Hauling Back A Dredge 11/4/2004

I took a buddy out scalloping with me one day back in 2004. He filmed me hauling back a scallop dredge on my boat:


Not all days out scalloping are flat calm like the scene above. It can get rather nasty as seen from my boat in the scene below I videoed last year.


Buck Of The Week: I caught this little guy on my trail cam walking along the creek bed early one morning. Note the tall rack, broken point, palmated point and tiny brow tines. At least 12 different bucks use this travel corridor. I have all their pictures from my trail cam. It's nice to see they all survived the hunting season. Click on the image twice to enlarge.

You could have a wonderful scalloping video - editing together some of the many movies you have. This looks like it was taken on a great day for scalloping - not too cold.

I am enjoying your deer cam shots.

Yeah, that was a nice day. And the dredges came up full of scallops. Ahhhhhhh, the good old days! I need to teach my videographer how to shoot. He couldn't figure out how to stop the camera.

Yes, the good old days.Where have they gone? When scalloping started to go to hell "they" told us it was water quality to blame.If so, should'nt a solution be found by now?It's been 20 years.

I fear the commercial bay scalloping industry as we know it on Nantucket is over. I cannot see it ever rebounding. Next season looks worse than this season. I think it's finally time for everyone to face the reality here. All good things eventually come to an end. We had a good run. Time to move on.
