Tucker Ridge Outdoors

Book your trip with Tucker Ridge Outdoors for an unforgettable experience. Registered Maine Guide John Floyd is ready to show you what fishing in Maine’s secluded and pristine waters has to offer.

Tucker Ridge Outdoors really brings you back to nature. Escape the hustle and bustle of modern-day life for a few hours fishing in the heart of some of the best Bass waters in Maine. You are likely to see moose, bald eagles, and many loons. Fishing in the Maine wilderness is a truly memorable experience.

When the season comes around, there is nowhere better for Bass fishing – you’ll choose to fish the famed Maine smallmouth or target big aggressive largemouth. With Maine’s liberal bag limits, you are sure to have an action packed day.. Anglers of any level of experience are more than welcome on board.

You and your fishing buddy will spend the day on a 16’ Crestliner Bass boat with raised casting platforms. She has a fishfinder, and coupled with John’s knowledge of the area, you’ll be on the fish in no time, with your lines in the water minutes after leaving the dock.

You will fish for Smallmouth and lunker Largemouth Bass, on the rocky shorelines and wetland flats. You will also hook Yellow Perch and Chain Pickerel during the trip.

Want to make the day extra special? For just $35 for 2 people you can have a traditional Maine Guide shore lunch. You’ll dock the boat, come ashore and over an open fire, roast pork, chicken, or steak, with potatoes and vegetables. The perfect lunch.

Before the trip you’ll need to purchase a fishing license, but apart from that everything else is provided. So book now and come see why Maine is a prime destination great for fishing!
