Located on Beals Island, the Great Wass Bait & Lobster Co. facility offers a deep water access pier, ramp, floats, a buying station, a tidal lobster pound, fuel, bait and supplies. It is the most heavily used commercial fishing property on Beals Island and serves nearly 100 boats annually. The Land for Maine’s Future Board supported the protection of the Great Wass Bait & Lobster property in 2013. Grant funds helped finance a number of improvements: extending the wharf to provide access for more boats at all tides, building a refrigerated bait cooler, and making repairs to the tidal lobster pound.
