Captain Bob

Captain Bob and his daughter got a tuna last week. Bob drives the boat and Tara handles the fishing rod. This type of tuna, the Atlantic blue fin averages 500 lbs.  She is amazing to be able to bring those big things in by herself each season. This year the quota is one tuna so the Dover Lady will be hauled out and rested for the winter.

 

Goodbye September.....

Captain Bob loos very happy about it, Mary

If I were to get hold of a big fish like that, I will probably eat myself into another state on seared tuna. You will need a sizeable freezer and should be able to enjoy it for the next year. Bringing in a 500 pounder is not to be sneezed at - well done Tara.
Mary MacADNski: The tuna is sold to buyers and fetches a good price.

Just one fish is the quota? You're never make a living as a fisherman with that sort of match (well, I suppose it depends on what it sells for). Good work tara on hauling that out.
Mary MacADNski: Usually Mexico gives Canada it's quota, which allows two, but did not this year. Lobster fishers or fishers of other species draw from a lotto for the tuna licence. The tuna is not a fisher's whole year, just one lucky day.
i am glad that they caught a tuna this year... Bob looks happy and i'm sure that Tara is very proud of her catch... it will pay the bills over the winter...

Goodbye September Mary... my boat came out of the water last weekend....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I remember when Bob would catch a tuna in the old days. She would say, Yeah! Lots of new clothes for school this year!"
500 lbs of tuna should fetch a good price!
Mary MacADNski: Yes, getting chosen in the tuna lotto is a good day, catching one, a better day.
500 pounds--amazing!
Mary MacADNski: They are much larger too. Five hundred is only an average. There are thousand pound tunas.
