Maine Shark Fishing


Morning Flight Charters’ Shark Fishing Trips

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!

Blue Shark:
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.

Mako Shark:
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!

Porbeagle Shark:
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.

Thresher Shark:
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!
