Kennebec River Striper Fishing 2011: Super Fly Charters

Maine Fly & Light Tackle Fishing Charters & Guide Service



The reservations continue to come in for the 2011 saltwater fishing season here in Maine...We have many trip options...from Striped Bass & Bluefish to Cod to Shark & Tuna...Please give us a call or shoot us an email if you'd like to join us for a day or two this coming season. We'll be happy help you plan your Maine vacation!!! If fly fishing isn't your thing...no worries we're well equipped for light tackle & live bait fishing too!!! Also be sure to ask us about our "Trash Can Tarpon" aka Carp trip on the beautiful and diverse tidal flats of Merrymeeting Bay...we think that you'll love fishing for these rugged brutes on fly or light tackle. There are lot's of different ways to get Carp to respond....don't believe the hype that Carp can only be taken on fly from the deck of a poling skiff, Do yourself a huge favor...don't drink the KOOL-AID...the fact remains that the common Carp, like Stripers, only spend limited time in the shallows...like most other species, the larger schools travel and hold in the relative safety of the deeper water where they are safer from predators but become much easier targets for the fishermen!!! Either way...shallow or deep...there are very few anglers fishing for them...we already have many of these trips booked for the 2011 season, so we'll be there fishing for them...will you? hahaha ;-)

Maine Saltwater Fishing Charters With Capt. George Harris

Maine Striper Fishing With Super Fly Charters: Have You Booked Your Trips Yet?

Our most popular offering over the years has been our inshore trip for Striped Bass & Bluefish with fly & light tackle...This trip takes place in the Mid-Coast region of Maine, from Casco Bay to Penobscot Bay...an area featuring an astonishing 1000 miles of jagged, pristine shoreline habitat. We focus our efforts on the broad reach of the lower Kennebec River system including Merrymeeting Bay and it's adjacent tidal estuaries...This dynamic fishery consists of thousands of acres of untouched saltwater flats, gnarly tides that rip over rocky structure and an intricate maze of never ending backcountry channels. It's a fly & light tackle fisherman's nirvana!!! We recognize the fact that out on the water, there are no fences holding fish in specific areas, so to better serve our anglers, we trailer our boats...staying mobile is going to be the key in 2011...we're not married to specific areas...If the bite heats up north or south of our home base on the Kennebec River region we'll simply haul the 21' Parker or the smaller more nimble 17' shallow draft skiff to where the hottest action is...this nomadic mobility allows us to access the incredibly scenic and fish rich waters of Penobscot Bay, Muscongus Bay & Sheepscot Bay to the north and to the south we'll explore the diverse fisheries around the Calendar islands of Casco Bay & further down the coast the Scarborough Marsh, Saco Bay, and the Saco River...On any given day we can be found fishing coastal tide marshes, shallow flats, sandy beaches and islands or ledges located offshore....Basically wherever the fish are biting best & whatever fish are biting best!!!
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 exciting new trips options for 2011<*{{{>{...This is the time of year when I spend the most time at the fly tying bench....re stocking the fly boxes and coming up with new ways to to improve my fly patterns...Almost all of the flies that we use during my guiding season are custom made right at my bench...for those of you that live in the area and want to learn all about saltwater fly tying...we'll be offering several courses throughout the winter months...these will most likely be 6-8 week courses 1 night a week....all material will be provided....get in touch if you're interested in learning how to tie the top patterns for saltwater fishing in the northeast as well as some patterns for anglers traveling to the tropics!!!

Also be sure to ask us about our "Trash Can Tarpon" aka Carp trip the beautiful tidal flats of Merrymeeting Bay...we think that you'll love fishing for these rugged brutes on light tackle...we can also combo this trip with a trip for Striped Bass 3hrs of pulling on mogan carp....3hrs of Striper action...now thats a great day on the water!!!

Best to all, Capt. George Harris

Kennebec River Striper Fishing 2011: Super Fly Charters

(Father and Son, Mike & Matt Monheit Team Up For A Great Day Of Maine Striper Action)

It's the middle of winter and I'm kind of bored so I often think back to some of the great trips that we've had from seasons past...here is a blog post recap of one of the many trips that I did with the Monheit family back in July 2010...(07/19/2010)"This report will be brief...The striper fishing in Maine is really good right now...this morning I guided Mike Monheit and his son Matt also along were two of Matts friends...the tide started slow and the fishing matched the tide...but as the tide started to rip we started scoring lots of stripers...singles, doubles, triples and quadruple hook ups...most fish were in the 28-34 inch range which make for great sport on light tackle...The methods we use are proven to catch stripers during the brightest, hottest days...what most anglers call tough fishing conditions is just business as usual for us...we have the experience to time the tides and have the right rigs aboard to ensure that we get the hook ups that elude and frustrate most anglers into submission"

This brief recap reminds me of just how good we have it here in Maine June through October...Some of the most consistent Striped Bass action found anywhere on the striper coast takes place right here in the cool tidal waters of mid coast Maine...Those who've done it with us know exactly what i'm talking about...Those who are planning to fish with us this coming season...you're in for a treat!!!

Throughout this off season we'll occasionally dust off a blog entry from the archives and republish it in our "Guided Trip Recap Series"....(please visit our archives to read about all of our past outings...see tons of cool fish pics with my guests too)
