Capt. Russell Sherman (burgandy t-shirt) and his crew splice in F/V Lady Jane’s new nets after they lost the last ones on what “might have been an anchor.” Russell’s wife Chris (holding t-shirt, with the Northeast Seafood Coalition (http://northeastseafoodcoalition.org) says they worked around the clock to replace the torn nets. They expected to leave soon for several days, looking for cod, among other species.
