Champagne Charter Co

Champagne Charter Co. invites you to join Captain Brendan Champagne for an exciting day of inshore saltwater fishing in Maine’s beautiful Casco Bay! As a Maine native and fishing fin-atic, Brendan is highly experienced and extremely effective at putting you on the fish and enticing the bite!

Brendan’s boat is a 19’ Sundance center console that’s powered by a 90 HP Yamaha engine. It’s got enough room for up to 3 prospective anglers, making it a great option for bringing some friends along. Along with all the necessary safety and navigation gear needed for a productive trip, it’s also equipped with a wireless trolling motor - great when you need to run silent.

Champagne Charter Co. offers a variety of fishing packages, including full day, half day and evening trips. Captain Brendan specializes in Striped Bass fishing and his fishing tactics are strategically chosen for each trip based on trends, tides, and weather. He is very confident in providing a memorable fishing experience, whether you are an avid angler (spin or fly) or a first-time fisherman.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of a given trip, along with complimentary drinks and snacks. All you need to bring is a pair of sunglasses and some sunscreen, and you’re all set to catch the fish of a lifetime!

Captain Brendan Champagne has been fishing his whole life, and there's hardly anything he'd rather do instead. There's nothing he likes more than being outdoors, rod in hand, and catching some big fish. He's always ready and willing to share some of his trips and tricks with guests who are eager to learn.
