1938 no-nonsense classroom film New England Fishermen shows Gloucester, schooner, steam, and diesel trawlers
At the dawn of talkies, ERPI (Electrical Research Products Inc) sought to “bring the world to the classrooms” via 16mm A/V equipment and a catalog of films. ERPI was a subsidiary of AT&T and a forerunner of Encyclopedia Britannica Films.
They produced GLOUCESTER FISHERMEN (under 9 min) in 1938 with backing from Clark University. The film’s narrator was James Brill. There was also a 1938 film titled Shell-Fishing.

Here’s James Brill narrating and before the camera in the 1946 film: FROM DEMOCRACY TO DESPOTISM, 1946, Encyclopedia Britannica Films.
Three Lantern Marine and Fishing TODAY is last day of their opening weekend and they have 15% off special sale. Grab a new fishing rod, lobster gear, clothing. Cross off your ‘back to beach’ list: they’re still some crab traps and nets on the shelves. You don’t have to wait for Fiesta for Ambie’s. He and his son are on site for Three Lantern customers. Wicked Tuna was on the scene.
Ambie is a twin. He has twins sons. AND one of his sons has twins. Three sets of twins in one family! I’ve heard fraternal twins run in families and that it’s on the maternal side. (I’ve also heard that’s rumor bunk.) Apparently multiples run on the dad’s side in this family.
Lady J. and crew helps grant a very special birthday wish. Thank you, Cap’t. Dave Jewell & brother Zach, for a great day of fishing!
On Friday my wife and I had a beautiful day taking her mum on a striper expedition via Dave Jewell’s boat, Lady J.
Gloucester Fishing Throwback- 1983 Scott Swicker, Hussey and Tuffy Fishing Wooden Lobster and Crab Traps Off An Old Wooden Novi Boat

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…
Nice sunrise the other morning to make up for the slow slow fishing! Here is Porter Bingle of http://www.binglelandscape.com casting away hoping for a fish before work.
