Secret Spot for Fresh Florida Lobster in Lantana

Every week, I look for it: the giant sign on the side of U.S. 1 in Lantana, its bright-red lettering with the words Fresh Lobsters Today scrawled in messy handwriting.

It means Capt. Fuge Hickman and his two sons, Bruce and David, have a fresh catch of Florida spiny lobsters for sale. At just $7 per pound, it's the deal of the day -- and the freshest one you'll find this side of the Caribbean.
