Today is the start of the Maine Fishermen's Forum at the Samoset Resort in Rockport.
We hope you are planning on swinging through for a seminar or two and a visit to the National Fisherman booth in the exhibit hall.
Don't miss your chance to spec a new engine; weigh in on lobster, herring or sector allocations; or take part in a session of safety and survival training in the Samoset pool.
