OK Time for some more pictures! Hope I don't bore everyone!

First off is some maintainance.
The buoys take a beating. They get run over by boats and the weather takes its toll too!
This one has seen better days and must be replaced or I'll loose the pot. dagnabit!

This is a fresh painted buoy ready to go...just have to add my numbers!
I burn them in with a soldering gun.

Next is bait bags and their replacement.
This one has been chewed on by some lobster...they will go right through it and the bunker slide out.

This is a shot of new bags cut to length (18") and ready for the hog rings to pinch off the end so they will hold the bait.

Here is a bait bag with two Bunker in it. For bait I will put one or two Bunker per bag depending on the Bunker size. If I don't have Bunker I will put whatever I have in the bags. Maybe a Bluefish or Fluke rack, Sea Robins...whatevr is cheap and available!

And then you must also repair the nets inside the pot. The Lobster will go right through those also!
So after all the pots are in the water and you wait a day or two or three Hopefully you will get some Lobster!

Then just steam them up! Here is a picture of 7 Lobster with a fresh steam.

Or do you spend some time shucking the meat and then doing something with that...like a hot buttered Lobster Roll.

Or perhaps some buttered lobster over linguini?
I like it all; no matter how it's prepared!

Went out this morning for some bunker and to service the pots. We've had three days of rain and wind up here and more forcasted. There was a break in the rain this morning and, I thought it would be calm...wrong! Wind was blowing about 15 knots and that makes it difficult to get the pots. My pots are around some verticle rocks and you have to come up on them in only one direction or the line will wrap around the rock. The wind will only cause misery!
Well here is a picture of a fresh bunker (aka Menhaden).

Well there were so many Blues out there they wouldn't let me get the bunker to the boat! I was skinning one tail caught bunker across the top of the water and a Blue nailed it and took the head off! I couldn't even feel the hit even while watching! I should have taken a picture of the bunker chopped in half! And that's what we call Blues up here...Choppers!
Here's two I caught this morning. One is 6.5 pounds and the other is 9.5 pounds. Dinner for tonight.
I caught them both on the bunker snag while trying to get bunker.

Jim

Now you made me hungry for lobster and it's only 8:30 in the morning.  Great pics and narration to go along with it.  I guess We'll have to make a trip up north soon for some fresh lobster.  Great job.  Smiley

This is my way of getting back for all those posts of cooked or iced down crabs! They look so good and the crabs still haven't shown up here yet! Angry They are in eastern CT and I might have to take a ride over that way. It's a shorter drive than MD! Glad you like the shots; makes a mess outta the boat but I enjoy lobstering!
