MAINE LOBSTERING WITH CAPTAIN TOM FARNON
See ‘um Caught!
By Glenn Arnette, lll
Now that Maine is changing colors for the Fall and the weather is cooler, there are so many exciting things to do while visiting in the area. On my recent trip I had the pleasure of meeting someone special to the area. He is “The Lobster Man”.
A former retired Science Teacher, now a Captain of his own boat, Captain Tom Farnon leads the way for “lobstering trips”. Located at Town Dock #2 in York Harbor, Maine, Tom will take you on a “see ‘em caught” trip you will certainly enjoy. His hands on experience makes lobstering seem simple and easy.Captain Tom teaches you while you go lobstering all about the life and ways of the lobster, including the soft and hard shell, those male and female things, how to use the bait, and more.
Your boat experience will also give you some of the most beautiful views of the coast of Maine that you will ever see. Captain Tom has a personality and a heart of gold. He enjoys watching those with him experience what the Maine seas are all about. His rates are reasonable and he will even offer private charters for special groups. His boat is not one of these massive vessels where you cannot get close to the situation, as this is a “real hands on lobstering experience.” If you catch the right size, who knows you might be having a nice Maine lobster that night.
To contact Captain Tom Farnon, you can call him to make a reservation at 207-363-3234. This is one of those special things you should do while in the York, Maine area. Thanks, Captain Tom, for the fantastic opportunity shared with you on that perfect afternoon on the waters in Maine.
