Tag and Release Maine Shark Fishing

Our shark fishing trips are usually most productive from mid-July through August when the sharks migrate through Maine waters. These are all-day trips and involve chumming the sharks to the boat. Our clients fight the fish on stand-up rods, and the sharks are brought on board through the transom door for measurements, photos and tagging. The tagged sharks are then released as part of National Marine Fisheries Apex Predator Tagging Program. Of the hundreds of sharks we have tagged since 1984, fifteen of our tagged sharks have been recovered from various places around the world such as Cuba, the Azores, the Flemish Cap, the west coast of Africa, and Columbia.

The majority of sharks we see are Blue Sharks ranging in size up to 12 ft. and 400 lbs. We have also tagged and released Mako Sharks between 200 and 800 lbs. We also find Porbeagle and Threshers.

Maine Bluefin Tuna Fishing

Giant Bluefin Tuna fishing begins in June and continues through late summer and into October. Tuna are unpredictable but are probably the most exciting fish to catch on rod and reel. We have landed giants over 900 lbs. Fish are retained by the boat due to the Federal and State permits required.
