National Fisherman

Ever looked at a lobster tail and thought, “This would taste better eaten like a popsicle”? Now all your lob-pop dreams can to come true. Lobster ME, a fast-casual, Las Vegas seafood restaurant, is coming to Bethesda in October.

The signature “lobsicle” involves a Maine tail that’s either grilled or deep-fried; a History Channel YouTube review dubs it “the world’s most perfect food.”

The Loud Hailer

TV show searches for multi-generational fishing family

2015 0728 loudhailer fishingfamilyRelativity Media is currently in the first stage of developing a documentary series about a multigenerational family-run commercial fishing business which would explore the challenges and triumphs faced in today’s day and age.

 

The company is searching for a fishing family in the Gulf coast region.

 

They develop and produce movies, documentaries and TV series for networks like Nat Geo, Discovery Channel, History Channel and many others.

"In an ideal world, We’d like to find a family commercial fishing business where more than two generations are still actively working,” said Andrea McHugh a Development Producer with Relativity Media.

 

According to McHugh, the series will celebrate American fishing families and give a birds eye view into the immense dedication they have to their craft and each other.

 

“Since family-run fishing businesses have become few and far between, we’d like to explore the challenges they face in order to keep their business afloat,” McHugh said.“Since a big portion of the program will focus on legacy and tradition, we’d really like to find a family with at least two generations but ideally three, and at least four or more family members actively working in the business.”

 

The deadline is August 14. For more information contact Relativity Studios at: FishingFamilies@gmail.com

Book Reviews

What’s on your list for summer reading? Well, let me suggest “A Mariner’s Miscellany” by Peter Spectre. It’s a collection of all things relevant and irrelevant concerning the sea, the whimsical and the serious; it’s about boats, ships, anchors, knots and ballast, the lore, poetry and language of the ocean and those who have traveled it.

2015 0526 Miscellany bookThough written in 2005, this collection is a timeless classic.Spectre has written several marine related books and did the yearly “Mariner’s Book of Days,” a nautical desk diary and calendar. He was also editor at International Marine, Wooden Boat and currently Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors. Those years spent writing about boats and correcting author’s notions of boats and the sea have endowed him with an eclectic mix of nautical knowledge.

For instance, does anybody know what “dogs running before their master” means? It’s a heavy swell in advance of a hurricane. That’s in the chapter “The Language of the Sea.”

In the same chapter is a listing of the “Different kinds of dead.”
Included is “dead horse” — a cash advance for wages to be earned, and “dead marine” — an empty beer bottle.

In the chapter “Bread is the staff of life; rum is life itself” is a recipe for Serpent’s Breath (a note says it’s enough for the entire crew):
1 bottle dark rum
1 bottle light rum
1 bottle Cognac
7 cups tea
3 cups lemon juice
1 ½ cups sugar

Stir the sugar and the lemon juice into the tea, then add the hard stuff. Allow the ingredients to meld for two hours — if you can wait that long.

If you are dumb enough to be at the wheel after sharing in that concoction, it won’t be long before you’re aground. But Spectre’s book tells you how to handle that situation in the chapter “Time and tide wait for no man.”

“If you should run aground on a falling tide and can’t get her off, climb over the side and scrub the bottom while you wait for the tide to return. Your friends will think you went aground on purpose.”

In the book’s 289 pages there’s a whole lot more, some of which you might know, most of which you never heard of. Check it out.
