Here are the highlights for leasing your personal leased lobster trap with Crate to Plate® for the 2013 Season.

Dan’s full fishing season is from June 1 through November 15, 2013. The full season program buys you all the lobsters caught in your trap from the first day of the fishing season, even if you bought a month in, until the last day Dan is at sea. A half season program is for any 3 consecutive calendar months during the season from your start date. The two month program is for any 2 consecutive calendar months during the season.

The shipping season is July 1 – November 30. Final shipments for all leased traps must be received by November 30, 2013. For half season and two month leased traps all shipments must be received within 15 days of the last day of the leased term unless the end/month is November.  Then final shipments must be received by November 30th.
