Clear, breeze 10-15KPH from the west, temp 1C, only a high of 2C in the forecast. Similar weather conditions for most of next week, at least give the fisherman a respit from the high winds.
Still no definative price for lobster, price statements $4-4.50, most at $4.25. These prices are marginal at best, no great enthusiasm evident in the fishery so far, due to weather and price. Most of the fleet out yesterday, however a signifigant number did not give it a shot for the reasons mentioned.
The catch is down overall, however some fellows numbers best ever and continue to be so. No rhyme or reason for the disparity, just having traps in the right spot has a lot to do with it.
Both children out overnight, pretty quiet around here when that happens.
