This summer has been very busy with Casco Bay Cruises and Maine deep sea fishing trips day after day. One of the best things about running a charter boat is getting to meet and becoming friends with people from all over the world. We had the opportunity to meet the Menon family and their friends on a recent trip and they were visiting from Bombay India! They wanted to take a cruise of Casco Bay and try their luck at catching a fish. Well, the youngest of the group wanted to try to catch a fish and she was successful in doing so within the first 5 minutes. You would have thought they had won the lottery the way they went on about catching mackerel!
This family and friends had a great time taking in the sights and asking a lot of questions about Maine, Portland, Casco Bay, wildlife, deep sea fishing and you name it they asked about it!!! They were very curious about the way of life here in Maine and the U.S. The part of India that they are from is on the Arabian Sea and is now called Mumbai instead of Bombay and it has a population of 20.5 million people. The daughter is a chemistry student at Northeastern University and they come here often to visit. They plan on coming back out with us for some offshore deep sea fishing later in the summer.
We hope you all had a safe and happy 4th of July! Catch you next time!
