Cohasset, MA, Lobster Pot Tag Found in Ireland
December 5, 2011
Patriot Ledger: When Richard Figueiredo lost a couple of hundred lobster pots to the wind and water of the 1991 “Perfect Storm,” the South Shore native and fourth-generation fisherman chalked it up to the cost of the trade. Other fishermen lost boats and gear too.
Twenty years later and 3,000 miles away, a reminder of the famous storm has turned up on an Irish beach—a weathered trap tag with Figueiredo’s name on it.
