Making a living in Maine

Making a living in Maine is sometimes (wait... often times) a matter of doing more than one particular thing. Judging from the sign, this person is planning on doing more than selling blood worms and eggs to get by. Blood worms, if you aren't aware, are great bait for fishing. But, you have to be careful of the little buggars as they have a nasty bite. Blood worms are found in the tidal flats of local rivers and digging for them (akin to digging clams) is back-breaking work.

I'll be documenting more signs of how Mainers make ends meet in future posts. Stay tuned...
