Transcript of sections of Interview with Jack Wells in his Twine Store on Oct. 14, 2006 (see CD for full interview)
3:57-4:02: "Down on the wharves then, filling boxes of fish gutting the fish, splitting the fish " [hear seagulls simultaneously]
4:02-4:05: "Right up through me life I was in the fishery."
5:45-5:54: "At that time, the trap and all cost $2,000. Now I never had no money. I had to go in and then I had to pay that off."
6:01-6:17: "After trapping boys, we'd go trawling and we'd [6:05 water crashing] beg? [not sure of the word, maybe get?] 3,000 hooks a night, every night, had 1,000 pieces of bait that went on every night. You had to cut up you own squid and you had to be ready for the next morning, right. So you put in a lot of hours in the day."
6:22-6:31: "We used to go down off Torbay, about 7 miles down the coast, Torbay grounds, you know [seagulls loud here!]. We used to fish them. We had grounds and that right up to the Narrows nearly."
6:32-6:47: "We caught fish different times of year, some times of year they'd be no good [and we] then we'd go further away. Or we could go up to Petty Harbour, north...You couldn't go above that because you weren't allowed to use trawls in Petty Harbour, it was all hand line."
11:50: Veggies on boat, everything
12:09: "What we had there we had more of it." [speaking of abundance of food out on the boats]
13:19-13:24: "Oh yes, I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed fishing. Fishing was my life."
13:26-13:32: "Fishing was my life. I wish I could go back [to that? not sure of word] but I knows I can't."
19:10-19:20: "We're keeping this going now there. "The fishery ya know" [son Jack who walks into the twine store chimes in]: "three generations now." [I say]: "Three generations?" [Jack (son) says]: "Dad, me and Sean."
25:51-26:01: "Everybody helped each other. I must say that. It was a great spot to live boy, it was. So much changing, ya know. There's only a few of us here now."
26:46-27:11: "Oh, I've had ten and twelve come in here now sometime from the States [26:49 loud waves heard] and they sat down there and they walk in, have a look out the window and everything and they say 'You've got a million dollar view.' And they said 'How much would you sell it for?' And I said now 'I'll tell you something, I don't think you've got enough money to buy this.' 'I have' [Jack imitating person]. I said 'No, you'll never buy this, I said, not when I'm alive.' "
29:45-29:52: "When I was growing up, there was, I suppose 50 youngsters out [?] there b'y. Everybody had a big family."
37:00: Jack talks about knowing when to take fish out of the water [before cleaning and drying it].
38:30-38:47: "You gotta fillet it, wash it, then you got to put it in salt. We had to have the flakes seven or eight days you wash it out and put it out, right? You wouldn't have to soak it, see? Then you got to put it out and you got to get the weather and you got to make it. Then you gotta get it up."
38:57: "If the weather got real bad, you could lose it."
40:40-41:21: "Take the fresh fish put it in the tight pans with salt. Salt makes its own pickle only 5 or 6 days."
43:44-43:47: "If you didn't like it [speaking of fishing], you wouldn't be at it. You had to have a mind for it."
44:30-44:45: "The merchants then, at that time, a kettle of fish was 112 pound. When we went into Confederation, a kettle of fish was 100 pound. So what did the merchant do with the other 12 pound? He had it for himself!"
44:57-45:03: "Like the old saying is, 'the fishermen made the merchants millionaires.' "
