This was our second year going with Captain Carle for a striper trip. We had such a blast! Carle is knowledgeable of when and where to catch the stripers making the trip worth it every time. There were three of us and we caught over 30 stripers this trip with the trophy coming in over 44". We are already talking about how we can't wait for another trip!

I’m from Maine, have lived in Portland for 6 years, decided to take a charter fishing trip last summer for fun - totally worth it! Captain Carle was the best! Not only will Carle make sure you catch some striped bass, but he is also very knowledgeable about the marine wildlife in Casco Bay and you can tell he genuinely cares about the ecosystem. We had a beautiful sunny day, clear waters, caught numerous striped bass, mackerel, saw a tuna, and even got to boat by Portland Head Light. Competitive pricing. Would absolutely take another trip with Carle again! 10/10 would recommend - if you’re looking for a good ole’ coastal Maine adventure, this is it!

We had a great time on the water with Captain Carle. He is so knowledgeable about fishing and we caught some great bass! It's clear that he loves the ocean and fishing, and his fun attitude and expert skill made for a great time. The tide even allowed us to visit Fort Gorges on the way back to shore. I highly recommend Captain Carle for an unforgettable experience!

Carle was a gracious host, his energy level and enthusiasm will push you and your party through the lulls of a long fishing day!!! There’s is no quit in Carle. Even though we didn’t catch a lot of fish, we found them. My daughter caught her first striper and that alone was worth the trip. Thanks again No Slack Charters for being a part of our family adventure

Today we had an amazing day with “No Slack” fishing charters and clearly the best fishing Captain in all of Maine, Captain Carle. And, while the title of this review should say it all, if it doesn’t I cannot stress enough that Captain Carle will do whatever it takes to put you on the fish. Still, perhaps whatever it takes may be an understatement as at one point my husband and I had three stripe bass in the boat at the same time. We caught nearly 30 and what’s more, NONE got off our lines which is truly a testament of the quality of his gear and professionalism. If you get to the Portland area don’t miss an opportunity to fish with Maine’s stripe bass whisperer; he is one I can recommend with complete confidence!
