The Tourist News Saltwater Fishing Report will resume in May, 2016.

Saltwater anglers enjoyed another productive fishing season along the southern Maine coastline. Although most would agree that it did not reach the great fishing of two years ago, both inshore and offshore fishermen reported many excellent catches.

It was nice to have some bluefish to catch for a change this season even though it did not last very long. The striped bass fishing, however, was steady and consistent. Offshore fishermen had a banner season catching both ground fish and game fish such as sharks and tuna.


From June to October, fishing and sight-seeing is offered by Captain Greg Metcalf along the Kennebunkport coastline aboard the custom 23-foot Striper Swiper. Captain Greg Metcalf has more than 30 years of experience sport-fishing in the Northeast. Call Captain Greg year-round at 401-617-9265, email greg@captaingregmetcalf or visit
