Lobster Mini Season, Day 1

Got our limit in 30 minutes!

I love lobster mini season!  There are lots of tourists in town contributing to the coffers of our local merchants, and everyone is in a festive mood.

We don’t charter fish during the two days of mini season.  We take our own mini vacation and go lobstering with friends.

It’s been pretty windy all week, making for choppy conditions on the bayside where we hunt for bugs.  I had planned to take our friends, Chris and Kristy, and their young sons, but it just would not have been comfortable for them.

So, it was just my deckhand, Jason Bell, his brother, Alex, and me on the boat today.

We hit one of my spots, got our limit of 18 lobster in 30 minutes and left a couple dozen bugs for tomorrow.

These are big bugs, folks.  Alex is a big boy and you can see the lobster he’s holding is in no way small…
