Fish on Fridays

The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.

On Wednesday, Skipper James Wood (on the forklift in the video) and his crew loaded and set up twenty brand new lobster traps aboard Still Kicking at the Intershell  Seafood wharf on Commercial Street. Wood, who lobster fishes year round, was checking the latest weather forecasts before heading out to Jeffrey”s Ledge, a fishing ground that runs northeastward from Cape Ann.
