Fishermen Pleased With P.E.I. Fall Lobster Season
Prince Edward Island’s fall lobster season got off to an inauspicious start in 2014 but ended on a high note.
Lee Knox, president of the Prince County Fishermen’s Association, recalls sailing out of Skinners Pond on Aug. 8 with winds gusting to more than 50 km/h as worried family members watched from the shore.
It was probably the worst setting day he’s seen in 27 years, said Knox.
“Fishermen were basically setting in a storm I guess you could call it,” he said.
