Ita€™s often been said that a bad day of fishing beats the best day at work. But what happens when fishing is your work? In A Hard Way to Make an Easy Living, author and career fisherman Corky Decker recaps his lifelong fishing adventures. From his start as a young boy intrigued by the sea working for tips on party sport fishing boats out of Ogunquit, Maine, to captaining a multimillion-dollar factory trawler that fished Alaskan waters, his stories of successes and failures provide an insidera€™s look at the lives of men and women who go to sea to fish.
