This is an entertaining and exciting educational video about lobster fishing along the Maine Coast. With Lobsterman Chris Robinson as your host, you get to explore the sights, sounds and (with a little imagination) even the smells aboard the “Miss Lizzie,” a real Maine lobster boat. How traps work, what lobsters eat and how big they can grow are all part of the excitement, along with the playful antics of the animated co-host Lobster Bob, in this unique 30-minute lobster-catching adventure. A minimum order of 10 units is required. Launch date: Fall 2004.
— “There are no other DVDs in existence that provide such a wholesome, educational and entertaining treatment of how lobster are caught,” Tim Tonner of Barking Lobster Entertainment told TDmonthly. “I frequently get emails from families around the country…who thank me for producing ‘Let's Go Lobstering!’ — mostly because they learned so much about a new subject!”

TDmonthly Review:

What Is It?
“Lets Go Lobstering” is a child-friendly introduction into the world of lobster fishing. This 30-minute educational DVD follows the daily life of Lobsterman Chris as he tries to help out his friend in Vermont, where every restaurant seems to have run out of lobster. 
What We Thought
The story starts with a bumbling joe roaming from restaurant to restaurant in search of delicious lobster, which segues nicely into the world of his friend Lobsterman Chris. Chris takes kids into the world of lobstering where they’ll learn everything from the kinds of boats used for catch lobsters, to the equipment needed, to what lobsters like to eat (literally everything). While watching, I took mental notes of questions that I wanted answered. Because this is a homegrown production and not some Discovery Channel exclusive, I assumed that there would be certain items of interest that would be overlooked. I was wrong! The DVD is surprisingly comprehensive and as fun for adults as it is for kids.  I would absolutely recommend this for any public or private viewing.
Why They´ll Want It
Kids will be fascinated by these “insects” of the ocean, as there isn´t much kid-friendly lobster material out there. “Let’s Go Lobstering” does an excellent job imparting an all-around knowledge of lobstering with a style and presentation that is meant for kids, but will appeal to all ages. — Jon Arsenault, 12/4/06
