As we moved to our afternoon site at Courageous Sailing our luck fishing continued and we caught to chogies right away. After baiting 4 of our lobster traps we let them sit while we took turns fishing and using different types of bait that we had found, from mussels to invasive crabs much fun was had by all to see which type of bait was most successful (it was mussels!). At the very end of the day we decided it was time to pull the lobster traps to check them for any interesting marine critters. As we pulled up our first trap the excited squeals of "We got a lobster!" echoed down the pier. Affectionately named "Robert Lobster" by the kids, we could not help but take some pictures with our first lobster of the season at Courageous.

After such a lucky day on the water, as we all left for the night we couldn't help but dream about what tomorrow, and the rest of the summer, will hold.
