The Maine shark fishing experience can bring you the
excitement and memories of a lifetime. An 8 hour charter aboard the the
30’ Morning Flight will give you a chance to catch one of four major
shark species that invade the coast of Maine waters from early July
until late October. August and September are the best
shark fishing months when numerous hookups can take place on a single
shark fishing charter. During this time the following shark species are
available to catch by shark fishermen in Maine waters: blue sharks, thresher sharks, porbeagle and the famous acrobatic mako shark.
These apex predators can weigh anywhere from 100 to 800+ pounds. Mako
sharks have been known to leap 20 feet into the air in an acrobatic
display when hooked. At these weights these sharks can provide an
awesome fight on a stand up rod sometimes lasting over 2 hours!
Slender body, with a blue-back and white bottom. Dorsal
fin is well behind pectoral fins. Pectoral fins are long, swept back.
Tips are usually pointed. Typical sharks tail with upper tail much
longer than lower tail.
This shark is identified by the area under the lower jaw
will be white, long gill slits and it's snout is pointed. A great
jumping game fish - very fast!
This shark looks somewhat like a small white, or a chubby
mako. They have a white strip or patch on the back bottom of the dorsal
fin and a secondary keel on the tail.
A warm-bodied shark that is very easy to identify because of
it's bizarre long tail. In some cases the upper lobe of the tail is
almost as long as the body section!
