Abstract

The author joins Lendall Alexander Jr. on a groundfishing trip aboard the "Julie D" and describes Alexander's fishing heritage and love of his work; his crew, Eric "Pickle" Johnson and Kert "Rug" Brown; dragging procedures; the decline in catch because of restrictions intended to curb overfishing; Alexander's fishing business, which he owns with his wife, Yvette; and how he plans to diversify to offset cuts in fishing days. On another day he speaks in front of the New England Fishery Management Council protesting limits to days at sea and saying he'll have to be dragged "kicking and screaming" from his boat.
