Cook’s Lobster House is situated on Bailey Island in the Mid Coast region of Maine. Since 1955 the lobstermen of Bailey’s Island have been landing their catch on the docks at Cook’s Lobster House. Cooks ships the lobster throughout the United States and Canada in addition to being enjoyed in their Restaurant. The waters surrounding Bailey’s Island are deep and cold. These waters are perfect for some of the best lobster fishing in Maine.
The day starts early for the local lobstermen here at Cooks. Lobstermen climb aboard their boats before the sun rises. They head out for what can be a sixteen hour day with the hope of a big catch. The faint glow of an approaching sunrise over the Cribstone Bridge awakens the seabirds to a new day. The air is moist with the smell of salt and diesel as the boats start-up. The lobstermen begin their assault on the sea. Casco Bay is their destination and they don’t have far to go because Bailey Island jets thirteen miles out into the bay. Connected to the mainland by a series of islands and bridges ending with Baileys Island, a two-mile long by ½ mile wide rock-bound paradise
After a long day on the water the lobster is brought to the docks and weighed. The lobster is held in wooden crates each holding about 90 lobsters each. They are immediately placed into the salt water holding tanks on the docks or tied onto the docks and submerged in the sea. The process then begins of separating the size and shell hardness of the lobsters. Once the lobsters are picked through they are shipped to their destination or brought to the restaurant where they are put into the restaurants salt water holding tanks until a guest orders one for a meal.
The secret to a great lobster is the freshness and the amount of time that the lobster has been kept out of the sea water. The longer out of the natural environment the less succulent the lobster. Cook’s Lobster House prides itself with having a lobster come in and served the same day. Curt Parent the owner of the famous landmark restaurant says “there is no fresher lobster anywhere unless you eat it under water. We also ship our lobsters next day internationally, so that if you have a Cook’s Lobster House lobster you have the freshest lobster you can get”.
