SHARKS!!! This is our most popular trip

Come enjoy all that Maine salt water fishing has to offer aboard the FV “The Struggle is Reel.” Captain Chris and Dylan offer a variety of inshore and offshore trips  for every experience level. 


Lobster Tour: these take place in the evenings. Generally 6-8 pm. Maine has a rich tradition of lobstering. Come learn about this species and fishery.  This is a great family activity. Rate 300 / 2 hr trip 


Striper:  Come test the tackle and your grit against Maine’s number 1 inshore game fish. These trips can be booked for Saturday or Sundays. Rate 550/ 4hr


Haddock: These are early season trips. Generally taking place on the weekends in June. There is always lots of action and you take home what you catch. Rate 750/ 6hr 


Shark: This is our specialty. We love introducing anglers to big game fishing in Maine. We have lots of toothy critters in these waters. We average several sharks per trip, with many in the 200-300lb range. These only run on weekends July 1- September 10, so book early. Rate 1150/ 8hr 


Tuna: We run a limited number of tuna trips per summer. Mostly targeting recreational sized fish after the commercial quota is full. Rate is 1500/ 12 hour
