Stevie Aboard The Lady Jane Mends The Net

Stevie is a guy that’s worked his whole life as a fisherman.  One of the old timers. I wonder when the Sectors get put into place if there will be a place for career crew members aboard fishing boats like Stevie or if it will be a series of hired hands just punching in for a pay check.   Not really caring about really learning the trade, waiting for their paycheck from some large corporation which bought up the permits.
It doesn’t look good for the independent fisherman.

Stevie Mending The Net Aboard The Lady Jane

Here is Stevie mending the net after “making damage”.  “Making damage” is a term used when the net goes over some hard bottom on the oceans floor and it tears the net.

I wonder when the last of these old timers are gone if we will lose those terms.  Ringo, Stevie and Russell are all over 60 years old.

Lady Jane

The Stern of Russell Sherman’s Lady Jane.  Over the next few days there will be a series of pictures of the crew- Stevie, Mikey, Russell, and Ringo.  Russell was one of the Gloucester captains featured on “After The Catch” the show with the roundtable discussions with the captains from “The Deadliest Catch”
