Can someone tell me where I can buy live local lobster for the lowest price? I live in mid-LA. Thanks!

        99 Ranch is good. I also heard How's has great live lobster specials around father's day.

          Usually 99 Ranch only carries Maine lobster. I have only seen the store in Alhambra carrying local lobster. I just found some at Pacific Fresh Fish in Downtown for $13.95/lbs. Gonna head there this Saturday.

            The 99 Ranch in Rowland Heigts and West Covina carries both. But kinda far from you!

                Is Seawin open to the public? If so, do you know what their hours are?

                    Went to Pacific Fresh Seafood on Saturday and got live spiny lobster for $12.95 a pound. They take cash only so take note! The price seems to vary from day-to-day so call several places and shop around.
