Winter Storm, Georges Bank 1980. Winter on Georges Bank can be brutal and dangerous. Here, a winter storm kicked up and the captain had all the nets hauled back until the storm passed. Successful fishing families like the Brancaleones often take calculated risks, fishing during weather that others won't work in. This way, if they are one of the few boats to bring in fish, they get a better price.
