Change and Conflict in the Gloucester Fishing Industry Featuring Wicked Tuna’s Dave Marciano, Lady Jane Skipper Russell Sherman

Molly Ferrill came down the dock last May. She also did a time lapse video from our dock which you can see below and went out lobstering for a day with Tommy Burns, the same Tommy Burns who took out Ben Grenon. You can see those videos below her latest.

Molly fared a whole lot better than Ben did aboard Tommy’s boat as you will see comparing the two videos.

Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?

A couple of weeks ago the New England Aquarium took possession of a calico lobster and was touting it through their marketing efforts as a one in 30 million lobster.

Either the numbers they are using are off or we here at the dock are the luckiest lobster dealers on the planet and should be stocking up on megabucks tickets because we get 2-5 a year.

I’m pegging the over/under on number of speckled lobsters that are landed at our dock this year at 3.

Here’s the first one I’ve seen this year landed June 1st by our Fisherman Mark Davis aboard the Holy Mackerel-

Just another mutant to add to the gallery of blue, marbled, albino, speckled, yellow, double clawed, triple clawed and other odd lobsters landed here at our dock, Captain Joe and Sons.

Molly Ferrill’s Time Lapse From The Dock

The timelapse I did the other day was performed differently.  I took video footage, imported it into windows live movie maker and sped it up 32 times.

Molly set her camera up using an intervalometer, taking lots and lots of still photos taken at a specific time apart, imported those into iMovie, stitched them together to make a timelapse of photos.

Very cool.

Video- Blue Lobster Landed In Gloucester By Lobster Boat The Connemara Bay

Kevin O’Maley and his crew swung by the dock with a Blue Lobster that they caught just off the Breakwater when lobstering today. Being the stand-up men they are, they will be bringing it to The Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center so that the community can enjoy checking it out.

Kevin and the boys also charter their boat for full or half day fishing trips. You can find them online at www.cbcharters.com

Go to the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center to check it out. info here-

Thank You Kevin and crew for bringing the lobster to us to share with our readers.
