Dina Spector/Business Insider
Making a living is harder now than ever before, as overhead costs for fuel, equipment, and bait steadily climb, while unprecedented lobster landings over the last several years have sent prices tumbling.
"We're struggling," said Stewart, a third-generation lobsterman who fishes off the coast of Portland."If I come in with 600 pounds, people will see that I made $1000 for that day. They don't see that I just replaced the engine for $30,000 or that I paid over $300 for bait."
To experience the life of a Maine lobsterman last summer we headed to Portland, Maine and spent a day aboard Stewart's 36-foot working lobster boat.
