Midnight Sun Heading Home

FV Midnight Sun Ten Pound Island Lighthouse

The Brutality of Fishing in Winter

Not a job for the faint of heart. 

Watching Joey and Captain Russell with his crew of the FV Lady Jane offload at Captain Joes on this last morning of 2017 you couldn’t help but be struck by the deadly dangerous conditions of working in frigid Arctic temperatures and blistering winds. Nearly every surface of the boat was covered in a thick layer of solid ice.
Prayers and best wishes to all our Gloucester fishermen for a safe and prosperous 2018.
