What to Expect

Typically I will meet the party at the predetermined boat ramp or location. After a brief rundown of the tackle and boat we will get underway.

Clients can expect to catch between 10-25 smallmouth or largemouth bass on an average trip. Some days are better than others and I have had days where I have caught over 100 fish in a four hour period. Along the same lines there are also some days when it seems as if you couldn’t buy a bite. Luckily, these days are few and far between, but they do happen. That is fishing! For the most part the bass fishing in Maine is very consistent. There is a ton of water to explore and the fishing pressure is very light. Some bodies of water will consistently produce high catch rates while others can produce bigger fish. Depending on your preference we can make a decision on which you’d like to target.

I will fish in almost any weather as long as it is safe. Rain is not a problem in fact rainy days are some of the best fishing days. Quality rain gear is a must for inclement weather. If you wish to reschedule or cancel your trip due to inclement weather that is your decision.
