Weatherman predicting showers, appears Mother Nature is getting inline to prove him correct. A sultry, overcast morning, not a breath of wind. A heron at the waters edge casting a reflection twice as long as he is. Showers for next couple of days with sun for Wednesday.

Rob got underway on the first boat yesterday, no problem getting up and waiting for his hosts. Emily enjoyed the family gatherings, always a good time, lots of food and fellowship.

The herring news a bit more positive with several wiers being seined over the weekend, no word on how the seiners are doing.

Good Morning Rob.
Your sure right about the price of seafood increasing by the time it gets to the consummer. The price of fresh lobster here is over triple what the fishermen get.
Have a good day.

Morning David, amazing how the price increases from the boat to the supermarket just up the road. This observation long a bone of contention, from all producers. The 300% seems to be the margin, no matter what the wharf price may be at the time.

Over the weekend socializing with my lobster fishing friend, I go with him a few days at the start of the season. Just to remind myself that I am not cut out for the day in and day out grind of the business,especially in the winter. I mentioned your comments about price and bait, he attends the cross border lobster meetings. He mentioned Bruce CHAMBERLAIN as being from Cranberry Island they have broke bread together a few times, and more than a little conversation I would say.

The Bluegrass Music must lend itself to saltwater as when they are touring in the area, quite often they will come over for a show and little R&R. Locally a hardcore bunch, and a number of folks make the trip from the mainland when they are here.
