DescriptionTranscript: After trapping boys, we'd go trawling and we'd [beg] 3000 hooks a night, every night, had a thousand peices of bait that went on every night. You had to cut up your own squid and you had to be ready for the next morning, right. So you put in a lot of hours in the day. We used to go down off Torbay, about seven miles down the coast, Torbay grounds, you know. We used to fish them. We had grounds and that right up to the Narrows, nearly. 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.
