Out in the bay fishermen catch mackerel and blue fish. Further off shore they go after haddock and Pollock and cod. Please be sure to familiarize yourself all the regulations that apply to catching these fish, by visiting the Department of Maine Marine Resources website.
The big prize these days is Atlantic blue fin tuna. Marston’s has probably six boats dedicated to tuna fishing. We even had one of our captains appear in a season of “Wicked Tuna.”
We also have quite a few customers with recreational lobster licenses. These fishermen can submerge up to five traps in the bay and must keep their catch for their own use.
There are a number of very experienced fishing guides here on the river who specialize in striper fishing. Others take clients further off shore. And some offer short duration “kids trips” during which children catch fish, watch seals, pull lobster traps and see the lighthouse. You can find more information on each further down the page.
