Mini/Regular Lobster Season – Largest Lobster Awards 2016

There is nothing that says “Florida Keys” more than the tradition of lobster season. For guests of the Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge, catching lobsters is a tradition that brings them back year after year. As part of this tradition, the BPKFL gives out awards to those who catch the largest lobsters in several age categories.

Awards are given out during the Mini/Regular Lobster Hops. In addition to the largest lobster awards, a special ceremony is held for every guest who has caught their first lobster, thereby joining the ranks of the “Ugly Giants.”
