Incredible 30 seconds of slow motion highlights of catching a 150 - 200 pound Gulf of Maine Mako caught on 30 pound stand up gear.

HOT weather this 2nd week of September is continuing to keep the striped bass deep. Good light tackle action is taking place on the ledges of the Kennebec River. The bite is not continuous but there there are lots of stripers to be found if you are persistent. fish deep and slow with worms or eels. I'm still confident that as the days cool off the fly fishing will be great.


Shark fishing is very good right now and will continue for the next 3-4 weeks. Check out the mako shark videos I posted on the Maine Fishing Videos Section of the website.

This 3 minute video captures some pretty intense action of a 15 minutes fight with a 150-200 pound mako shark. Several jumps and long runs ending with the shark leadered. We had hoped for a few boatside pictures but the mako wrapped himself in the outboard and broke off. We caught several blue sharks on spinning gear and fly rods during this trip also. Thank you to Erin and Jeremy Libby and Sumner Crawford for the camera work and colorful commentary!

Everyone had fun on this late August morning on the Kennebec. The striped bass were holding deep and a bit fussy until the tide started running but then things turned on. Live bait on light tackle spinning gear is still the key but over the next few weeks we'll be getting them on lures and fly fishing. The young of the year alewives are starting to arrive in the lower river. Going to be a very good fall for stripers! Great getting to know the Woods family, hopefully we can do it again in the future!

Even though the Gulf of Maine Shark Fishing started slow this summer it is now in high gear! We had pretty much non-stop action with fly rods, spinning gear and stand up gear. We ended up the trip with doubles, on on fly and on standup. The stand up gear fight lasted over 20 minutes bring the biggest blue shark (over 10') of the trip boat side weighing between 250 and 275 pounds!
