I have some angling experience, and I've gone on fishing charters with my angler friends and have gone on bachelor party fishing trips, and recently went on a trip with Cory at Mainely Blue with some complete newcomers to fishing. I have to say, Cory and his crew were unbelievable, and could slide seamlessly between all of us. I would recommend them whether you're experienced or not; we had a phenomenal time fishing, catching 10+ stripers over the trip in a bunch of different spots. They are exactly what you're looking for when you want to charter a boat. They are calm and relaxed, observant, patient, and ready and willing to help at a moment's notice. They know all kinds of fishing spots, and have all of the insight you need to get fish on the boat. They taught everyone how to use every reel, how to reel and walk the fish in, and taught us everything we needed to know. They even filleted the fish on the way back to the dock so were able to get right off the boat and on our way to enjoying some fresh fish! I will definitely be back and will absolutely be looking to book Cory again.

Cory provides top notch service and made our first time deep sea fishing memorable! He took the time to chat and get to know us and always made sure we were taken care of throughout the trip. I appreciate his, and Matthew’s, patience with my many questions and their willingness to jump right in to help at any time. We even had some unexpected excitement with a potential tuna catch which had my adrenaline pumping just watching them in action. (Unfortunately it got away thanks to Bob jk). We caught fish and they filleted them perfectly so dinner was served that night (and for many more). Seriously I can’t wait to go visit Maine again and do it again. Don’t hesitate, book your trip..I promise you won’t regret it.

Capt Cory and Mate Drew make Mainely Blue Charters the one to book. They have a superb boat and great fishing gear. We went offshore in hopes of getting the haddock and pollack on Jeffries Ledge, knowing the forecast was for 3'-4' seas. The semi-displacement hull of the Lucy Ella handled the waves just fine while getting us to the fishing grounds in reasonable time. We were on great haddock and pollack fishing immediately. Capt Cory wants his clients to catch fish and knows where to find them. Mate Drew keeps the rigs in the water and baited so there's minimal dead time. The wind laid down by mid day and we continued to enjoy fishing under perfect conditions. We're two 70+ guys with lots of fishing experience. We're coming back.

As a fellow charter captain who has enjoyed numerous trips aboard the Mainely Blue I can heartily endorse Captain Cory. This guy is on the water almost every day. Even when not running charters he's out catching bait, locating fish and trying new techniques to hone his skill set. He catches fish when the other guys don't.

We went out with Corey and his buddy Matt on a Saturday for a half day of fishing. Once we got out far enough they wasted no time in getting all 4 of us set up on rods. Within minutes we were reeling in fish, most of which were large enough to keep. We hooked a few sharks throughout the day but kept losing them - Corey and Matt were persistent and finally toward the end of our trip they hooked a blue shark and we were able to reel it in! Amazing experience with very knowledgeable and friendly guys who have a deep passion for what they do. Would recommend to anyone looking for an off shore adventure!

Had a great time with Captain Cory and Drew. We booked the 3/4 day trip and cory was the first to get back to me about a short notice trip. Top notch experience all the way around. We caught lots of fish and even got a big blue shark as a surprise bonus! Had a bluefin pick up a fish we were fighting and he took off like nothing I’ve seen. Ended up snapping the line. Bummer we couldn’t keep him on but my wife got a rare chance to feel a big tuna on the line! These guys went above and beyond to give us a great trip and we’d book again with in a heartbeat. Convenient pickup location in south Portland just minutes from old town. Thanks again guys!

We went out with Captain Cory and slammed some stripers on a 4-hour trip. It was an absolutely incredible experience, and it would not have been possible without Cory's amazing expertise and hospitality. Whether you're a local looking for a great charter experience or a visitor looking for something to do in Southern Maine, I highly recommend getting out on the water with Mainely Blue!

We had a great first trip out with Captain Cory and Drew! They made a special effort to squeeze us in for a 2hr trip as they were booked for our entire time in Maine. They worked hard to help us catch bait and then a couple of striped bass. They are fun, knowledgeable, and walked us through our first time ocean fishing! We will definitely book with them again - in advance next time for a longer trip. Thanks guys!

My 14 year old son and I went out for four hours with captain Cory and first mate Drew, and had the perfect day. Weather was cool, the sun was warm and we even caught some stripers!! Both captain Cory and Drew made certain that catching fish was a must and definitely made that happen. However, as the morning continued it was the scenery and the fishing locations that became my priority!!
We got lots of pictures and video to remember it all and will always be grateful to captain Cory for squeezing us in and giving us those incredible memories!! My fourteen year old went from your average grumbly teenager to saying he had a great time… I would have payed double had I known it was going to be that good!! Thanks guys and thanks for the hats!!

We had an awesome experience with Captain Cory! He put us on fish and we caught all we wanted. The boat was comfortable and was easy to fish from. The gear used was in good condition and was well taken care of. Cory worked with everyone who needed help understanding the bite and made it a fun experience. I highly recommend you give him a try!!
