Ever wondered what a lobsterman's day is like? Want to learn all about Maine's delicious and mysterious crustaceans? Are you dying to know how to tell a male from a female lobster? Then come along on this photo tour, or book your own spot aboard the Captain Jack Lobster Boat Adventure out of Rockland, Maine.
In September of 2006, my family and I joined Captain Steve Hale and his 7-year-old grandson, Jack, for a memorable lobster fishing trip in Rockland Harbor where we literally caught our dinner. On our hour-and-a-quarter tour, we learned all about lobster buoys, traps and bait; watched Captain Steve haul and check his traps; discovered which lobsters are keepers and which must return to the sea; and soaked up the scenery including amazing views of Rockland Breakwater Light. My daughter even got a chance to drive the lobster boat.
