Nice lobster...for Cali.

A massive 18 pound lobster was caught off the shores of Huntington Beach, California. A five pound lobster alone is considered a trophy crustacean. It's believed the lobster is about 30 years-old.

Joseph Ali went diving for dinner after closing down is shop. He said people thought he was drunk wrestling in the water with the beast. Ali was in about 15 feet of water chasing after a smaller lobster when the monster latched onto him.

Nice catch, Joseph, but here in Maine we like our lobsters yah know...with claws.
