Shooting into the sun can bring out details you’d never see otherwise. This shot was taken last week. I never get tired of Gloucester sunsets. —Sharon
The heavy monofilament line is wrapped around the spool. It goes up and through the blocks and out the stern of the boat with clips of mono and individual hooks on them. Hopefully each hook has a fish on it!
As always with any of the pictures on the blog if you click on them it will bring you to the flicker page where it is hosted. There you can select the option “all sizes” above the picture for the full size version in which you can see the pictures full size and in greater clarity.
See if you can figure out where this is and where the photo was taken from. Good luck!

Allen and Stefan Forbes’s “One More Dead Fish” tells the heartwrenching story of environmentally-friendly handline fishermen fighting to survive in a rapidly globalizing industry. In fascinating interviews with local fishermen, government officials, biologists, and industry CEO’s, we learn about complex regulatory, legislative, and environmental issues. This film grounds the viewer in a clear historical context as it explains one of the world’s great environmental disasters, the destruction of the Grand Banks fisheries. And in examining the often Orwellian language of the multinational fishing industry, “One More Dead Fish” explores the media’s failure to report on the true environmental costs of globalization. This film points the way toward saving the world’s fisheries before it’s too late.
Join Joe and Helen Garland and Ron Gilson after the film for what is sure to be an impassioned discussion on the state of the fishing industry.
Other than the obvious hauling and setting from the stern of the boat can any of our commercial fishermen readers comment on any other differences between how they longline out of Naples versus Gloucester?
Longlining explained aboard the Donna Marie. For any commercial longliners that watch the video feel free to jump in and correct any of my mistakes from the video. I’m not a fisherman but would like this to be as acuurate as possible. Just leave a comment below the video if you would.

Congratulations from your Good Morning Gloucester Family!
Ariel and Dave were married yesterday.
These photos are from Frank Ciolino (Thanks, Frank!) at the “Winter Races” fundraiser for Gloucester’s International Dory Races.
Committee President Jim Tarantino told me this morning that he’s estimating that the event raised $2000 towards the $30,000 needed for 4 new dories and the 2009 operating expenses.
Acknowledgment awards were presented to Sen. Bruce Tarr, R-Gloucester, the schooner Thomas E. Lannon and Gorton’s.
Jim also wants everyone to know that his group not only coordinates races held throughout the summer, but also provides free lessons and other educational programs for the city’s middle school children and others interested in dory rowing.
The International Dory events calendar can be seen here.
So if you are interested in rowing (great exercise!) and would like to get out on the water with the experts, be sure to check this out!
