SATURDAY, MAY 17/14

By: GRANDMANAN , 11:34 AM GMT on May 17, 2014

Hazy, grand temp 12C, strong SE, southerly to bring rain by later this afternoon, next several days moisture in the forecast, no sun till mid week, then back to rain.

Ladies returned from excursion on the mainland, quite successful, no large amounts of product, however they had a tour of southwestern New Brunswick, and a sleepover in the process, another annual event that seems to roll around very quickly.

Input of salmon smolt in full swing, six loads a day for the next several weeks will keep the sites busy gearing up and bringing the 100 gram fish along. Salmon cages at anchor ready to be placed on a site not too far distant in the harbour.

Will be a nasty day off shore with this wind, and no let up for the day,

There is a long wet frontal system headed our way and it's moving N with an ever so slight E movement which translates into a long rainy period for us. It seems we have gotten out of the snow anyway. Some signs of spring around-gulls feasting on clam worms and a few alewives up the brooks and rivers on the mainland. Birds of prey seem to be quite active as we are seeing a variety of them on the prowl. We had an eagle about 60 feet from the boat the other day.

Quantity of lobsters upticking just enough to keep par with the drop in price. Sure would be nice to have a slightly higher price for a while and still catch a decent amount of lobsters.

Made the trip to PE for Emily's graduation in fine style. Mom along for the ride and ceremony. At 82 she keeps moving and planning for the future.

Not many spuds planted on PE. A lot of fields without drainage are like mud puddles. The first crop is usually harvested late June and as of last week it was not even planted. I saw a lot of snow where the winter wind had blown the snow into the S part of the fields. Where the fields abutted trees and the sun did not hit the ground there was still snow along the edges.
