LOBSTER SEASON



Early mornings, low tide

Nylon rope, calloused hands

Herring nets, bait, five pots to a line, ballasts

Seagulls, swallows, sandpipers

Dory, oars, outboard motor, bailing water

Catch a buoy, haul a trap, band a claw

Gaffe, foghorn, flares, life-jackets

North-west winds, choppy waters, seasickness, fog
