    Default Bahamas Lobster Pirates

    http://bahamalobsterpirates.com/
    On tonight at 8:30 on the Sportsman Channel

    Many of the boats are based in Eleuthera (Spanish Wells).
    Should be fun to watch.

    Interesting! Thanks for the tip. Not sure if we get it up here, but will be scouring the channels for that one

    I wonder if they'll mention all the boats that go out before the season opens and illegally poach lobsters, or the guys who continue to take lobster out of season (and sell them as "summer crab"), or the number of undersized lobsters that are taken.

    Definitely a huge problem. I've seen Dominican motherships with strings of 15-20 skiffs operating in the Gingerbreads and off Andros. They take millions of dollars of crawfish, conch and fish such as grouper and snapper.

    Here's the latest bust - Dominican and Bahamian poachers, and an American who didn't clear Customs: http://www.tribune242.com/news/2014/...ized-crawfish/
