Fishing on Desert Island

                   Lobster is king on Desert Island and it’s presence is everywhere.

 There are a number of seaside fishing villages with all the related businesses.

These are commercial areas and not tourist centered, so we really enjoyed visiting them.


     The nearby roads lead to telltale signs of fisherman’s homes.   Most were very neat with rows of traps and equipment in the yard.

                                    A lobsterman’s day is long and busy. 

 A fisherman typically owns 500-700 of these traps and checks them every other day in any weather.

 He also has to keep his boat, truck,equipment and home in good repair.

Many of these families have been fishing for generations and love the sea.
