Steve Bodge is an alewife fisherman at the Nequasset Dam in Woolwich, Maine.

Lobstermen from Casco Bay journey north to Woolwich during the month of May to buy fish from Steve. The alewife population has been vastly depleted in the past 200 years and Steve does what he can to protect the fish, while still harvesting enough bait for his loyal customers.
