Waterfront News

I’ve been off the water for a while finishing up a job on land. I was able to get out commercial scalloping for a few days last week. The season doesn’t look promising in the least. I am able to get my five-bushel limit but I have to work at it. The days of getting my limit in one or two tows are long gone. There seems to be a bit of seed scallops showing up lately. If they survive the rust tide next summer it will be a miracle. In any event, here are a few pictures I took lately.

    More great photos. Seeing the Reinemo’s boat makes me think about how two big guys are able to coordinate their moves in a small area. They work well together. Thanks for the shots!

    Thanks, David. Yes, that is a small boat for two big guys. They do well, though. Between them, they have almost 100 years of experience out on the water. They are both accomplished boat captains.
