🎄Before we get too far into our Christmas celebrations, we want to pause just a moment to wish you all a very Blessed Christmas season. 🙏🏻We know too well, many of you are moving through the holidays with heavy hearts, but our hope is you can find peace and comfort with each other.
❤️We also want to thank you for the goodies that you stopped off. We are enjoying them and appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Check out these beauties!! Nice run of scallops. We get them right off the boat, ungraded. We have a lot of U10’s tonight. Not a drop of fresh water ever goes near our scallops.
I’m in a story mood so get your popcorn!
When I was young, many, many moons ago, my grandfather dragged scallops out of Jonesport. This would have been in the 50’s and early sixties for this tale although he dragged through the 70’s. My grandfather was Roosevelt Beal. He and another old salt, George Chandler were the only scallop draggers in the area. Scalloping started November 1st and ended April 15th. I remember him coming home at night with 3 large aluminum trash cans filled with scallop meats. My grandmother had pages of orders and she would bag those scallops in quart bags. The next day, they went out delivering their catch. They were never soaked with fresh water and I can remember sampling those sweet scallop meats.
You won’t see our scallops coming around in a cloth bag. That will suck every bit of sweetness right out of those babies. You won’t taste fresh water either. Just salty, sweet goodness. There’s nothing like it.
And a bit more family history.. my dad Frederick Beal dragged scallops (in the same dragger my grandfather had) after he retired from the Coast Guard and our son Jason, goes scalloping with a good friend and cousin, Cliffie. I like to think that those 4 generations are the reason we have some of the best scallops on the market!!

Edit: the price on these scallops $18 a pound.

11/15 Today I am thankful that my grandparents gave me the opportunity to take piano lessons and bought me a piano to enjoy. Even though I don’t play often, there are times when I am alone, I find it relaxing to “tinkle an ivory or two “. 🎶🎹

Earle has been patiently waiting…. Corned hake, mashed potatoes, squash, & of course.. pork scraps!!

🐟I hate to share this post but it’s only fair to let you know that the price of our FRESH HADDOCK has increased. UGH! When I called in our order this morning, I found out the price increased 50 cents a pound to us. We often try to absorb a small increase but this one is too big for us to do that. So, beginning this week, we will increase our price by the 50 cents a pound to cover our cost only. Haddock by the pound $11.00. 5 pound special $52.50. 10 pound box $100.00. Sorry for this but thank you for understanding.🐠

Monday is my order day for our seafood. Fresh needs to be ordered before NOON. If you are wanting fresh haddock, salmon, flounder it’s a good idea to preorder. We will have extra as long as it lasts.

🍁❄️🌷This post makes me a little sad🥲,but also very thankful🙏🏻! We are transitioning to our winter season and that does not include me with Earle on the D**e, but I am more than thankful he is well and able to move forward this season.

With the winter season also brings a few changes:
🟠NO ORANGE CANOPY. Same van, same sign, he will be parking across from Helen’s. We made the move because it give him more protection from the wind and we believe it will be easier for you folks to pull off the road.
🐟🦀🐠🦐🐟Earle will be alone. Patience please. Seems as we get older we don’t move as quickly and it takes a little longer to think things through. I’m sure some of you can relate to this.
🤦🏼‍♀️This week I will start working the days Earle is on the d**e. I won’t be as available by phone as I usually am. Text will work best to contact me but I won’t be checking like I used to. Your best bet is to try Earle and if you can’t reach him by phone, drop by. Text & messages won’t work with him. He has not bought into the whole smart phone world and I am guessing he probably never will,(but we love him anyways).
🎄This weekend while I have been getting the paperwork done, I fixed up our Christmas Gift Certificates. We will also be offering the $5 off your next purchase coupon for every $50. you spend on Gift Certificates. These make great gifts for almost everyone on your list. Earle will have them with him or you can let me know and I can have it ready for you to stop by and pick up.🎄
🧡This has been a challenging year for everyone. We want to be sure each of you know that we appreciate you business and support.

❤️🦞I don’t even know where to begin. When I met Earle in 1969, he was a lobsterman. He was in high school to please his parents, graduate and get fishing. He had an outboard boat and traps and he fished after school, weekends, & school vacations. He had been fishing probably 5 or more years before I met him. He had not only fished, he had been thrown out of a previous outboard and nearly drowned. If it had not been for his Uncle John (his mothers youngest brother), he would not be here today. That did not deter him from pursuing his dream of lobster fishing. It was in his blood.
He and his father fished together for over 40 years until his dad retired. All three of our children have worked with their dad on the lobster boat over the years. The girls worked on and off their early years to earn money and our son worked to gather knowledge to become a lobsterman himself. Five of our grandchildren have worked with their grandfather. Not only have they fished together but they have spent time together making more than money. They have made memories. Two of those five have their own traps and plan to do their own lobstering. It’s in their blood.
During our life together, we have had good years and bad years, but we always knew what he would be doing. Working hard, taking the bitter with the sweet and be thankful for what we have. I have watched him get gear ready only to change it to comply with regulation after regulation. Complain much? Yup! But he, as did the entire fishery, jumped through the hoops, year after year to be able to get in that boat and work at the only job he ever wanted to do. You see, it’s in his blood.
For us personally, it has been a challenging year. But the common comment had been.… next year will be better. But will it? We are hopeful. We are hopeful that someone, somewhere listens. Pays attention and help right the wrongs.
I personally can not imagine life in Maine without lobster fishing. It is more than a job. It is a way of life, traditions, the glue that holds our communities together. And for Earle.., it’s still in his blood ❤️
