Fishing Gear at Milk Island From Adam Bolonsky

Adam submits-

Fishing gear at Milk Island. Milk Island’s a cormorant and blackback seagull nesting ground. Lots of of fishing gear washes up on its lengthy gravel bar running north towards Rockport. By August  adult blackbacks start cannibalizing their young – grabbing fledglings by the neck and drowning them, dragging them ashore to pull them apart.

The lobster gear uses non-floating line, required to prevent whale entanglement and a source of large capital outlay for local lobstermen.

Shot with a home-made OliviaTech jib and a cheap $10 wide-angle lens. The guy who presents the OliviaTech jib is sort of a goofball, but I like his presentation because it leaves no doubt about how to build the jib for about $40.

SELL-OUT ALERT: CASPIAN’S Pre-Sale nearly sold out in 1 day — if you want tickets get them now

You may or may not know that major rock stars live right down the road in Beverly, MA.  CASPIAN, performed at Beverly’s Block Party last year, but mostly they tour the world.  On October 18, they’re celebrating their 10th year as a band with a special hometown anniversary concert at The Larcom Theatre.  Yesterday at noon, they offered pre-sale tickets to their fan-base, who turn out to be highly loyal — meaning the show is nearly sold out barely 24 hours later (most of the orchestra was sold out within an hour).  That’s what I mean when I say, “rock stars.”  So if you want to go to this once-in-a-decade event, get balcony seats now (right here).
