Dory Launch


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Fishing in the small, flat-bottomed boats called dories can be a wild ride. The boats launch directly off the beach into a surf that must be carefully negotiated. While the commercial dory fishery is fading away, many still head out just for the love of it.

First Broadcast: 1998
Producer: Jim Newman
