2017 Portland Maine Fishing Trips

Targeting Maine’s premier saltwater inshore gamefish: Stripers!

We’ll make an attempt to catch mackerel or live herring for bait first and then head to where the stripers have been biting.  We have several favorite fishing spots and we are not afraid to burn fuel!  If we aren’t getting bites at one spot we’ll keep moving around with the tide until we find stripers that are biting.  Be prepared to cast artificials, fresh mackerel chunks and live mackerel.  If the bluefish are running we’ll put on steel leaders and troll the beaches for them.  Call or email us for recent fishing reports and for realistic catch expectations.  Our striped bass fishing charter is ideal for 1-3 people.. 

  • Half day inshore Maine Striped Bass fishing charter is $495.

  • 3 people maximum per Striped Bass fishing trip.


  • Prices are for the boat, NOT per person. This is a private fishing charter so you have the entire boat to yourself.
  • All tackle, gear and chum is provided.  We spend about a half hour targeting fresh live mackerel for bait at the beginning of each striper fishing trip.
  • We depart from: Spring Point Marina, 1 Spring Point Dr, South Portland, ME 04106.  FREE PARKING is available at the marina.
  • If you are staying in the Old Port we can pick you up at the Portland Water Taxi Dock on Commercial Street by Flatbread Company Pizza.
