Dave and Maddy

Dave is the Captain of the Lady J, which runs fishing charters throughout the year. Dave also provides lobsters to Captain Joes. Lady J Fishing Charters offers full and half day trips for bluefish, striped bass, cod, haddock, and tuna, and kids are encouraged–for an adventure of a lifetime! After reading about Dave’s charters I’d love to plan a trip with my son!

From Captain Dave’s website about the Lady J. Fishing Charters:

Hi, I am Captain Dave Jewell owner and operator of the Lady J.  I would like to welcome you aboard my second home to experience what life is like as a professional fisherman. To me there is nothing better or more rewarding than a day at sea loading the boat with the best New England has to offer. 

It is my mission to bring you the excitement that fishing offshore Gloucester brings me each day. Give us the opportunity to show you how great fishing can be and we will not disappoint. Just one trip and you’ll be hooked!

Dave and Wyatt

Old Anchor Estimated From the 1800’s For Sale

Dave Jewell aboard the Lady J got this anchor snarled up with one of his lobster trawls.  he brought it to the industrial boom over at the State fish pier where they hauled it off and now it sits at the top of our driveway here at Captain Joe and Sons.  It stands about 6 feet tall and many people like to use them in front of a seafood restaurant or business.  if you are interested in it, Dave is willing to sell it.  Let me know.

Our Lobsterman Dave Jewell Aboard The Lady J Snarls A Huge Ancient Anchor In A Lobster Trawl

He had to tie it off to the side of the boat because it was too heavy to get aboard with his lobster trap hauler and davit.

So he brought it to the State Fish Pier where he hooked it up to the industrial sized boom and lifted it enough to get aboard the deck.

Bidding starts at $500.  Who wants it?

153 Miles and and 18 Hour Steam Dave Jewell and Crew Land Two Fat Bluefin Tuna

Heading out a couple of days ago Dave and his crew head out for an 18 hour steam of  153 miles to catch themselves a nice pay day. One 800 lber and one 650 these tuna will command a nice price in Japan.

When Dave headed out he was a bit nervous because where they have to go to catch these fish it’s a long way out and there’s no place to run and hide if a storm whips up.  It is where there are warm ocean currents and cold water intersecting and it can produce nasty storms seemingly out of the blue and without much warning.

Video coming tomorrow

Thanks to the Reality Fan Forum we can identify the contestants that I captured as they embarked on the first leg of The Amazing Race 17 on our lobster boats right across from the dock here in East Gloucester.  This may help fans identify which boats their favorite teams are on as we learn more about who is who.

When the first episode starts you can look for your favorite teams by which are on the boats as follows- Purple and Yellow Team on The Jennie C (Dark Green Lobster Boat skippered by Tom Lupo).

The Lime Green Team who are on the Tuna.com (a black tuna boat) and were in the lead according to my wife as they left Eastern Point and headed down East Main Street Gloucester within the first hour of the race  they were the drop dead gorgeous all female team according to first hand accounts.

The Dark Green Team of Connor Lawrence Diemand-Yauman and   Jonathan Schwartz .  Both Princeton Class of ’10, could they be Team Nassoons? (A Princeton a capella singing group). Credit to David Walter of The Ink for the COMPLETE REVEAL via Reality Fan Forum also the Blue team aboard the Karyn D (a Rockport based lobster boat) skippered by Ryan Drohan.

CBS Amazing Race 17 Start Gloucester Ma Drop off Bus With Blacked Out Windows And Staging Area

As promised we have more Amazing Race 17 coverage from the very start when the teams were let out of the bus.  If you click on the first pic it will enlarge to the full sized photo to get you right up close to the action.  The second pic is a version that will fit in your browser window when you click on it.

For all of the Good morning Gloucester Amazing Race 17 Kick Off Coverage with over 8 posts with pictures and videos to date click here

As you can see when you click on the larger picture the name of the bus company is M&L Transit.  It looks as if the windows have a black layer of sheathing that is velcro over where the windows are the entire length of the bus.

In this second set of pictures the teams have disembarked the bus and are waiting to walk down the gangway to get on the lobster boats.  First hand accounts say that there were production people among the contestants reminding them to not talk among one another.  The contestants were not supposed to even speak to their respective teammates at this point.

I’d like to ask if could people not simply copy and paste this entire post onto message boards and instead copy the url of this blog post to share.  Lots of work goes into blogging and at the very least good form is to post a sentence with a link back to a newspaper or blog post saying for the rest of the story go here- http://www dot xyz story dot com

Now for the good stuff, some more insider dish on the process of how they get the contestants to the start of the race!

From what was overheard the contestants are flown in on private chartered jet with the windows blacked out so they have no idea where they are landing.  They are then ushered directly into a bus which has completely blacked out windows and they are not supposed to talk to each other at all.  They got off the bus at The State Fish Pier In Gloucester which is where I started taking video and where they boarded the fishing boats.  With the weather being unseasonably warm they could have easily mistaken Gloucester for a warmer climate port.  You can click on this link to see all the pictures of what takes place at The State Fish Pier in Gloucester

More to come later……
