During the winter in Maine many lobstermen switch to scallop fishing, either adding a dragging rig to their lobster boats or by diving (no kidding). Dragging and diving are done on alternate days for safety, divers normally work near underwater cables or other obstacles where dragging is impractical. This morning (5 DegF (-15 C)) Captain Tarr's "Tarr Baby" was at the wharf swapping an old scallop dragger for a new one. The funny looking water is an icy slush blown in to shore by strong winds last night.
