Lobster bands and banding tool. As the traps come up from the ocean floor, hopefully full of lobsters the lobsters that need to be gauged for size get tossed into the slots and then measured and the ones that are legal sized get banded and thrown into the holding tank til they get in to offload.

There’s nothing quite like that feeling when the last load of lobster gear comes out of the water for the season.
A long grinding year of hard core lobstering comes to an end and the boys enjoy the fruits of their labor.
It was that day today for the crew of the Degelyse.
I’ll tell you right now, I don’t care what you do for a living but when you start bitching about the air conditioning being improperly set at your office, take a pill and think about the horrible wet rough weather our guys are out lobstering in today.
EARNING THAT PAPER TODAY BOYS!
Tuffy explains some of the anatomical features of a lobster

To Make clear the following is only satire and I’ll take responsibility for people not from around the waterfront misunderstanding
I was wrong to assume that because I predominantly write our hyperlocal blog for our Cape Ann residents that people would understand how preposterous the notion that you could have time to move all the lobster gear even if they knew where the lobsters were released and to set it and for those lobsters which were probably miles away from that location would ever get caught.
I was obviously wrong and people did not understand with the outlandishness of it all that it was a joke.
It’s on me.
What I am happy for is that the releasing of the lobster story which would have been a simple story largely forgotten by now has gotten huge legs and all the positives of Buddhism are highlighted. For that I am grateful.

Receiving the coordinates of where the lobsters were released by Buddhist monks, the boys went out yesterday and hauled the lobster traps they set all over that ocean bottom and caught exactly 534 lobsters, the precise number the monks released.
