Tonight (Sunday 8/18/13) Janet and I went to the final hour of the Waterfront Festival. After a brief stop in the gallery, we decided to take our cars to Captain Carlo’s for dinner, and on the way to our cars, Janet pointed out a large motor yacht tied up at the Fort. I immediately saw the possibilities of an interesting post of our old harbor and what’s ahead in the future, so I told her I’d meet her after taking a few shots from behind Latitude 43.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw a very large tuna being unloaded at the Intershell dock. The tuna boat was Second Source of Marblehead. Even the Intershell fish cutter/processor (orange foul weather pants) was taking photos of this exceptional fattie monster tuna.
It looks like they were in awe of this fish. The Intershell employee is holding a fillet knife to cut out samples to check for quality, and they’re all hoping it won’t fall on them. That would be bad – real bad. Taking into account the relative size of the fishermen, we estimate this tuna to be at least 12 feet in length. Tomorrow, I’m walking down to Intershell and getting us a piece of this beautiful giant for the grill. This island we live on is very, very special.
