Toby Burnham, also known as The Seagull Whisperer, and his lobster boat the Jupiter II, spotted along the Back Shore.
So this youngster aboard the Connemara Bay thinks he can out gross the master- Toby Burnham?
How will Toby respond to such disrespect for the gross out game that this youngster has shown? Has the elder statesman of gross not earned a little more respect than to be called out in a 11 second YouTube video? Stay tuned for Toby’s response.
From the website of Connemara Bay Fishing Charters–
It is not the first time and probably will not be the last time we see an angler kick back a striper heart like a shot of whiskey.
Dana Wensberg was sure to get all the taste from this one as he chewed before swallowing. He also called out a local lobsterman, Toby Burnham, who frequently entertains tourists by biting the heads off of rotten herring
This back from 2009 when the youngster was probably still wearing diapers.
So yesterday this Homie was on the roof of Toby Burnham’s lobster boat The Jupiter II with a striper plug with it’s treble hooks stuck in its leg and abdomen. it was stuck hobbling around and in obvious pain.
Toby was inside the cabin oblivious to the condition of the seagull and when he popped his head out the seagull flew off the roof of the boat and onto the roof of our dock here at Captain Joe and Sons.
Toby grabbed a piece of herring and lured the injured seagull back down off the roof of the dock and just as the seagull got within striking range he snatched it by the tail and held it by it’s neck.
Then grabbing a pair of metal cutters he snipped the treble hooks to remove them from the feet and abdomen without tearing the belly out of the seagull.
Moments later he was on the deck eating a piece of fish scraps Toby fed him.
A job well done just a week after his 50th birthday.
Nice work Toby!
Nice work Toby!
Because where else can you get this kind of experience? Friendly lobstermen like our pal Toby chomping on a flounder carcass while you represent with a new free GMG sticker. What’s a vacation without an authentic experience like that? Come down and get your own free GMG sticker at our dock 95 East Main Street Gloucester Ma. If we’re not busy I’ll even give you a quick lesson on lobster gender.
I took this picture juxtaposed against a bunch of regular lobsters so you could see just how different they are. Toby Burnham on the Jupiter II caught this marbled lobster a couple years ago and landed it at our dock.
Peter Prypot has a wonderful article today in the Gloucester Daily Times about another one that was caught by John Symonds of Essex. You can read the article by clicking this text
