Trap fishing. Stationary traps held with in place with a frame and 1,000 lb anchors. The design is similar to lobster trap, they are in the process of hauling the parlor. First they close the nozzle, then start hauling twine by hand working to the steamer. I did this as a kid and later in life. A close family friend owns the business.
The mooring was recently set. Tried a couple methods to build a good set. Normally a ten foot drag will produce some mounding in the bell. The sand in this area looked kinda hard. Anne's website recommends screwing them in by circling the mooring, essentially screwing it in. I tried this and was able to see a small crater formed because of the clear and shallow water. I'm planning for some repeat visits to see how it's doing.
