Striped bass. Bluefish. Mackerel. Cod and haddock. For some, there is little more relaxing than getting out on the water with rod and reel. If that describes you to a ‘t’ then you’ll love Kennebunkport. We not only offer some excellent fishing but also number of fishing charter services.
First thing’s first, though: if you want to go fishing in Kennebunkport, you’ll need a Maine fishing license. Luckily, they’re fairly easy to come by and come in a variety of forms. You can purchase a 15, 7, 3, or even just a 1-day Maine fishing license. Even better, Maine fishing licenses can purchased online.
Next comes gear. Unless you brought yours with you, you’ll be needing some. If that’s the case, head on down to the Kennebunkport Marina. The marina will have everything you need from boat, bait, and tackle to snacks, drinks, and sunscreen.
Of course, boating and fishing in unknown waters can be frustrating and fruitless. If you’d prefer to have a little local expertise on your side, a Kennebunkport fishing charter may be just what the doctor ordered.
