We're looking forward to providing you with the most up to date coastwide inshore saltwater fishing reports on the Maine coast as well as offshore Bluefin Tuna fishing reports as the Maine Striper & "football" Bluefin Tuna Fishing season goes forward into 2014!!! You wont find any generic"cut & paste" reports or info here...Just pure fishing!!!

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 2014

Maine Striper Fishing Report: Super Fly Charters July 15th, 2009...Striper Thumbs!!!

"Striper Thumbs" sighted on midcoast Maine's Kennebec river!!!

Bill Coppola & Capt. George Harris slaying Stripers today (7/15/09) on Midcoast Maine's Kennebec river

Another Awesome day on the water today for Super Fly Charters...Fishing with Bill Coppola...we departed from the south launch in Bath aboard the "Super Fly II"...At our very first stop we drift over some ledges that are awash in the hard ebbing didn't take but a few seconds before we were into the first of many double hook-ups...nice fat happy Stripers smashing our offerings with reckless abandon!!! One drift...then another...and another we're quickly into a double digit fish count. The action tapers off abit at this location...thats okay though...we can use a little rest so we head off to the next honey hole...well our rest was short lived...the first drift at the new guessed it...another double hook-up!!! Man...i'm starting to think that this might just be a tad bit fun. Several more drifts over this productive bottom result in several more double hook ups...We ended up leaving them biting...something that we usually dont do, but what a great way to end a trip.

After last months epic rains...the coastal rivers are clearing up nicely and the Striped Bass are settling back into there usual mid summer hangouts...dependably feeding during periods of tidal flow...Early morning and "Evening Blitz" trips are working best for shallow water fishing. During the mid day hours we've been bashing stripers that are holding deep in the rips... Bluefish have begun their invasion along the Maine coast and we've had several bite offs in the last couple of days. Over the course of the next 8-10 weeks it seems like half of my bookings are for "football" Bluefin Tuna so we look to see some more fat tuna coming over the rail...We have some new Tuna gear to play with this season...gear that will come in handy when we're targeting the bigger fish...Brand new skiff mount Taco outriggers, penn international 30's & 50' cockpit harpoon for darting fish at boatside And as usual we'll have a full array of fly & light tackle tuna gear to play with...

Can't wait to get back on the water!!! See ya next tide!!!

If you're looking to fish with us season...please call us soon for available dates!!! We are taking reservations daily. Don't forget to ask about our evening blitz trip...It's becoming a guest favorite!!!
Capt. George Harris
