Whether you are a big time contributor or casual observer of GMG I hope you have a fantastic holiday filled with great food, family and FOOTBALL!

I’m thankful for all the accomplishments and community events we’ve been pulling off and the relationships created through the blog.  I’m thankful for a healthy beautiful family and I’m really really thankful for a family who embraces football on Thanksgiving!

Thanks for stopping by and being part of this giant snowball that just keeps picking up mass and getting bigger as we roll along.  Without you we wouldn’t have much reason to keep plugging away at this thing :)

James William (Jimmy) Buffett Quote Of The Week From Greg Bover



"Indecision may or may not be my problem."
James William (Jimmy) Buffett (1946-    )

A native of Alabama, Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band are best known for their celebration of a laid-back tropical lifestyle typified in songs such as “Margaritaville” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” also the names of restaurant chains owned by the singer, author and businessman. Buffett’s loyal fans, known as Parrotheads, turn up in the thousands at each of his many concerts helping him to earn an estimated $100 million a year. Several of his literary efforts, including “A Pirate Looks at Fifty” have been at the top of the NY Times best seller list and he continues to write for and appear in movies and on television. Buffett’s entrepreneurial projects also include two minor league baseball teams, a casino, brands of beer, tequila, salsa, and guacamole. He also flies his own jet, a Dassault Falcon 900.

Third Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons in 2012 Makes Prediction A Push

Also makes New England Aquarium’s assertion that their calico lobster was 1 in 30 million sound a bit ridiculous.

This Calico Lobster Landed today Novmber 21 By The Rockport Lobster Boat The Freemantle Doctor and Captain Mike Tupper.  The Same Lobster Boat That Will Be Bringing Santa In To Bearskin Neck For Rockports Christmas Celebration!

Here is the third Calico-

It all started here with the poll we posted on June 4th, 2012-

I’m pegging the over/under on number of speckled lobsters that are landed at our dock this year at 3.

Back on June 1st The New England Aquarium declared the Calico Lobster as one in 30 Million which of course we made found of in this post-

Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?

we also had a poll in that post and took some good natured shots at The New England Aquarium’s obvious attempt to make the calico lobster they had seem like a much bigger deal than it was-

Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?

Posted on June 4, 2012 by Joey C

A couple of weeks ago the New England Aquarium took possession of a calico lobster and was touting it through their marketing efforts as a one in 30 million lobster.


Either the numbers they are using are off or we here at the dock are the luckiest lobster dealers on the planet and should be stocking up on megabucks tickets because we get 2-5 a year.

Just another mutant to add to the gallery of blue, marbled, albino, speckled, yellow, double clawed, triple clawed and other odd lobsters landed here at our dock, Captain Joe and Sons.
