Portland Maine Fishing Charters
Family Mackerel Fishing Trips
Welcome aboard for Portland Maine fishing charters for families! We specialize in family fishing trips targeting Mackerel around the inshore islands in Casco Bay. Bring your family out for a fun and relaxing time in the bay. These feisty fish run in schools and it is not uncommon to have several mackerel on the line at one time! We’ll clean and bag your fish if you’d like to take some home for dinner. This trip has some amazing scenery for any non-fishing member of the family, too. We pass by islands, forts and lighthouses on our way to the different mackerel fishing grounds. If you keep your eyes peeled you have a good chance of spotting harbor seals, harbor porpoise, bald eagles and diving osprey!
Striped Bass Sportfishing Charters
We offer sportfishing charters for Striped Bass. Come out for a half or full day trip to target Maine’s top inshore saltwater gamefish using live mackerel or fresh chunk bait. We’ll drift or anchor up to target the stripers. We encourage catch and release of these gamefish and we participate in multiple conservation programs that will document your catch for you while also helping scientists working on striped bass research projects. Coastal Conservation Association of Maine (CCA-Maine) and the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) are collaborating on striped bass research with their Snap-A-Striper program. We’ve also teamed up with Stripers Forever. Released stripers 36″ and larger will qualify you for Stripers Forever’s Release a Breeder Club. If the bluefish are running we’ll put on steel leaders and troll the beaches for them. Contact us for up to date fishing reports.
