Gloucester, Mass 2015 Lobster Season

Hello All,

I am planning a trip to Gloucester Mass. at the beginning of the 2015 lobster season. I would like to sample the local flavor in and around the commercial docks. I am a Florida commercial fisherman and am very interested in visiting the commercial docks and meeting some local fisherman. Can anyone provide some guidance on setting up this trip?

There is a great blog about Gloucester written by a Gloucester lobster broker. It's called Good Morning Gloucester. See the write-up on wikipedia and the links there: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Morning_Gloucester

I'm assuming that he can point you in the right direction.

Edit: you can email him at goodmorninggloucester@yahoo.com

Another resource is Maritime Gloucester. Although their museum is closed for the winter, you can find contact information at their website (see staff directory):

Hi Greg,

I saw your post up in the Maine Forum too.

Can't help specifically, but I did a google search for "lobster boat tours" and got lots of hits. Check it out and perhaps you'll find something that appeals.

They catch lobster all year round. I don't think there's a peak season. Summer is more popular in Gloucester because of the beaches and whatnot. Maybe look for an AirBNB or other house rental near one of the beaches - a private beach if you can.

My favorite seafood joint in Gloucester is the Causeway, my favorite in the Cape Ann area is Woodman's of Essex.
