A short video of an early August shark fishing charter in the Gulf of Maine on board the Obsession. It includes pretty cool underwater shots of a 9 foot 150 pound female blue shark chewing on the propeller and of 5 ½ foot mail blue shark boat side prior to release. We caught sharks on 50 pound class spinning gear and 30# class stand up gear on this trip. While fishing we saw porpoise, ocean sunfish, seals, many different seabirds and a 30 foot basking shark.
Will Stobart (7) had a fun morning of Kennebec River striped bass fishing with his dad and granddad.
Longtime clients Larry and Celeste DeMarco from Brightwaters, NY joined me on august 7th for some great Kennebec River striped bass light tackle action. Larry prefers fly fishing (as do I) but whith the stripers holding deep in heavy current we opted for drifting live eels.
Graig White and his Dad Mike joined Capt. Dave for an early August morning of fly and spin fishing for striped bass on the Kennebec River. Fly fishing was a bit slow but the live eels worked just fine.
Nate Rubbo (10), his dad Mike, granddad Dom, and their fishing buddies Marty and Jarred joined me again this year for a great morning of Early August striped bass spin fishing action on the Kennebec River. An early start and cloud cover helped provide nonstop action until the tide went slack.
