Lobster Caught in Dredge/Dock Work

While scalloping way up harbor the other day, I caught a lobster in one of my dredges. I caught lobsters while scalloping around the West Jetty before but never have I caught one up harbor. And years ago I remember catching big starfish in my dredges all along Hulbert Ave and the West Jetty. Sometimes I would catch more starfish than scallops. I wonder what happened to all the starfish. I guess if there are no scallops for the starfish to eat, they will move out of the area.

There has been some activity around the waterfront lately. A new walkway has been installed between the Angler's Club and Commercial Wharf. I'm not sure who is doing the work. Usually it has always been AGM Marine but I don't see them or their familiar barge and crane doing the work this time. The new walkway is a nice addition to the waterfront. I tested it out yesterday.

Don't forget to scroll down to the end of this blog entry and check out the new feature: The Buck Of The Week captured on my trail cam.

Buck Of The Week. Here, I set up my trail cam on a tree overlooking a creek. I captured this big old buck walking down the middle of the creek early one morning. There are a few things to take note of. Notice the two broken points, the tall brow tines, and the grass caught in his right antler trailing down his neck. That is a trash bag on the creek bank to the right of the buck. Click on the picture for a larger image. Click again for an even larger view.
