Capture June 2022
I captured this image of Kate-Lyn Knight, owner of Rocky Bottom Fisheries, as she hauled a lobster trap off Cape Elizabeth’s shore during a lobster demonstration tour. From May through October, Knight takes guests out on the water from Portland to experience lobstering, including taking lobsters out of traps, measuring the lobsters, banding them, baiting the trap, and setting the trap back into the ocean. If they want, they can do it all while wearing fisherman fashion: rubber aprons and gloves.
