You may remember Tony Gross from his pictures in the Boatyard-

or when he chopped off the tip of his finger and became a “cull”

Well the other day Tony was hauling lobster traps and off his gear fell a seahorse which are pretty rare to catch up in our waters. His lovely wife Abbie sent us the picture-

Hi Joey, here’s a photo of the seahorse that came up with Tony’s trawl

Tony Gross’ Swedish Coffee Bread

Every Christmastime Tony Gross, the skipper of the lobsterboat F/V Sandollar makes a ridiculous number of Swedish Coffee Bread loaves and gives them out to friends.  I made the mistake and called it Nisu but because the recipe comes from an elder in Tony’s family he insists it be called Swedish Coffee Bread.

It’s delicious and best eaten within a day of cooking.  I sure am glad I’m on the list of those who get one every year!

Tony Gross Is A Cull

I knew something was wrong when Tony’s wife Abby pulled up to the dock with his lobsters.  Abby never comes down the dock but this day was different.

Tony Got his finger stuck in the hauler and it ripped the tip off.  Not good.

CJ Morgante Day Three Aboard The Stanley Thomas

Y’all may not believe this but CJ refereed the New England Revolution/DC United match last night at Foxboro, got done reviewed the game tape and then hopped in his car at 2:00AM to get to Gloucester to go fishing on his Fourth Boat this morning at 5:00AM.

He went out lobstering with Tony Gross this morning at 5:00AM aboard The Sandollar. We’ll have a report on how he is holding up when he gets in tonight. So far he has been an iron man.

Tony took four boxes of bait this morning, showing no mercy at all for CJ’s schedule. As long as Tony has unloaded here I don’t think he has ever taken four boxes of bait (the previous most amount of bait being three boxes).
