Capt. Dave Guerard has fished the rivers, bays and estuaries of southern Maine and New Hampshire since the late 1960's. He prefers to fly-fish and to use light spinning tackle for stripers, blues and mackerel, fishing from early May through October. Capt. Dave finds June and September are two of the best months for lots of striped bass action, while July and August bring blues and larger stripers into the mouths of the rivers chasing mackerel and other bait fish. All tackle is provided unless you would prefer to use your own, but he does recommend bringing a good pair of polarized sunglasses, as well as a hat to help cut the sun's glare. Capt Dave is a registered Maine guide and USCG licensed Captain. The one guarantee he gives is that you will have fun!
"Many of the most highly publicized events of my presidency are not nearly as memorable or significant in my life as fishing with my daddy."
