Best Maine Fishing Charters

Seasonal Perkins Cove fishing charters from May to October

Salty Lewer Charter Fishing offers light tackle inshore fishing charters for primarily Striped Bass (Stripers), Mackerel, and Bluefish. Seasonally, in the spring and fall, offshore trips are also available for popular ground fish, Haddock, Pollock, Cod, and other local fish. We also offer Blue Fin Tuna trips upon request. Full day charters are needed for ground fishing and tuna trips. We welcome anglers of any skill level, especially beginners who want to try their hand at fishing with an experienced Maine captain to guide you.

Salty Lewer's most popular trips are for Striped Bass, “Stripers,” which are a southern Maine premier gamefish and are thrilling to catch. 

Our early morning fishing trips typically start by heading out of Perkins Cove to catch some live bait. Early and late day trips are often when the fish are the most active and can be exhilarating and is lots of fun. After we jig up plenty of bait fish, we head out to some of our favorite fishing spots. Inshore coastal spots include areas along beaches, river mouths, and our beautiful rocky shoreline which extends from Ogunquit to York.

There is nothing like fishing off the coast of Maine which can be an adventure for the whole family. Our private charters depart Perkins Cove daily and you can choose two-hour, three hour, or even four-hour fishing trips.

Perkins Cove Fishing

“The Cove” is close to many good fishing spots and we can be on the fish in a short time. Our powerful Yamaha 425 motor allows us to get to multiple fishing spots in short order. We fish the sandy beaches, along the cliffs, at nearby islands, and along the rocky coastline in search of the 'fish of a lifetime' for a most memorable experience.

Striper fishing can be fast action and hooking into one is exhilarating!


All fishing gear, bait, rods, reels, tackle, and permits are provided. We use professional quality fishing gear on our boats. Live bait is the most frequently employed, but we also use dead bait, and various artificial lures and swim baits.

Ogunquit Scenic Cruises

Would you like to see the beloved coastal Ogunquit sights and get a little closer to the spectacular marine life that is home in the coastal waters off Ogunquit, York, and beyond? There is no better way to experience the Southern Maine Coast than from the water. Enjoy a ride along the beaches, rugged shoreline, The Marginal Way,  and past sweeping granite cliffs. Scenic cruises past Boon Island Light, or The Cliff House resort and Nubble Light in York, or up to Kennebunkport to see the famed Bush Family Compound are a special way to immerse yourself in that is beautiful about coastal southern Maine.

What Our Guests Say About Salty Lewer Charters

I took my 7 yo son on a two hour, 6:00am trip with Bryan. We are novice fisherman, especially when it comes to the stripers we were out there catching.

Bryan was patient and instructive and he was engaging with my son. It was exactly the experience we wanted. We will be taking a longer trip next time.
