Fishing in MidCoast

X

The long, finger-like peninsulas that define the coast from Casco Bay to Penobscot Bay are the reason why Maine’s coastline is longer than California’s. Glacially carved peninsulas are havens of serenity and beauty, dotted with welcoming seaside villages offering wonderful amenities for visitors.

Here harbors and fishing villages have remained largely unchanged during the last century or so. Saltwater angling is a big focus, with striped bass, bluefish and mackerel the primary targets. Charter boats offer offshore shark, bluefin tuna and groundfishing trips. Inland, this region offers a large white perch population, with abundant chain pickerel, largemouth and smallmouth bass fishing opportunities.
