Sweet Action Charters
A trip with Sweet Action is sure to be one of the highlights of your stay in Maine, whether you’re an experienced angler or a beginner. If you enjoy using bait, an outing typically begins somewhere in Boothbay Harbor with a short boat ride to fish for the “Macks” – the mackerel that will be used as bait for the day’s true prize, the feisty striped bass(depending on the tides and when you choose to depart, this is also a chance to see a beautiful Maine sunrise or sunset). Jigging a silver cigarette shaped lure, it is not uncommon for two anglers to catch thirty 6” to 12” Macks in less than fifteen minutes. If the Mackerel are more spread out, Captain Wolotsky will reach into his bag of tricks to make sure that we have a few of these striper delicacies on-board.
With the 40 gallon live-well now stocked with your mackerel, we’ll then head up from Boothbay Harbor through Townsend Gut, across the Sheepscot River to our fishing destinations: Hockomock Bay, the Sasanoa River, the Back River, and the Kennebec River. If the weather is calm enough, we will sneak across the mouth of the Sheepscot to fish the beaches and coves at the mouth of the mighty Kennebec River. If the wind is whipping, we will head up river where the effects of the wind are diminished. Because we make a 30 to 50 minute run to areas with a higher density of fish then Boothbay Harbor, we strongly encourage the six-hour charter. With over 35 years of experience in the region, Captain Wolotsky will lead you to his favorite spots, where in no time you’ll be catching fish. Once there, we’ll look for the telltale sign of action: swirlies (small swirling currents on the water’s surface) indicating that stripers are feeding. Wildlife abounds, as eagles, deer, seals, otter, and osprey are all commonly seen. Few feel the effects of seasickness in this shallow water environment that resembles a lake or a river more than the ocean where we began.
Make no mistake; this will not be a passive trip. We will not sit back and troll for fish. Whichever technique we use, be prepared for a good fight and lots of Sweet Action.
