I have posted this before, but since it is now buried in the archives I thought it would be a good time to share my rules for sizing lobster with you again.

  1. If it looks short --- it's short, leave it, move on.
  2. If it looks borderline -- it's short, leave it, move on.
  3. If there is the tiniest tinge of doubt in your mind -- it's short, leave it, move on.
  4. If it looks legal -- measure it before you bag it.
  5. If itís bigger around than a fat beer can -- bag it. (a.k.a. Fosterís rule)
  6. If itís two hander -- bag it.
  7. Bugs seem to shrink when you bring them to the surface -- measure them all again before you transfer them to the holding well. (a.k.a. the inverse pressure effect)
