Fisherman Trades in Boat for Business Degree

There’s an article in today’s paper about a fisherman, Craig Pendleton a 3rd generation fisherman, and his decision to get out of fishing entirely.

Pendleton, 48, is trying to sell his boat, and last month started taking classes toward a business degree at Husson University in South Portland. For the third-generation fisherman, it is more than a career change. It’s the end of a way of life and a family heritage.

“I’m the last Pendleton to fish out of Camp Ellis,” he said. “I held out for as long as I could.”
