We used to hunt spiny lobster in scuba gear at night in Okinawa and then cook them in a trash can over a driftwood fore on the beach while listening to "Dick Bartleys Solid Gold Saturday Night" on Armed Forces Radio. Man, those were the days! Dick is still on the radio. I should send him a letter thanking him for the memories!The community my folks were in in Baja was offered a muy grande' lobster . They couldn't get the whole thing in the normal 3-5 lobster pot so they cooked the front half then the tail . 17# tail on a Pacific spiney .
