Many fishermen are calling it a season and bringing in their traps now for winter storage. Here we have “Blue Sky” waiting to off-load her traps at the Town Dock yesterday.
Long Set’s traps are being unloaded there.
The traps will be stored “on the hard” until next summer, often on the fishermen’s properties.
On the other hand, some fishermen will continue to trap lobsters, dredge for scallops, or dive for scallops during the winter.
