The End

The Last Day

The last day all the gear is taken ashore. After each trap is emptied the rope is untied from the trap and buoy. The traps are stacked and the buoys are piled together. On the way shore the ropes are coiled and tied up for the following season.

All our rope from all 18 traps (600 ft per trap).
