All along the south shore of Prince Edward Island, lobster fishers are busy as they have been for the last several weeks. Their turn has arrived. Fishers on the north shore fished lobster in the spring into summer.
Lobster traps in Darnley Basin on the north shore after the season closed
Now the south coast fishers are away each day, weather permitting, to check their traps and turn their catch into cash.
The morning the lobster fishery opened on the south shore, my friend, Jodi Arsenault was at one wharf at sunrise to watch fishers head out to set their traps. She took these pictures.
The boats were low in the water, laden with the tools of the trade.
I look at this scene with admiration, knowing how dangerous this work can be and how hard it is. It makes me appreciate lobster for more than the taste.
Thank you for the pictures, Jodi. They are beautiful!
