Wicked Tuna Special on Cape Ann TV TOMORROW (WED) @ 6:30 P.M.

Don’t miss the premiere of this very special Local Music Seen with Allen Estes tomorrow night at 6:30 on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.  This special was shot on location at Alchemy Bistro (at the same time as Nat Geo was shooting) and Mile Marker One.  Allen gets some of the Wicked Tuna captains to tell him what music they play aboard ship for good luck catching fish.  Then he performs his Howard Blackburn hit “Not With Ya Hands” for them.  Mix in a Wicked Tuna Seafood Throwdown and a few other surprises for a show you don’t want to miss.  Here’s a short preview of the energy you can expect from this show!

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.

Kathy and Marty had a brief but pleasant visit with Peter Mullen, owner of the 165 foot midwater trawler-seiner Western Venture and the 109 foot Osprey.

The boats fish for herring and mackerel, often on Georges Bank, and market their catch locally and in Boston for bait and overseas (Mediterranean countries and Africa) for human consumption.

New York City Weekend with My Family

Liv and Alex HauckLiv and Alex Hauck from the rooftop at the Wythe Hotel, Brooklyn

Our daughter Liv planned a fabulously fun and wonderful weekend in New York City and Brooklyn to celebrate her brother Alex’s 21st birthday.  The weekend ended with an afternoon matinee of “Chicago.” I only took a few iPhone snapshots as it rained nearly constantly, but here’s a little Vine from the gorgeous Ambassador Theatre on Broadway.

Phyllis A doing things right!

Mary Barker Submits-

Hi Joey,

What a difference a day(or in this case a week) makes.  These photos of the Phyllis A were taken 6 days apart.   The snow storm was March 5, the lovely sunny day March 11.

The board of directors meeting was March 15.   Now I have to say, this is a group of people who know how to have a meeting!  Gloria Parsons greeted us in the morning with 

fresh home made cinnamon rolls and fruit, and of course coffee and tea.   Then for lunch Gloria made some wonderful homemade stews, salad, and to die for homemade cream puffs!   

Gloria is a seriously good cook!  I think I’m going to gain a bit of weight on this board.  

Among the topics for the board meeting was planning for public events to be held in April.  Events will be posted soon.  I know many of the Phyllis A events feature

Gloria’s cooking – well worth the trip if just for that!

Another Local Lobster Trap Tag Shows Up On Perranporth Beach Cornwall England!

Dear Joe,

I wrote to you in November 2012 about a fishing tag from the Net Profit, from when it was owned by the late Joe Ciaramitaro.

Last Thursday I found a tag from F/V Endeavour. When I looked it up on Google it looks as though it comes from your area, so I thought that you might be interested. I don’t find many of the rectangular tags, all the ones that I have found are mounted on a board on my garage wall. I thought that you might know some of their owners or where they come from.

As you will see from the photo we do find quite a lot of lobster trap tags. Here in Perranporth  Cornwall most of the them are from Newfoundland and Labrador. We have had a lot of storms this winter & unusually high tides for the last three months. This has resulted in large quantities of plastic being washed up – some from across the Atlantic & a lot from more local places.

Best Wishes,

Chris Easton
