Pulling the traps: Captain Shelley Deagle says the season looks positive

Lobster fishermen on Prince Edward Island’s north shore are hopeful today’s catch will give them an indication of what the two-month spring season may bring.  Captain Shelley Deagle is one of the fishermen who headed out before sunrise from Naufrage, P.E.I., on the Miss Shawna Lee to start pulling traps with her cork, Dougie MacKinnon. The captain said there were lobsters in the traps, adding that’s a good sign of the season to come.  “They’re talking a good price again this year,” said Deagle referring to a meeting held Friday with the fish buyer. click here to view the images, and read the story 19:49
