Super Fly Charters provides friendly, professional guided fly & light tackle fishing trips.
We operate our fishing charters in the Mid-Coast region of Maine, from Casco Bay to Penobscot Bay. This area features an astonishing 1000 miles of jagged, pristine coastline. We focus our efforts on the broad reach of the lower Kennebec river estuary & the outer boundaries of Casco Bay...with its countless thousands of acres of untouched saltwater flats, gnarly tides that rip over rocky structure and an intricate maze of backcountry channels, It's a fly & light tackle fishermans nirvana. On any given day we can be found fishing coastal tide marshes, shallow flats, sandy beaches and islands or ledges located offshore. Wherever the fish are!!! Whether it's on the fly...pitching plugs or live lining frisky live baits we've got you covered check out our website for all of our trip offerings...and stay tuned for some new trips options for 2012

Maine Striper fishing report 7/10/08
A very happy 9 year old Omar Dahrouch "Mackeral Mayhem" 07/06/08 ~ Tim Raines with his first ever Striped Bass, a healthy "slot sized" Keeper caught 07/08/08
We've been finding some nice Stripers early in the morning and late evenings around sundown...By taking our time and really working an area we've caught some nice fish over 30 inches. Typical run & gun style fishing has not been overly effective...finding schools of fish and working them has been key. The stripers on the flats seem to be feeding heavily on shrimp & crabs...keep that in mind while out fishing...we're not seeing the big blitzes when the Bass are feeding on Herring...finesse fishing is the name of the game.
Bluefin Tuna fishing is starting to pick up locally, especially on the bigger fish. The little 50-100 pound fish should be making their annual appearance any day now. Reports show that several Giant Tuna have been taken by the commercial fleet.
Ravenous alligator sized Bluefish are set to invade the mid-coast region...I've already had several of the "yellow eyed demons" in the boat...it's time to break out the wire leaders!!!
We've also done a few more of the Kids "Mackeral Mayhem" trips...I just cannot believe how much fun we have had on these trips!!!I have received several call from parents telling me that the kids are still bragging about all the fish they caught!!!
Call us today to set up a reservation.
