Crates of lob­ster are off­loaded at the Clark’s Har­bour wharf from the Saratoga. While land­ings have been down for the first few weeks of the season, the price con­tin­ues to be record set­ting for the open­ing month with the shore price in the $9 to $9.25 range be­fore Christmas. Aside from de­lay­ing the start of the season for five days, the weather had been co­op­er­a­tive for the most part, with fish­er­men get­ting out the ma­jor­ity of days dur­ing the first three weeks of the season.
