I’ve been leaf-peeping around NH’s White Mountains on more than one October (my wife and I felt like the only tourists under 50, but we didn’t mind), and one of the best things about it was the fresh seafood brought in from Portsmouth all the way to the western edge of the Kancamaugus (sp?) Highway: fish chowder, am strips, lobster rolls ... my mouth is watering already. So you’re right, Obama’s fishing ban will affect not just Portsmouth and coastal Maine, but inland areas as well.
“So youre right, Obamas fishing ban will affect not just Portsmouth and coastal Maine, but inland areas as well.”
Without the seafood, the Hell is there to eat here? And it's too bad that Gloucester, MA is in the banned area, because some of the best seafood eating is around that area; that's actually where I go when I need my seafood fix.
If you watch Lidia Bastianich on the Create channel, she did a show which featured Gloucester and its fishermen.
