Clear, cool 2C from the north at15-20KPH, wind to remain, temp to rise into higher single digits, similar weather condtions for the next few days.

Three trips, a large crew, got the traps in the water without trouble. Weather conditons almost ideal, will be on the water waiting for daylight to show the buoys, will head down and ass up till we either get hauled around or dark overtakes the operation. The next great unknown is the price, lots of expense, also for many households this part of the season represents a large part of the years income.

Rob reports to the work station at 4PM, will be busy handling the catch when the boats start coming in after the day on the water.

Evening,
Bet you are a bit on the tired side of things right about now. May the traps be full, the price decent and be safe. Lots of excitement and adrenalin flowing when the season starts.
Slowly taking up my gear but doing so reluctantly this year as we are trying to keep at it as long as the weather holds and we can get out 3 days a week or so. We (me) are not as tough as you guys starting to fish mid November. I guess if I had started out that way it would be the normal way to go fishing.
Contrast between here and there starts with youth wanting to get into the lobster fishery. There are 57 young people waiting to get a license in our zone (district). It is a bit easier to get started here as you can fish the good weather in a smaller boat and still do well if you can figure out the catching part of the lobster fisher. Starting small and working up is how we all did it. An 18" Eastport skiff was the first boat for most of us along with 100 traps or so. Hardest part of any fishery is money management.
