My daughter Liv is home visiting for a few days. What does she request for her birthday dinner?
Why Captain Joe and Sons fresh caught local straight-off-the-boat melt-in-your-mouth fabulously sweet lobsters, of course!
Gloucester Fishing Throwback- 1983 Scott Swicker, Hussey and Tuffy Fishing Wooden Lobster and Crab Traps Off An Old Wooden Novi Boat
Photos from Tuffy
If you don’t think those old wooden lobster traps weighed a whole hellova lot more than today’s wire gear then you don’t know much about then and now lobstering.
Look how skinny Swicker was back then…
Check Out Bodin Historic Photo and get you some Gloucester Swag.
I use the Gloucester mug he gave me for my birthday every day of the week.
Dave Jewell lands a blue lobster, Joey drives the forklift, and shows us how to tell the difference between a male and female lobster–set to a trio of Bruce Springsteen songs from the Seeger Sessions–just another day at Captain Joe and Sons!

My strategy: claws and tails removed and chilled in the fridge overnight. (The knuckles and tamale the cook eats.) Then tomorrow morning take the meat out of the claws an tails, chop to the size that would fit on a crostini, mix with Mayo (just to barely coat) a touch of salt and bagged on ice in the cooler.
Crostinis will be fresh baggettes cut less than half inch slices and toasted in oven. A piece of fresh garlic gets rubbed onto the toasted piece and bagged.
Assembly at party the lobster meat into a chilled bowl and crostini around the edge on a larger platter. Am I missing something? (Besides Rubber Duck. She is not in the photo since she needs some tubby time.)
Thank you so much for being willing to entertain 26 students from the Harborlight-Stoneridge Montessori School this afternoon! The two-week summer session that they’ve been participating in has followed the theme of "Marine Biology and Maritime History." They have been incredibly fortunate to spend most days on the water engaged in a variety of hands-on activities. Today they had to opportunity to explore Gloucester Harbor to learn about the rich fishing industry and to see up close the large variety of vessels that call Gloucester their home.
Last week was spent learning about plankton, mollusks, echinoderms, fish, and crustaceans while conducting research at sea. After having hauled traps and having learned about lobsters, it was important to me that they see "what happens next." I really wanted the students to see a working waterfront and you very kindly supplied that opportunity! As expected, you were incredibly patient with their questions and able to hold their attention while refining their knowledge. They felt at ease with you right away and would have gladly stayed for hours had they the chance.
Not only do you now have 26 new FOBs, you’ve also helped this group of children better appreciate an industry that has been incredibly foreign to many of them. To quote one of your new friends as he boarded the bus to head home, "That place is so cool!"
Thanks so much!

I went to a friends cookout and another friend of mine Darren Surette made this giant 20 some pound cheese burger. I told him at my next cookout I would have to out do his burger. So with much thought i decided to make a 6 foot lobster roll. Joe Virgillio made the 6ft roll for me and 30 lobsters later a 6ft lobster roll was born. What a sweet sound it was when Darren spoke those words~~ Yes, Susie you won !!
