Captain Pete Mondello Rebuilds His Trap Trawl Table Once Again
A GMG tradition through the years.
Tracking Captain Pete’s Trawl Table Rebuilds every 3-4 years.
Here’s this year’s table (built 6/16/18)-
And previous rebuilds-
Here’s Pete Mondello and Billy working on a new setting table for the Allison Carol.
When Pete hauls his ten pot trawls he will stack the pots along that setting table after they have been re-baited and then he will set the traps off the back of this “setting table”
So Pete is rebuilding his trawl table on the back of the F/V Allison Carol and I coulda sworn he had just rebuilt it last year. I’m thinking to myself jeeze, that didn’t last long.
So I say “Pete, didn’t you just rebuild that last year? Two years ago tops?”
His reply, “Nah, that was three years ago.”
Well guess what? Not only wasn’t it longer than one two or three years ago, it was 6 frickin years ago!
6 Years ago-
Where the heck is the time going?????
