LFA 33 could get an early start to lobster fishing season.

A conference call was held this morning with port reps to discuss the marine weather forecast for the area.

Dumping Day is normally the last Monday of November.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans have granted a 2-day flexibility policy, so the season can begin earlier.

According to the Coldwater Lobster Association, the forecast looks favourable for a Saturday start.

A confirmation call is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 7.

LFA 34 opted not to use the policy.

Their first weather call takes place tomorrow morning at 8.
