Member since July 2015 Sandwich, United States
Background
Growing up, Captains Ben & Matt Maher spent their summers on the water. Sport- and commercial fishing has been part of their family for over half a century. Ben and Matt were first introduced to the art of fishing by their grandfather or father, who would take them out casting from the dock in front of their grandparent’s house. Both brothers spent the past decade focusing on commercial fishing, which gave them a great knowledge of the waters of the Cape and South Coast. From May to October, they can be found fishing and mastering their cast.
Techniques
Light tackle to get the best fight out of the fish!
