MONHEGAN ISLAND, MAINE - NOVEMBER 19: Chris Rollins takes a break from cleaning out old bait barrels in his fish house before beginning the lobster season, November 19, 1999 on Monhegan Island, Maine. Long hours of bagging bait and repairing old traps make up the days leading to the opening day of the lobstering season, called Trap Day. Monhegan Island, home to lobstermen and painters and a popular destination for tourists is twelve miles off the coast of Maine. Ringed by high, dark cliffs, its interior a mix of meadows, marsh and spruce groves, Monhegan is one of just 14 true island communities left off the coast of Maine. The island has a 65 permanent, year-round residents and the population grows to around 200 in the summer, with day-trippers adding several hundred more. (Photo by Amy Toensing)
