Tom Ring- A Great Story Teller

Tom is another great character on the Gloucester waterfront.   You could listen to his crazy stories for hours and hours and die laughing.  There are a few guys like this still around.  Guys like Manny and Tom Porter, Busty Brancleone, Tom Ring, Carlo Moceri- the guys that should have book deals because they were real hard working fishermen and not posers that drove around in trucks all day avoiding work like the plague.

Tom Ring Aboard The Orin C

Tom used to fish with Linda Greenlaw.  You can check out her website by clicking this text. He tells me that she is in the process of doing a show about swordfishing but the first trip they went out they ended up having to return to port broke down.

Spotted Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons

Yesterday we got this spotted lobster in.  They are rare but not nearly as rare as the blue ones or the double crusher clawed lobsters.
