Mamosas and Flat Island with Mike and Deb

Setting up our breakfast site

Last July my wife Pat, my brother in law Mike , sister in law Deb and I struck out of Belfast Harbor bright and early. It was a beautiful early morning on Penobscot Bay. Flat water, incoming tide, warm air. We headed over to Islesboro and trolled for mackerel down the eastern shore , not finding much luck. But by then we were ready for breakfast so decided to move on to Flat Island.

The menu consited of coffee, cheeses, fruits, bread, Prosciutto, salami, homemade jellies,fruit and of course Mamosas. We lingered for sometime enjoying the companionship, the warm morning, the conversation and the basic joy of being on an island in Penobscot Bay.

So after a bit we decided to try our luck at more fishing and headed over to the mainland toward Lincolnville Beach and back up the coast to Belfast Harbor. We did hit a few fish off Northport with a spirited fishing contest ensuing between Deb and Mike. Mike hitting it large

It was one of those truly great days on the water. Hard to believe it was over 4 months ago. But we have already started our planning for next summer. Hopefully that morning will be warm and calm . And in the company of family, it will definitely be another great day on the bay.

  3. A day like that is way worth remembering. Looks like a ton of fun! Here's to getting out and doing it again next summer!
