November 2017: Fishing with Shelley

Catch Photos
by Shelley Wigglesworth

The end of the season on the F-V Nor’easter did not disappoint. Here are some photos of a day of fall deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Maine with award winning television show host Bill Green of Bill Green’s Maine.  The F/V Nor’easter was featured in a segment on the October 14th, 2017 show. To watch live action of these fish being caught, please visit:
