    Acually it sounds kinda fun to me. There's is something I like about working on the ocean when its rough. Wouldn't want to do it all the time but. When the day is over and you are back in port you realy feel alive. Yur tired! But it is a good tired. Espically when you have made a good haul. Sure is funny how the simplest tasks that you take for granted on a calm day suddnly become extreemly difficult when the boat is heaving all over the place and you are fighting seasickness on top of it all. LOL
    I have never fished for Lobsters. But have done my share of crabbing and Salmon fishing on small boats in the Pacific Northwest.
    I really get to missing the ocean. I go back home every summer and spend at least a week out on the ocean Fishing . Cant wait till I can get back out.

    Yeah its something that stays in your blood once you have done it for a while,I first done that for 4 years, then i stopped to go to college for my automotive tech, for 3 years i wasnt fishing....I was dreaming about it about twice a month, dreaming I was in rough weather and everything....lol.

    Than i'd have a few drinks with the boys and all i was talking about was fishing, fishing,fishing, they were like man: stfu :doah:

    But to come back on what you were saying, ya your right, when you get to land and hit the solid ground: you are just drained out!! No more energy left :frown1:

    Ah well, were a big bunch down here in the same situation :) and i guess we all love it.........or hate it!

    Grande-Entree's the biggest lobster fihing wharf in quebec province,we sale for a few millions pounds of the red shells every year.
