About 40 years ago, our twin sons, now 48, and I used to fish for mackerel near Mouse Island, just beyond the eastern entrance to Camden Harbor (Lincolnville side).  Mackerel and pollock were plentiful then, and we caught an occasional flounder just off the bottom.  The shrubbery on Mouse Island was different then, this looks as though it was around 1910 or so.  It's not clear, but I think there is a boat in the background off the right hand end of the island--it isn't where the rocks are, which would be out of the picture to the right.
