Welcome to Fish Portland Maine. Greater Portland’s Best Fishing Charter Company!

Local (and some not local) Stuff I Recommend

Here are some local guides, restaurants, lodging establishments and other fun stuff I recommend. 

Maine Saltwater Outfitters

The Kennebec River is a world-class striper fishery that is one of only three known spawning locations for these incredible fish on the east coast. Captain Forrest Faulkingham has been guiding the Kennebec River for nearly 30 years. He knows every nook and cranny of this incredible fishery, and he is an absolute joy to fish with. Offering only the best in equipment, he is also an entertainer of the first degree. Capt. Faulkingham is noted for his incredible fly-tying which has been featured in books and magazines nationwide. He’s also my dad.

Obsession Sport fishing Charters

Captain Dave Pecci is the Kennebec River’s Orvis Endorsed Guide. Dave is as knowledgeable as they come, and guides clients for everything from stripers and blues to tuna and shark. Dave has recently begun chartering out of Charlotte Harbor, Florida in Maine’s off-season. Dave is well known in the fishing community as a hard-fighter for the future of our fisheries, and is a wealth of knowledge on all things that swim.

Down East - Eggemoggin Guide Services

Captain Pete Douvarjo is as fishy a human being as ever lived. When Capt. Pete is not thinking about fish, he’s either asleep, or under anesthetic. And even under anesthetic, he’s been known to ask the doctor for the leftover thread so he can tie flies with it. Pete is a blast to fish with, and can give you the best downeast Maine has to offer. He is as excited as you when you catch a fish. Don’t go downeast without looking Pete up.

Saco Bay Tackle

Located conveniently near some of the most famous striped bass fishing spots in Maine, Saco Bay Tackle stocks everything the angler or would-be angler could want; rods, reels, rental rods and reels, live and frozen bait, and of course the most important staple for the visiting fisherman, advice. As with all advice, Saco Bay’s is worth what you pay for it, but the good news is if you talk nice to the owner, Pete, you may just find yourself in his office, drinking a beer and listening to him lie about all the fish he catches.

The Tackle Shop

No self-respecting angler should visit Maine without a trip to The Tackle Shop. Over the years owner Dana Eastman has accomplished the impossible: Keeping a tackle shop open in an area that has, at best, a six month fishing season. Whether your passion is fly fishing, spin casting, trolling, deep-sea, fresh water, salt water or ice fishing, The Tackle Shop has you covered. And you can’t leave without a Tackle Shop sticker and one of Dana’s world-famous bucktail jigs.

The Snow Squall

After a great morning on the water, there’s nothing better than hitting my favorite local restaurant, The Snow Squall, for a great burger or their secret masterpiece, real Buffalo Wings. “The Squall” is located right in South Portland just minutes from the marina where my boat lives. If you’re looking for an outstanding, laid back “upscale pub” atmosphere, unbelievably good food, and great service, you can’t go wrong. Don’t tell the owner, but her haddock chowder is almost as good as my grandmother’s. Don’t tell my grandmother either. Please.
