Would You do This Job?

There are lots of great jobs that involve working outside. In my opinion lobster fishing is not one of them. The lobster fishing season opens in our area on Dec 1 and lasts until May 31st. Trouble is, from early January to mid April the water in the bay is very cold and the lobster head to deep water and don't move very much, making them impossible to trap. Additionally a good part of the bay usually freezes over sometime in January making fishing impossible. So basically the season runs for the month of December and again in April and May. Not lot of time to earn a living. That is why, no matter what the weather, we see the lobster boats on the bay in December. I took the picture above on a blustery, gray day, not far from Peggy's Cove. The ocean was very rough and the boat was very close to the famous Peggy's Cove rocks. I love the ocean but there is no way you would find me doing this.
