What's the lobster-catching process like? We left at 4 a.m. to find out, filming for a day on a lobster boat in Maine, where arguably the best stuff is caught. There was a gorgeous sunrise followed by white caps and the very repetitive process of bringing in traps, throwing out the small (or very large) lobsters and keeping the few that were of size.
Through this repetition you can learn a lot about the lobsterman's perspective on regulation, prices, and the draw of the ocean.
