I grew up on the water swimming, fishing, building, and crawling around on boats -- my first real job (at 13yrs.) was unloading boats and cleaning fish. I guess all that got in my blood and I've come to be honored to accept any invitation to get out on the water -- especially with working watermen. Recently I was lucky enough to be invited along to pull some traps with Phil Tuttle, a lobsterman from Harpswell, Me. He works a total of 100 traps with his good friend Rad (50 apiece). We got a few bugs -- shared some suds -- and ate some of the sweetest steamers I've ever had.
