12/12/13 – Let’s go Dredge up some Fish Eggs….ah, Gold

12/12/13 – Well, I guess the inference that gold dredging can suck up fish eggs is a bit of an exaggeration since State of Maine saw says: A person may perform motorized recreational gold prospecting only from June 15th to September 15th and only with written permission of the relevant landowner.
