Maine TV Show ‘From Away’ Takes Us Friggin’ Scallop Draggin’
So this episode was filmed last summer...right? Well that's what we thought too. When we think of harvesting seafood, we naturally associate it with warm weather.
This latest episode of Maine's From Away reminds us that there are some crazy bastids (and you know, we say that with love) out there draggin' for scallops in the brutal cold. Meet Erik Waterman Captain of the N/V Sea Star outta Spruce Head. Eric and his crew do all kinds of commercial fishing on the coast of Maine throughout the year.
In December and January, they are on the hunt for sea scallops. So much hard work on the unsteady ocean is gone through to make sure we can enjoy some pan seared beauties at some fancy restaurant. It's really great to get a behind the scenes look at how that hard work gets done. A good attitude and a sense of humor is essential. No lack of that with these guys!
Hosted by Brunswick native Teagan Wright, the Facebook series takes us all over Vacationland to visit the folks that help make our state the best place on Earth.
And this guy does it all, creating directing and presenting the show. Not only does he host, he gets right into the sometimes dirty work along with the people he features.
