Striped Bass Expeditions

One of our most fun and easy fishing trips are striped bass fishing expeditions. This is perfect for fishing with the whole family, friends, a bachelor party, or just to get away from the shore and its worries for a while.  With fast action, loads of fish, and great summer weather, striped bass fishing is a great place to start with fishing or for an experienced angler to take it easy!

Ground Fishing Excursions

Ground fishing is a fast paced fishing excursion that is great for experienced anglers. Unlike most of our fishing trips, the haddock, cod, pollack, and halibut caught on this trip are very good eating.  We go pretty far out, 45 to 60 minutes from shore, and catch lots of fish. Exercise your light fishing gear and see how many haddock you can catch!

Kids Fishing Adventures

Kids Fishing Adventures

Our beginner-oriented fishing trips for kids is focused on teaching youngsters the fundamentals of fishing.  We stay within a quarter hour of shore and trips are typically two hours.  This trip is best for kids between 8 and 12 years old who are interested in learning how to fish.  This is a great way to teach children the fundamentals of saltwater fishing!

Jason took us on an incredible day of ground fishing and shark fishing. I reeled in my first shark today and it was a MAKO!! What a wild and fun experience! He’s a genuinely nice guy who provided us a safe and enjoyable day. We can’t wait to go again!!
Amanda Newman

Had a great trip with Whiptail! Jason was terrific – helpful, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We caught some beautiful fish and learned a lot along the way! The boat and all equipment was top notch and we had a great time – highly recommended.
Adam Levy

Capt. Eaton always provides a great experience offering fishing off shore for shark, tuna, cod, haddock or if stripers are your thing close in fishing. You can’t go wrong with Whiptail Adventures!

David Wehmeyer

This was a great trip! Jason put us on the stripers right away (after catching mackerel for bait). He took time to explain what was happening in the water and what we needed to do to be successful. If you are looking to fish for stripers in southern Maine, I highly recommend Whiptail Adventures!
