Who Is LobsterCraft?
Founded in 2012, LobsterCraft is the brainchild of Captain William Michael Harden. Captain Mike, as his friends and loyal followers call him, is a Coast Guard Captain and licensed Lobster fisherman. In 2006, Captain Mike purchased Jennifer Lynn, a 38’ WESMAC. A strong, sturdy lobster boat handmade in Maine, Jennifer Lynn is able to handle any weather Long Island Sound waters throw her way.
Captain Mike’s passion for the ocean evolved into a business after friends asked if he could catch, cook and prepare lobster for them. Realizing the void in fresh, local lobster, Captain Mike purchased a truck in 2012 and began rolling, literally. With the help of close friend and food connoisseur, Trond Fletcher, the LobsterCraft truck quickly gained a crowd of hungry patrons who follow the truck around Connecticut.
Today, LobsterCraft has broadened to two full service lobster roll trucks that will be operating across Connecticut, New York State, Westchester County, and Misquamicut, Rhode Island all season. And we are continuing to expand!
