Mainely Blue Charters

Captain Cory LeDuc of Mainely Blue Charters has a quarter of a century of fishing experience and he grew up fishing. Running a professional charter business has always been his dream and he invites you to share that dream with him aboard his 28’ custom Master Marine center console.

The vessel comes powered by a 225 HP Honda Four Stroke engine and features an array of navigational equipment and safety gear. It also has outriggers, downriggers, tuna tubes, a live bait tank, and an ice-box.

It can take you up to 30 miles from the coast in search for that trophy Bluefin Tuna and other deep sea species, or you can stay closer to shore and focus on Striped Bass, Pollock, Halibut, Black Seabass, and others. You can also go after a variety of Sharks, including Blue, Mako, and Porbeagle.

This Tuna catching machine can accommodate up to 6 anglers, but it’s recommended that no more than 4 fishermen go on longer big game trips for maximum comfort. The captain will show you a variety of the most efficient techniques, including trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and even kite fishing!

You’ll be provided with top-notch Penn and Shimano fishing gear, lures, water, and licenses. Live bait is either bought or caught on the way and is included in the price. After the trip, the captain will clean and fillet the catch for you to take home, free of charge.

Book a trip with Mainely Blue Charters and get ready to fall in love with the ocean as much as Captain Cory did.

    The name says it all. This is a hardcore trip and the focus is on one thing – the Bluefin Tuna. These trips can be full of patience, but when the drag starts screaming, you will know that it will pay off. This trip can produce a fish of a lifetime.

    Eight hours on the water is a great way to spend the day. The captain will usually venture a bit further and that can produce some spectacular sights. You'll be targeting a variety of Shark, Haddock, Pollock, and many other species. Whales and dolphin usually show up at some point during a full day trip.

    A half day trip is usually an inshore Mackerel and Striped Bass trip. It's great for families and kids. You can also ask the captain about a later start time for your trip.

    This is a great way to get out and see the beautiful Maine coastline from a different perspective. This trip usually includes a little Mackerel and harbor Pollock jigging, which can produce some great smiles and some good photos. Great for groups with young kids.

Captain Cory LeDuc, owner and operator of Mainely Blue Charters is a USCG Captain and registered Maine Guide. Captain Cory has 25 years of fishing under his belt. He grew up fishing in the Florida keys and on Lake Champlain with his Dad, Captain Ron LeDuc. Captain Cory’s experience comes from running the back of his dads charter boat for the last 12 years, where he not only honed his fishing skills but has learned that charter fishing is as much catching fish as taking care of the customers.
