Trying their luck at diving lobster & spearfishing  for the first time ever, Ed & Lars Lewis (Asheville, NC)  had the catch of a lifetime with a 7 lb lobster, 2 red grouper and a hogfish! Mini season at its best! The nice sheriffs officers back at Geiger made sure it was big enough! They are headed to Bud & Marys Marina for the biggest lobster contest for $1000! 

Update: Lars won $1000  & turned the 4 legged half antlered beast back to live out his days on the high seas!
