Lobsta Buoys

For all you guessers out there. The snowpocalypse is over! The final total was 30 inches in our country town. It's gotta be over, because many surfers have taken to Higgins Beach to tackle the big waves the storm brought to us. Yes, some do surf year round here on the various beaches. Came across this lobster boat ready to head out the other day in a little snow. It was docked at the Maine Wharf.

Question for the world out there---
If there are items called lobster buoys in the fishing industry, are their such things as lobster girls? 
I had to occupy my time somehow during the Blizzard of 2015.
Didn't I?
Well, I wasn't going to 'hang 10'.
Surf's up!

  1. Birdman, I'm diagnosing a bad case of "cabin" fever from being locked in too long. Take two fingers of scotch, preferably single malt, go to bed, and call me in the morning right after you spend an hour or two shoveling that 30 inches of snow.

  4. Reminds me of the nuts in rubberized suits down on the Outer Banks who just can't wait for hurricanes and nor'easters to spice up the waves a little bit.

  10. We don't have lobster buoys down this away. We have lobster pots. I have no idea what all that means.

    1. The pots are below surface. Buoys bob above and denote where your pots are. Got it? Good.

  11. Dear Mr. Birdman: You have buoyed my self-confidence with such important information. I'm going now to get potted. I have seen such buoys but I think in the Cedar Key area they have others ways of marking the pots.

    Risking being called an ignorant peasant, what or who the hell is the Tesla group? Whatever, I'll bet they have an electric sound!

  12. You have reminded me of my Dad. He always used to call the birds on the beach seagulls and "seaboys" when we were kids. He did it with my own kids too and they loved it!

  16. I was in a rented beach house in Gloucester, Massachusetts, when Hurricane Bob came through with a direct hit. When the eye of the hurricane passed over us, giving us maybe 15 - 20 minutes of calm before the backside of the storm hit us, five guys in wetsuits came running onto the beach to go surfing. Nuts! Big time nuts!
