Welcome The Latest Lobster Boat To The Gloucester Fleet- Pete Libro’s Cabaret V

DSC00653

The Cabaret V Is a Beast.   47 feet long and beamy as a bastard.   Big and roomy with plenty of deck space to shift gear and lobster like a lobster boat should- with the ability to move large numbers of lobster traps to areas where the lobster will be next.

On a small boat you are limited with the amount of gear you can shift and the weather you can fish.  On the Cabaret V Pete and his dedicated crew can fish rough weather comfortably and chase the lobsters by moving large amounts of lobster traps in front of the lobster moves to the deeper water and off shore.

Congrats Pete.

Enjoy Your Day Knowing Our Lobstermen Are Fishing Some Nasty Ass Weather Today

I’ll tell you right now, I don’t care what you do for a living but when you start bitching about the air conditioning being improperly set at your office, take a pill and think about the horrible wet rough weather our guys are out lobstering in today.

EARNING THAT PAPER TODAY BOYS!

Video- The Crew Of The Degelyse Sets Out To Catch Liberated Buddhist Lobsters

To Make clear the following is only satire and I’ll take responsibility for people not from around the waterfront misunderstanding
I was wrong to assume that because I predominantly write our hyperlocal blog for our Cape Ann residents that people would understand how preposterous the notion that you could have time to move all the lobster gear even if they knew where the lobsters were released and to set it and for those lobsters which were probably miles away from that location would ever get caught.

I was obviously wrong and people did not understand with the outlandishness of it all that it was a joke.

It’s on me.

What I am happy for is that the releasing of the lobster story which would have been a simple story largely forgotten by now has gotten huge legs and all the positives of Buddhism are highlighted. For that I am grateful.

You know the craziest part? So many people think I’m hatin on Buddhism, but I download a Buddhhism podcast from this guy that Lindsay Crouse recommended that I listen to- Lama Marut.
Check him out, the guy makes a lot of sense.

Receiving the coordinates of where the lobsters were released by Buddhist monks, the boys went out yesterday and hauled the lobster traps they set all over that ocean bottom and caught exactly 534 lobsters, the precise number the monks released.

We used the Kayalu saltwater safe RAM camera mount to secure the Kodak Zx3 Saltwater proof camera to the aft window of the wheelhouse to record this.

Thank you and come again next year Mr Buddhist monks, we would like to invite you back again and again to purchase our lobsters and “restock the pond”

GLOUCESTER, Mass. — Instead of plunging headfirst to their death in a pot of boiling water, 534 live lobsters escaped the dinner plate and belly flopped to freedom into the dark waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

A group of Tibetan Buddhists flanked the sides of a whale-watching boat at dusk on Wednesday, sprayed the lobsters with blessed water, clipped the bands binding their dangerous claws and gently released them one by one into the deep water below.

Video How Your Lobsters Were Harvested

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.

Filmed using the Kodak Playsport Zx3 and Mounted to the Boat with The Kayalu RAM Saltwater Proof Mount

Banging Out A Lobster Trap Trawl Aboard The Trapper John

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.
