As Lobster prices soar, Marshfield lobstermen stay docked

Boats piled high with buoys and lobster traps sat moored in Green Harbor on Tuesday. Normally, the 65-degree day would be perfect for fishing, but it’s been nearly three months since the 45 commercial fishing boats in Marshfield have caught any lobster and the harbor buzzed with fishermen eager to get back in the water. Lobster traps are banned from 3,000 nautical miles of waters in Cape Cod Bay and parts of Massachusetts Bay between Feb. 1 and May 1 to decrease the likelihood of endangered North Atlantic Right whales from entangling themselves in lobster lines. The ban takes about 300 lobster boats offline,,,>click to read<08:34

Late season views of Green Harbor from Boston Harbor Beacon

Boating season is largely over in Green Harbor, with the exception of the commercial guys. I took a trip down here on Saturday morning after not really spending much time down here during the regular season. Located at the Southern tip of Marshfield, MA, Green Harbor is one of the coolest and most laid back fishing ports on the MA coast. http://www.bostonharborbeacon.com/
