    Loved this. I’m sure I knew people like this when I was young – the lobster shack thing rings a bell – and yet I can’t put a finger on any of them.Report

      Thanks! I have a feeling my father is a typical lobsterman, although I’ve only known a few. He is definitely of a type I’ve worked with elsewhere though.Report

        I grew up on the opposite coast, in a fishing village on Puget Sound. So there weren’t really lobstermen, but there were “gill netters” who would go out and catch salmon when that used to be a thing. Gill netting is a lot like line fishing, with nothing to do for a lot of the time.Report
