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…
WOODEN BOATS , WOODEN TRAPS AND RESPECT .
I see a little bit of the crazy in Tuffy’s eyes.

I saw the (lobster) toby brought in on your website. The old timers used to call them snow lobsters but that probably isn’t the real sceintific name for them. They only get that big and they are not the same as the lobsters we are catching. It takes a keen eye to see them and ONLY after a really big blow. The last time Hussey and I spotted a couple on the rail was after 91′ storm. They burrow deep in the mud tunnels. tuf
that was a rare find
