F.V. Rachel Leah


The R.L. is a 77 foot Offshore lobster boat which makes over 30 trips a year to the rich fishing grounds of Georges Bank. She was one of the five boats featured in the Discovery series, “Lobster Wars”. When she is not out on the fishing grounds she is tied up at the end of Pleasant St. In Hyannis, Mass. If  you are in the area you are welcome to come down and watch us unload and talk to us about the in and outs of lobstering. If you are interested in buying directly from the boat,  please bring along a bag or a container suitable for your purchase. The lobsters we catch tend to average between 2 and 6 pounds. We do not catch many lobster smaller than 2 pounds, as a matter of fact we catch more lobster over 6 pounds. The times we off load vary, so please check in on this web page for the next time we will be unloading.

                   Friday December 2nd update

Hi Everyone,

The Rachel Leah is headed in. They will be in tomorrow morning (12/3) around 9:30am. Please look for an update on the time before you head to the dock in the morning. The Guys will have a head wind all the way home so the time could change.

     It has been a very stressful year for the commercial fishing fleet on Georges Bank and just recently President Obama signed some of the canyons and sea mounts of Georges a national monument. This is very upsetting to us, as many of our friends and colleagues will be directly affected by this action. We will not know the indirect impact to our fishing immediately, but we know there will be affects. But for now we have the best off shore lobsters available for you.

A special thank you to everyone that has showed their concern, we really appreciate it.

Unfortunately because of a few, we will no longer accept checks.

Please bring a suitable container and please park in the gravel lot at the end of Pleasant Street.

Thank you,  Peter and Ellen
