August 2017: Fishing with Shelley

Catch Photos

by Shelley Wigglesworth

The months of June and July made for great deep sea fishing in Maine aboard the F-V Nor’easter. Haddock was plentiful throughout June with monster Pollack following in July. Plenty of big cod too, which had to be released due to fishing regulations. The sea is plentiful and these anglers featured got a good taste of that! You can check out more of the daily catches on the F-V Nor’easter all summer and fall on the boat’s FaceBook page:
