Maine scenery and lobster fishing

Few things we did in Maine other than just lay back and enjoy gorgeous sunsets at the beach, was to go fishing (I caught tiny yellow perch and released the bugger back to the lake), and took a lobster boat trip - we got to see how locals prep and set cages for lobsters, and then "harvest" them afterwards. It's fascinating to know that lobsters migrate with the cold and fishermen follow them. And not every lobster gets picked - they must be certain size etc. I took a short video of the explanation of these details. By the way, my lobster was released back to the wild as I no longer eat them, but my hubby had his fresh cooked right on the boat. 
And here are some beautiful scenery that we saw while we were on the boat tour. It's much better in person. Lots of birds migrating, seals on rocks and in the bay going after fish, bald eagle nest, lovely lighthouse views and of course gorgeous shore views with high cliffs.


  1. Looks like you had a lovely time. Congratulations on your fish too!

  2. Sounds like it was a neat vacation. Not sure I could give up lobsters.

  3. That looks like a beautiful area; great info in the video too!
