This is Brooklin’s Judith Ann powering into Naskeag Harbor yesterday with a full load of her recently-hoisted lobster traps. She’s the latest of many local fishing boats that will end their lobster season in November.
But, not all fishermen will be leaving the water this winter. Some will continue lobstering. Some will turn to dredging scallops soon. Others will don SCUBA equipment and dive in the cold waters to hand-harvest the choice diver scallops, which we and other neighbors will buy by the gallon. They’re beyond delicious! (Brooklin, Maine)
