VARIETY OF GOOD EATING FISH
Captain Ben is proud to offer one of the best ground fishing charters in southern Maine. Maine’s ledges hold some of the best ground fishing on the East Coast. Cod, Haddock, Pollock, Monkfish and other bottom fish are all possible catches aboard the Kristin K. Ground fishing will take you further out than our inshore fishing options so a full 8 hour day is recommended. Captain Ben will take you 20-30 miles offshore often to Tantas or Jefferies ledge in depths of 180-300 feet of water.
Jigging the bottom with butterfly jigs or bait fishing the bottom are the techniques used depending on the weather conditions. Whale sightings out here are very common!
Experienced to advanced anglers are usually recommended for this type of trip but Captain Ben is a wonderful teacher. If you would like to take your fish home with you, Capt. Ben would be more than happy to fillet and bag your fish so it will be ready for the grill or your freezer.

Captain Ben is a family man himself. Which is why he offers a low-cost 2 hour family fun trip that is great for fishing with little ones and beginners!
Light tackle inshore fishing trips are available in 4 and 6 hour options. Because inshore is closer to land it means quicker access to fish.
Not much of an angler? Just want to see ocean life, landmarks and maybe a sunset with a glass of champagne? Captain Ben is happy to oblidge!
Shark fishing or “Sharking” is all about hunting for the apex predators of the sea. 99% of our sharking is catch and release but sometimes we will take a high-quality delicious Mako for eating.
