Presidential Vacations & Retreats: President & Mrs. Bush in Maine - Photo 1

George H.W. Bush, perhaps the last truly passionate presidential angler, commented after having a fish hook removed from his ear while fishing in the Atlantic off Kennebunkport, Maine, "If that had been in the eyeball, I guess we would have gone in, but it wasn't, and I didn't. After all, it was a perfect day for bluefish." President and Mrs. Bush with their grandchildren on the rocks of Walker's Point at Kennebunkport, Maine. August, 1989.
