A theme that has emerged on the end of the pier as we talk about an increasing number of sea creatures, is that we often compare them to characters from the show Spongebob. We have had Spongebob himself found on a crab arm, Squidward unfortunately as bait, and now we added one more to our crew. When one of the kids yelled "Larry the Lobster" we did not skip a beat in continuing to call it by that namesake. Although our lobster was not quite a keeper, we were able to show each group that day what was probably our most impressive catch this summer!
We are still waiting for more luck catching more than one Striped Bass, and are still hopeful especially after getting word that there are Stripers at both Spectacle Island and outside the Children's Museum. Even catching a skate would be just the thing we need to let the kids know that there are in fact more than just crabs and lobsters in the Boston Harbor.
Keep your fingers crossed for a big catch this week!
Until next time,
