Just now! Lobster boats drift waiting to buy bait in Gloucester harbor.

20131021_065552 With herring fishery in area 1A closed fresh bait and tempers are getting a little short. At least one of these boats was turned away due to the bait dealer reserving supply for his regular vessels. Many lobster boats were buying cheap dragger bait this year and may find themselves left out when it comes time to buy bait stored by regular bait suppliers.   06:40

At least one of these boats was turned away due to the bait dealer reserving supply for his regular vessels. Many lobster boats were buying cheap dragger bait (often unreported and untaxed) this year and may find themselves left out when it comes time to buy bait stored by regular bait suppliers.
