PHOTOS: Lobster season Dumping Day in Digby

Lobster boats loaded with traps and gear steamed out of Digby Harbour for the 8:45 a.m start of the annual lobster fishing season in the western end of LFA 35 on Friday, Oct. 14. Harbour manager Ed Chisholm estimated nearly 75 lobster boats left the harbour for the Bay of Fundy with several dropping the first few strings in the Basin before heading out through Digby Gut. “This morning’s departure went smoothly considering the large number of boats leaving the wharf,” Chisholm said. “Most fishermen have been here before so know what they are dealing with.” Digby is the last wet port as you head up the Bay of Fundy and fishermen from other parts of LFA 35 make use of Digby port during the lobster season for that reason Chisholm said.
