Big, right enough, but it looks like a hen to me, and not the 'he' they are all talking about.

I'd say your right randcmackenzie. With these beasties the bigger they are its far far more likely for them to be female as the males are usually a lot smaller

Davie the biggest one caught at the rocks at Lossie with a cleek was caught by Pat Young many years ago it weighed in at 14lbs. and he had to boil it in the washing boiler out in the shed I can vouch for this as I seen with my own eyes. Apparently there was one landed by a Cormack a shoemaker by creel it was hanging on the outside and was reputed to weigh 16 lbs. The most lobsters caught at the rocks was 112 in a week by my brother Andrew (ex Ajax) when he was 14 he still goes down yet on the odd occasion
