Fight Against Maturity

It could have been a short fishing season for this crew

A fishing boat brought an unusual catch into the State Fish Pier on Wednesday — a World War II-era mine.
Local public safety officials and state police safely detonated the device several hours later.

Gloucester firefighter Frank LeClerc said the 20-pound anti-ship mine was snagged from the ocean floor by a dragger net. The fire department and state police bomb squad took it to a remote location and safely blew it up at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday.
