Maine Fishing Charters

Light Tackle and Fly Fishing in Mid Coast Maine - The rugged beauty of the rocky coast, the miles of pristine beaches and the wooded shores of the mighty Kennebec River all set the tone for a world class fishing trip.  During the months of May & June the Kennebec is catch and release, fly and artificial lures only fishing.  This provides for some of the very best striped bass fishing on the East Coast.  July through September Striped Bass light tackle or fly fishing is very consistent.  In July the Bluefish show up along the coastal islands and beaches along with school sized (footballs)bluefin tuna offshore.  August and September is the time to try your luck at offshore fishing for shark.  Blue Shark, with the occasional Mako mixed in, cruise the cool waters of the Gulf of Maine.  Obsession Charters currently holds the State of Maine Blue Shark Fly rod Record.
