Maine fishing report 7/23/08

This past week we have run the entire gamut of Maine saltwater sportfishing charters. From inshore Stripers to chasing big pelagic fish & groundfish offshore...We've done it all!!!

Starting with the Striper bite...we have had excellent results drifting with live bait, Mackeral/Herring, landing numerous fish over 30 inches. I have found that by targeting fish over deep water ledges, we can catch fish all day long, not huge numbers but steady fishing on bigger fish!!!...low light conditions have not been as important as they would be when fishing skinny water...tidal flow is everything. Fly fishing has produced some nice fish...remember to have lots of patience when targeting these fish in "thin water" you wont get lots of chances to fool that big striper into eating your fly....make every cast count!!!

The "nearshore" Bluefin Tuna fishing has slowed over the past few days....we have seen the water temperature drop several degrees from temps in the 64-66 degree range to 58-60 degree range. Several giants have been landed locally....With the massive amounts of baitfish that have been holding off the ledges...I expect the influx of "Football" Bluefin tuna to arrive any day now.

Groundfishing for Cod has been excellent...we have done numerous trips over the past week...all of them very succesful. Butterfly jigging technique have accounted for almost all of our fish. I recently guided Doug S. & his good friend Mike, Capt. of the Bermuda based "Mojo", a 35'Cabo tournament billfish boat. Capt. Mike was consistently raising codfish 20+ feet off the bottom before they slammed the jig using the high speed "Butterfly" jigging technique

The family/kids trip remains very popular. This trip is a great way for a family to spend quality time on the water and is perfect for introducing youngster's to the saltwater sportfishing world.

Please contact us for more info regarding any of our trips.!!!
