Shot Down The Rail Of The Trapper John
Showing Captain Chris Orsillo Breaking the Traps Over The Rail, Checking For V-Notches or Eggs On The Female Lobsters and Measuring them For Minimum and Maximum Allowable Size. Mate Steve Redfern Re-Baiting The Bags, Gaffing The Buoy, and Setting the Traps up on the Stern To Be Re-Set Once The Trawl Is Finished.

Captain Chris Orsillo and Mate Steve Redfern bang out a trawl.
What is very encouraging and a testament to the conservation efforts of the lobster industry is how many short lobsters there are that will be there to be harvested as they grow. You can see how many get thrown back and it is quite a few.
Once again we used the Kayalu saltwater resistant suction RAM mount to secure the $79 Kodak Playsport Zx3 to the window behind the pilot house of the Trapper John.

The paw print is a bear paw. He tells me that Orsillo stands for little bear in Italian hence the bear paw. Then he has a claw dangling representing each one of his brothers and the two feathers hanging down represent his parents.
