Did you participate in last weeks’ Florida lobster mini-season? Even though the mini-season is only two days, it’s always enough time to catch delicious Florida lobster. The Florida spiny lobster is distinguished from the American lobster by its two antennae that replace traditional claws. They are very meek, and can be hard to catch!
