.

When Loescher swam out to untangle it however he found something that neither of them had ever expected to see.


The massive lobster weighed 14lbs and was almost as big as the men themselves.

"Most of the time a 10-pound is the biggest anyone will typically see in their lifetime," said Jones. "Each leg measured 2 feet, but I do believe they get much bigger."

While the pair contemplated donating the specimen to a local aquarium, they ultimately decided to release it back in to the water.

"It was one of the biggest lobsters we've ever seen," said Jones.

"It's not typically caught that way so we decided to let it go."

I have no problem with them releasing it. I just think I would have eaten it.
