Shark Fishing

Midcoast,  Maine

Shark Fishing

Tuna and shark fishing in the mid coast area of Maine starts in early August. We fish for Shark and tuna up to 600 pounds 10 to 15 miles offshore the Gulf of Maine using light (relatively) tackle: 30 pound class stand up gear or 12-14 wt. fly rods.  We start (and end) the day fishing for football tuna (weighing 40-100 pounds) show up in the Gulf of Maine in July and usually stay into the fall. They hang on offshore structure while feeding on herring and mackerel.

The Ishee family had a great day shark fishing on the Obsession. This one was caught on a whole mackerel using 30# stand up gear.

Offshore shark fishing was a bit slow but Reagan (10) his grandpa Steve and Donna all got to land A blue shark. Reagan by the way, is a bait catching machine keeping us in fresh mackerel and pollock the entire trip. Videos coming but for now check out the poses this ocean sunfish (Mola Mola) gave us on the ride out through Eastern Casco Bay! Both profile and vertical shots. At one point it was scratching its back on the bottom of the Obsession. We also saw a small pod of Porpoise but they were not as willing to be photographed as the sunfish. Nope, no great white sightings, sorry.
