Tour the Coast of Maine on a Lobster Boat

Maine's lobstermen have come upon hard times.  The economy has decreased the demand for Maine lobster therefore lowering the price per pound.  The cost of lobster bait and fuel for boats has gone up.  Many lobstermen from Maine diversify their livelihood by doing other jobs such as trucking, construction, and part-time work.  One lobsterman has taken to giving rides to tourists on his lobster boat.  Read more about this story in "Lobsterman a tour guide", Bangor Daily News, June 7, 2010.  Interested in eating some Maine lobster but can't come to Maine?  Click on the link below:
