If you've ever watched the show Lobster Wars, you know that obtaining lobster is no easy task. Now you can be part of the lobster experience without the hard work by investing in Catch a Piece of Maine. A partnership, which costs $2,995, entitles you to the proceeds of one lobster trap. Your trap will be fished by one of the eight lobstermen participating in the program. During each trip your lobsterman will record the catch from the trap.
The number of lobsters caught in your trap, each time your lobsterman checks it, will be credited to your personal lobster account. At any time you can have lobsters from your account shipped anywhere in the continental U.S. You are guaranteed at least 40 lobsters from your trap. Each shipment comes as a complete lobster dinner, and with every four lobsters ordered, you receive a pound of steamer clams, a pound of mussels, four servings of blueberry cheesecake, butter, lemon and lobster utensils and bibs.
Those who sign up during the holidays will be credits with 12 lobsters so that they can use them during the holiday season, but the traps go in May 1, and are pulled out on December 31.
