We were very lucky to of had  Ali Fedotowsky  the star of the ABC show called the Bachelorette pay us a visit on Wed . She came along with Chef Michael Smith to do some lobster fishing of Souris Prince Edward Island . We hauled in some lobsters traps and collected some lobsters for our evening meal . Ali was very interested to learn all about the delicious crustaction that are very abundant on our coast around PEI . We were also very lucky to find some other interesting things in our traps like rock crabs , cod ,Sculpins and some very large female lobsters that we had to release back into the water. We ended the trip we a pot full of cooked lobsters which was the freshest lobster that you will ever find. It was over all a great trip and Thanks again to Chef Mike and his crew for making it happen and to Ali for the great trip !

See you in the summer!

Lobster season 2013

I has been quite a year to date …we started of not knowing the price of lobster …..we landed our first weeks worth of lobster not even knowing what we were gonna get payed for our fish???? ….Yah i know it make no sense at all but unfortunately that is the way it has worked but I think it is going to change in the near future….the catch were coming in very good and it looked like we were gonna have a good season price and fish wise….Then the buyers made the announcement that no one wanted to hear , they were gonna pay the same prices that we got 20 years ago ???…. the only problem is that the cost have quadrupled in the last 20 years ….the fisherman decided they weren’t going for that so we tied our boats up for a week…..We hit the waters yesterday and hauled our traps for the first time in a week but it still remains to be seen wether we are gonna get a better price or not????…I will keep you posted!

March Storm

Its hard to believe in 6 short week our lobster firhery will be underway for the 2013 season. We were hit very hard this past weekend with one of the worse storms of the season. There was almost 35 cm come down in one nite and then the winds picked up the next day shutting down most of the Island . Sure sign that the spring is coming soon is the fisherman have begun to put there traps on the wharfs for the spring season . I will begin this week hopefully . Anyways heres a few pics from our storm . Hope to see you in the spring on our lobster fishing adventure !

Mexico 2013

Just got back from a amazing trip to Mexico. The weather was amazing a little cool at night but other than that it was perfect. Our taxi driver was telling us that it only rains four or five times a year and it was nine months since it rained the last time ???? Sounds like a great place to live . The harbour was filled with charter boats and they were very busy every day which is great to see . Spoke to one of them and the said that the marlin were running and it was good fishing ! Would of loved to go but could get awy from the family. The most interesting thing though was the fact that when you were only about a half mile offshore you were in 5000 ft of water ???? WOW thats what I thought. Anyways hope evryone is gearing up for there summer vacations and make us Paradise On the Sea Adventures apart of it !
