We are having a great week guiding Casco Bay Cruises and it does not stop until Sunday! Yesterday we had the pleasure of having Dave Cummings aboard. Dave started the company tradebot systems and that company has accomplished great things in a short period of time. You will not find a nicer man than Dave and it was our pleasure to have him join us for a cruise around the bay. You will find some nice photos in our Casco Bay photo gallery. We start fishing again next week and the fishing is just starting to heat up. Call us today and you can join the excitement. 207.751.6966

Mother’s Day weekend is always reserved for Casco Bay Cruises and last weekend was no different. Add in some windy conditions and it turned out for the better anyway. We did manage to get in some sea-glass hunting on some of the island beaches where we were rewarded with lots of sea-glass and nobody else on the beach.

On Sunday we set our recreational lobster traps and took a short cruise around Casco Bay. We have a few Casco Bay cruises lined up this week and it will be fun to show some mid-westerners how lobster are caught. We have several deep sea fishing trips scheduled through the end of the month and from there through September we will be busy. Call us today so that you do not miss the opportunity to book your trip with us. 207.751.6966

We launched last week and went out for our first trip May 5th. It was a good day for a whale watch as the whales ruled the sea that day. I managed to let the battery in the camera run down so there are no pictures. It was a great day on the water just the same and we did manage to catch a ton of redfish and a few cod. The fish were there but they were probably more concerned about becoming a whale sandwich than eating our offerings.

Things at the marina should be better than ever this year as they have made many changes that will make it a lot more pleasurable. We have taken a lot of calls to make reservations lately and if you have been waiting for the right time to call us you may want to do it soon before someone else takes your day. Call us NOW 207.751.6966 and book your trip of a lifetime.

When a letter from the National Marine Fisheries Service, Northeast Region comes in the mail you never know what may be inside for news. Yesterday was no different as they have decided to change the haddock regulations back to what they were last year at 18 inches in length and with no bag limit for the recreational, party and charter vessel operators. It is hard to understand how a regulation like this one can be changed in less than 5 months 2 times. It makes you really wonder who and how decisions are being made? Of course, if the State of Maine decides to implement stricter regulations they have that freedom to do just that. The letter made a point of stating that can be done. And the State did exactly that by keeping the length on cod at 24″. A smart choice in our opinion.

It has been a great stretch of weather lately to wrap-up all the boat work and get ready for launch day on May 1st. The 2012 season should be another great year and the tournaments will be a lot of fun this summer. We have registered and donated our boat, gear & services for the Veterans Appreciation Tournament. It is scheduled to run on July 28th and what a terrific way to show our thanks to the veterans. We will be taking up to 6 veterans out for a day of fishing and having FUN! Veterans, you can register beginning on May 1st by going to www.vetsaft.com .  This is also a good time to mention that we do offer a discount to veterans for any trip that they book with us.

 

Another tournament that we have registered in is the Casco Bay Classic Sportfishing Tournament. New this year is the fact that they have merged the MDA tournament with the Casco Bay Classic tournament. It will be a 3 day event, August 16, 17 & 18, and we do take charters for any of the 3 days during this event.

 

We have been taking many reservations for the upcoming season lately so we want to remind you that NOW is a great time to contact us and book your trip of a lifetime. 207.751.6966.

With the arrival of April we move close to the start of the 2012 fishing season and our favorite time of the year. There are just a few things left to do on the boat before we paint the bottom and get ready for launching at the end of the month. The final changes were announced yesterday regarding size and bag limits for cod. The cod will have a bag limit of 9 and a lenght limit of 19 inches. We received a letter months ago for haddock but we were advised to NOT make an announcement until now because it was possible that it could change. It did not and haddock now have a 19 inch limit and a bag limit of 9. These are significant changes and the logic or lack of make us wonder what the decision makers are thinking.

 

We are in the process of upgrading our website so you will be seeing some significant changes occurring soon. We think you are going to like them!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! A great way to give a reason to celebrate. Another reason to celebrate is this warm weather we have been experiencing. The ocean temps are already increasing and that will lead to an early start to the fishing and charter season. Enjoy the holiday!

Happy Valentines Day! It is a special day for sure and we hope all of you have a wonderful day. We have had a lot of questions regarding the possible changes to the fishing regulations and all we can say is that there are going to be changes and that it is only speculation as to what they will be at this time. When they are official we will post them here and we expect them to be announced by the end of the month so check back in.

 

With the way this winter has gone so far we expect that water temperatures will be influenced by it and that the waters will warm up sooner than usual. It definitely will be worth watching. We have been busy working on the equipment and getting it in top shape for the upcoming season. Most of the rod and reel work we like to do so that we know it has been done correctly. Fortunately our gear is kept in top shape all year long and repairs are minimal. It is time well spent to insure that the days on the water are the best they can be. We are looking forward to a great 2012 and having you join us. Call us today (207.751.6966) to make your reservation for that Maine Deep Sea Fishing trip or Casco Bay cruise and tour.

We are finally getting our first real winter storm today and it looks like it is going to be messy. We really have been fortunate to have had warmer weather than normal but the people and businesses that depend on snow have had it rough so far. Maybe this will be the start of a more normal winter.

 

We have booked many Maine Deep Sea Fishing trips for the upcoming season and thought this would be a good time to remind all of the veterans that we do offer discounts for veterans that want to go Deep Sea Fishing in Maine. Give us a call today to book your next adventure with us. We guarantee that you will catch fish and have a great time!

 

Enjoy the snow and be safe.
