You can fish the skinny waters of Casco and Saco Bay using fly fishing gear or light tackle to target the striped bass that inhabit these waters, or head further off the coast on an eight-hour charter to hunt for the apex predator of the sea! Maine has a healthy population of Mako Shark, Blue Shark, and Thresher Shark, each puts up a ferocious fight while hooked up.

Depending on the trip length, season, and fishing grounds, Fish Portland Maine Saltwater Charters will help you hook up on Bluefish, Cod, Striped Bass, Atlantic Mackerel, Tuna, and Sharks. The price for your trip includes a fishing license for everyone on board, all of the fishing gear that you’ll use, fly fishing tackle if requested, and fresh/live bait.
