OFFSHORE!

Fighting a ten foot blue dog!



Fish ON!



Dad and 8 yr old fighting one together





Took a dad and 8 yr old out in pea soup fog...little rough going out due to 4 ft seas and fog chop. But the little guy was a trooper and took everything in stride...He and dad fought the first one...5 footer...together. after that he was to hang out while dad caught the rest. Total of four to the boat and one lost before i could touch the leader. We hooked up with a real monster fish...9 or ten feet anyway...45 minute fight that wore dad out big time LOL! We had whales blowing all around us but with 50 yard visibility we didn't see any... Great day with great folks!!

OFFSHORE IS HEATING UP!

The offshore scene is starting to heat up around here. Tuna are finally showing and the shark bite has been fantastic! As long as we can avoid an easterly wind the fishing is very good! While out there wating for the chum to work we had three 60' finback whales suface and blow not 40 feet from my boat! Very Exciting! Here's a little video of a recent sharkin adventure off Mount Desert Rock.
