Before tuna season we fish lobster

Published July 10, 2018

As much as we love tuna fishing (and we really, really do!), we also love lobster fishing.

It's a family tradition - when I was younger I fished for my dad for many years and then my dad fished with me for many years after I bought the fleet. In fact, this year we had three generations hel...

I am so pleased to be invited to be the guest speaker at the upcoming Saco Bay Tackle fishing seminar on March 25, 2017. Preparing for this seminar got me thinking about the evolution of our fishing methods here in the southern Gulf.

Back in the 70s during the first heyday of the tuna fishery, the fish were caught trolling natural mackerel baits.

Then in the 90s, using pink plastic squid on ...

I start every season fishing lobster - this year we are having a good season and ran into some folks who wanted to experience a day on the water. So I invited them to come along. They are an interesting couple travelling across the country looking for authentic and local adventures.

B.C. fishermen on PEI

Published January 25, 2015

Living on an Island is somewhat unique in the sense, knowing most of the people you meet when you're out and about. It's a small world, so in the summer on PEI when tourism brings in hundreds of thousands of visitors here, we don't always recognize the people we see on a daily basis, like we do in the winter time.

This past summer I had one of these small world experiences. I do some local adve...
