RAYMOND, MAINE- A lobster fisherman in Maine caught a rare bright orange lobster and its the second time he's pulled an odd one from the sea.

Bill Coppersmith says he caught the rarity in the Gulf of Maine and experts say the odds of catching one are one in several million.

He nicknamed it "Captain Eli" after his grandson and it'll be kept at a restaurant and seafood market for a month before its released. Coppersmith also caught a rare white lobster in 1997 and the odds of that are one in 100-million.
