Maine Fishing Guides and Charters

Maine is a sportsman’s paradise with everything an avid outdoorsman could ask for. The Maine fishing guides have fishing year round, that is if you count ice fishing and that they do. Saltwater charter fishing in Maine is excellent too with cod, smelt, and other top species along the many bays and inlets that pepper the Maine coastline. And when the weather doesn’t allow for charter fishing in Maine or when they aren’t bass fishing you might find all the local fishing guides and sportsmen trekking through the woods deer hunting.

There is always something to do like fly fishing for trout in mountain streams, there is fishing for land locked salmon, and so many activities for visiting anglers to enjoy that a fishing enthusiast may not want to go home. Not that all they do is fish or hunt because they are other things to enjoy besides Maine charter fishing, bass fishing, ice fishing, or hunting. Maine has the down right most beautiful wilderness you will probably ever see. Folks flock to Maine by the tens of thousands just to watch the fall foliage. When you include hunting and fishing in Maine you are talking about one of the biggest tourist draws in the entire country for outdoors recreation.
Listed below are a few Maine Fishing Guides And Charters.

Maine Fishing Trips

If you are planning a fishing trip to Maine the first thing you must know is what part of Maine will you be fishing in? Will you be near the coast, will you be inland, far north, etc? Once you know what type of water you will be near, either freshwater or the saltwater you will know what type of Maine fishing guide or charter you need to reserve. Maine fishing trips aren’t all created equal and neither are the fishing guides. If you want to fish in the ocean you will need to find a guide that does saltwater fishing charters. If you are in the western part of the state or want to fish in a lake you might be near then you will want to look for a local fishing guide around whatever lake you are near. They will usually fish only freshwater but that includes bass, fly, and other types of lake or stream fishing.

Once you know where and what lake you will be near you can search for a Maine fishing guide which you should do in advance of your trip. Spring and summer can be busy for the area guides and if you don’t have a reservation you might not find a reputable guide at all.

Once you find a Maine fishing guide you’d like to hire there are a few questions to ask him. Ask your guide what he provides, most supply everything except for food and drinks. Experienced anglers usually like to bring their own tackle but if you don’t have fishing tackle or gear don’t worry about it, your guide will supply all the gear. If not find a guide that will, because there are plenty that do, in fact just about all guides supply fishing gear and tackle.
