Three (3) days from today will be the beginning of lobster season in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Lobster fishing is a NO NO (close season) from 1 April to 31 July of each year and reopens on the 1 of August. This is a big time for people in the Turks and Caicos Islands. For instance, on the first day the season opens you will find many people crowding the fishery plant for some of the fresh catch. Also that day will be a Lobster fest which has brough much international interest, featuring various lobster dishes.
In south Caicos the first day of lobster season is known as the “Big Grab” and many fishermen find this time very profitable, as lobster is in high demand by all.
I cannot wait to get a taste of some hash lobster and rice, or grilled lobster and potatoes, to be honest any lobster dish.
