|First soft shell lobster of the season, hopefully far more to come...|
There are fishermen who chase lobsters year round, but many like me chase the early soft shell run from late June until the towel is thrown. My efforts last usually until the end of September where my professional obligations as a teacher and after school program director get in the way. However, July and August usually are two months that I must run and gun.
So today after setting my 400th trap in one week, I decided to check the gear that I first set out last Wednesday. I'll be honest and say not much is happening, but I did manage to score the few lobsters to open the season. It will be a nice evening tonight at the Duckman household as my wife and girls will be chewing into the profit margin as five unsuspecting lobsters find the pot with boiling water.
|Trey Unluckie's Trap #0007|
|Too small to keep, Trey Luckie 0 for 1|
There is a plan in the works to liven up my blog and allow some of my followers the opportunity to somewhat be connected to the lobster fishery of Maine. The details for this game are being worked out as Trey Unluckie, who already has a trap, may be challenging several other bloggers in a three week online lobster war.
Until next time take care,
The Downeast Duck Hunter
