This photo shows a typical Maine lobster boat that has been anchored just inside the channel so as not to become stranded during low tide.
We boarded the Lucky Catch, part of Lucky Catch Cruises, in Portland, Maine, and headed for the waters of Casco Bay. Maine has minimum and maximum size restrictions to protectA both young lobstersA and the large, healthy breeders.
Many people think the best lobsters in the world come from Maine, and credit the pure Gulf of Maine seawater with giving the meat a special flavor.
On the tour, weA also learned one wayA to tell the difference between male and female lobsters. Most traps also contain aA lively variety of marine lifeA that have made their way inside and then couldn’t get out.
If a lobster met the size criteria, its claws were banded with a handy lobster claw band tool, and then it went into the on-board tank. After all of our traps had been checked and re-set, we motored back toward PortlandA withA a few extra scuttling lobsters on board. Equally impressive areA the incredibly hardworking MaineA men and women, many of them part of multi-generational lobstering families, doing the harvesting. Our readers voted…and Boiled Lobster was crowned the most popular Classic New England Food. For men, it is professional, scientific, and technical services, accommodation and food services, and construction. Mariners Church, Swedenborgian Church and Stroudwater Christian Church are among the churches located in Portland. Shopping centers in the area include Mill Creek Shopping Center, Monument Square Shopping Center and Portland East Shopping Center. This industry includes restaurants, catering businesses, cafeterias, and other food service establishments that provide meals and snacks to the public.
Lobster boats are designed to be stable, efficient and agile and can perform their jobs perfectly.
These tenders have plied the waters of New England and beyond for many years and understandably so.
For example, did you know that Maine lobsters of acceptable size (more on that later…) are 100% hand-harvested from small day boats, one trap at a time? Note the on-board lobster tank to store the caught lobsters that meet state requirements for capture. LobstermenA carry a handy gauge that measures the lobster from the eye socket to the rear of the body shell (where the tail starts).


Breeding females (meaning female lobsters carrying eggs, as seen in the photo below) must be returned to the oceanA in all US and Canadian waters so theyA can continue having babies. That way, even when her eggs have hatched, the notch will tell other lobstermen of her breeder status, so they’ll know to putA her back. Maine has more than 5,600 independent lobstermen, making itA (no surprise)A is the largest lobster-producing region in the world. The most prominent religious groups are the Catholic Church, the United Church of Christ and the United Methodist Church.
Visitors to Portland can choose from Motel 6, Fairfield Inn Portland Airport and Ramada Limited Portland for temporary stays in the area. Scaled down from our Maine Whitehall she has all the wonderful rowing and carrying attributes that a good Whitehall is known for,making her a fabulous tender. Originally built in the Swampscott Massachusetts boat shop of George Chaisson, these tenders are ranked with the most respected small boat designs of Herreshoff and Lawley.
There are literally thousands of these boats in use today.They have proven themselves to be stable seaworthy yacht tenders. And that there’s not just a statewide trap limit, but trap limits within individual lobstering zones? In Maine,A new commercial lobstermen (and lobsterwomen)A must apprentice with veterans to learn the regulated, sustainable practices. The first pair of swimmerets (the pair closest to the head) are soft on a female, but hard and bony on a male. This practice is one of the best protections of a healthy future for the lobster industry, and isA strictly followed. New single-family homes in Portland are priced at $164,700 on average, which is well below the state average.
Perfect for the small family or the old salt who just wants to enjoy a quiet afternoon sail. You can’t just decide to be a commerical lobsterman and then start doing it a€”A you’ve got to learn the ropes and rules!
In 2008, twenty-three new homes were built in Portland, down from thirty-two the previous year. The percentage of residents with a graduate degree, 13.0%, is higher than the state average.
