And one of the most requested mid-day activities here at lavish, historic Camden Harbour Inn is an afternoon of deep-sea fishing in Maine.

A Mid-Day Escape in Camden: Deep-Sea Fishing in Maine

While guests typically spend their days basking in the inn’s Relais & Châteaux ambiance, dining on fresh seafood, and relaxing in a five-star grand suite, it not uncommon for a couple to seek out the services of Camden Harbour’s world-class concierge staff. This worldly team has strong relationships with the area’s premier MidCoast Maine ocean fishing guides. Most fishing expeditions in this region navigate through the coastline’s many scenic bays. Deep-sea fishing in Maine is always a bit of a challenge for novices—don’t be afraid to request the services of SuperFly Fishing Charters or Verona Island Charter Services. Otherwise, there’s no cap to potential oceanic adventure within sight of the Camden Yacht Club. For those who plan to traverse the sea without a guide, the water near Belfast and Rockland is teeming with striped bass, mackerel, smelt, and bluefish.

Heading Inland

Many local guides, such as Mike Kinney, Maine Outdoors, and Ten Mile Guide Service, focus on MidCoast’s diverse array of freshwater honey holes. While deep-sea fishing in Maine remains an otherworldly experience for experienced anglers, a lot of beginners would prefer wade through the waters in the backcountry. These quiet excursions take place on the Saint George River, Seven Tree Pond, Megunticook Lake, and a wide variety of secret spaces. In these waters, anglers typically bait bass, pike, and stripers. Each MidCoast Maine fishing guide has an extensive list of potential hot spots—but their secrets are safe with us.
