Super Fly: Fly Fishing Charters with Captain George Harris

Maine Striped Bass ~ Bluefish ~ Cod Rates

Call Capt John Coppola (207)542-3134

Interest in fly & light tackle fishing for Striped Bass & Bluefish  has spread like wildfire across the northeast and Super Fly Charters is very excited to be offering these trip to you. Each summer large schools of Striped Bass,  and Bluefish arrive in the Gulf of Maine to feed on the huge schools of Mackerel, Herring, Sand eels, Crustaceans and Squid. Often these bait fish are found very close to shore and hungry game fish are hot on their heels, often churning the water in epic surface blitzes and amazing aerial acrobatics.

Fishing tactics include live baiting, fly casting, casting popping plugs, soft plastics & metal jigs with spinning rods as well as specialized “Butterfly” jigging techniques born and perfected on the Pacific Rim. We supply all the tackle necessary to subdue these powerful game fish. Come join us for the chance to land the fish of a lifetime with fly or light tackle. These exciting trips are in high demand. Please call for available dates.

Nearshore  Light Tackle Cod Trips

In addition to the Striped Bass trips that we offer…We also offer bottom fishing trips to target Cod. Now when most folks think of Cod fishing, they think of long rides to the fishing grounds, aboard a crowded boat, fishing with broomstick tackle and super heavy jigs, epic tangles etc…..Well here at Super Fly Charters we have re-defined the art of Cod fishing with light tackle!!!…Located just off the coast of Maine lie some very productive fishing grounds. Shoals,  ledges, rocky pinnacles and steep drop-offs provide great habitat for Cod, Pollock and other bottom dwellers. We have spent a lifetime learning which areas are the most effective and we have scaled our tackle down to provide the most sport. 72401_1462146837584_3256190_nThe majority of these trips involve the use of very lightweight & sensitive spinning tackle that we spool with ultra thin braided fishing line so you can feel every thump. This tackle allows us to use much lighter weight jigs even in heavy current. Most anglers that choose this trip often combine it with one of my Striped Bass trips as a way to throw some tasty fillets on ice!! This trip is also very popular with families as it provides a great variety of bottom fish species and fast action…These trips are available to start at the beginning of May and run through the end of October!! If you feel the need to get in on some saltwater fishing before the Stripers arrive please get in touch with us for available dates.

Guided Beach & Shore Fishing Trips

Reid State Park In addition to the many boat fishing trip options, Super Fly Charters is pleased to offer “hike in”  shore based fishing excursions on some of mid coast Maine’s most scenic beaches, rocky shorelines and estuaries. All of these areas offer prime habitat for numerous species of bait fish, shrimp and crabs…all of which attract hungry Stripers!!!

When the conditions are right, we’ll slip into our waders or shorts and hit the beach… We often find huge Striped Bass cruising just outside the surf line….I like windward south facing stretches of beach…with bait being blown in tight the Stripers & Bluefish often feed aggressively right in the surf zone!!! Some of the shoreline habitat that we frequently fish is comprised of surf, sand flats, fast water channels, bays, coves, rips and marsh… Most of it  is easily accessible to fly & light tackle anglers. This walk-in style of fishing offers a completely different and interesting perspective of fishing the coastal waters.

Super Fly Charters provides all equipment(spin or fly gear)for these surf fishing trips. These trips can be arranged for groups of any size , perfect for family or corporate outings!!!
