The Maine Fishermen’s Forum has created this page to honor those fishermen who have crossed the bar. 

We want to honor our heritage, our history, our friends and family members.  We encourage you to submit a picture and a paragraph of your fisherman or woman so that we can share it with others.

Mark Wells (67) passed away on Nov. 13, 2021 from complications of Covid.

Brought up in a family of 6 kids to a military father, Mark traveled across America and overseas to Africa.  He gained his love of hunting and fishing from his parents, Bert and Faye Wells.  Mark had worked with his grandfather, Dutch Albertson, lobstering as a teenager in Sebasco Harbor.  Mark’s appreciation for commercial fishing stayed with him, and after 6 years in the Navy, he worked as a lobsterman for decades.  He bought his own boat F/V Miss Betsy in the 90’s.  He fished out of Sebasco Harbor with his son William, lobstering and tuna fishing.  Mark also participated in the Maine Lobster Boat Races, where he won several trophies.
