North East Salt Water Maine

North East Salt Water Maine offers a unique fishing adventure out of Phippsburg, ME. Join Captain Joseph, who recently decided to share his lifelong fishing experience with other people and started guiding trips. Explore the waters of the far north and far east this summer. These trips are all family-friendly and suitable for anglers of all skill levels, especially beginners.

You’ll be fishing on a 21’ Maritime boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This skiff is powered by a brand new 115 HP Yamaha engine that reaches the speed of 30 knots. With a fast boat, you’ll reach your fishing spots quickly and spend less time traveling. The boat also features navigational electronics, a wireless trolling engine, a live bait tank, and a cooler.

The fishing grounds you’re going to visit are mostly calm, like flats and inshore spots. This is where you get to target Striped Bass, Pollock, Atlantic Mackerel, and Bluefish. There’s a variety of fishing techniques you can try out, so there’s always something new to learn, even if you already have a few trophies under your belt.

Capt. Joseph covers all of your fishing equipment and licenses. You only need to pack your drinks and snacks for the day and you’re ready to go. Since you get to keep the catch, feel free to bring a cooler, where you can pack your fish after the trip.

North East Salt Water Maine hopes to host your next fishing adventure and help you find a way to the tastiest fish you’ve ever caught.
