Topwater Guide Service

Capt. Dana Connon Augusta, ME Licensed Insured

We are a guided fishing service of the many gorgeous inland fisheries that southern Maine has to offer. Our specialty is Bass fishing, but our passion has us pursuing many different local species of freshwater game fish. Whether your desire is to experience the fight of a river Smallmouth, the explosive strike of lurking Largemouth, the awe of catching a giant Pike, or even a tasty meal of Trout, let Topwater Guide Service make it happen!

Dana Cannon is owner and operator of Topwater Guide Service; a former Marine, firefighter, husband, and father – he’s excited to meet you and guide you to the fish! Topwater Guide Service is a freshwater fishing guide service in Maine specializing in Bass and Pike.

Two anglers fish comfortably aboard the 19’ Bass Boat. There is a casting platform for your fishing adventure, and a livewell on board. Safety features include life jackets, fire extinguishers, flares, VHF Radio, and a First-Aid Kit. With a background of a First Responder, Dana is also trained in CPR and able to assist in almost any emergency  

Topwater Guide Service is located in Southern Maine, just a half hour away from Portland. We fish the many Lakes and Ponds in this area, as well as rivers and streams. During the winter we offer ice fishing; and jigging and spinning when the rivers are running.

If you’re looking for ice fishing trips, Dana is able to accommodate four anglers. Before your trip we will discuss where to meet, what you need to bring, and what to expect. Book a date and Dana will give you a call to customize your Maine guided ice fishing trip!

Whether you’re new to fishing, or are an avid angler, we welcome you to Topwater Guide Service! All ages are welcome – Dana enjoys sharing his love for fishing with everyone! Half day (4 hours) and Full day (8 hours) trips are available. Rods, Reels, Lures, and Tackle are provided. Topwater Guide Service also provides lunch for full day trips, snacks and waters. All you need to bring is your Maine fishing license!

Fishing in Maine is an adventure… one you definitely don’t want to miss! Topwater Guide Service will guide you to the Bass and Pike fisheries in the area and teach you all you need to know for a successful day on the water. We look forward to fishing with you – book today!
