The Catch

We’d rather be fishing too.

Let’s face it, there’s nothing quite like being on the ocean in the summer dropping a line in the great blue. To make it even more amazing, you’re casting off from downtown Kennebunkport, lucky you.

Striker Charters was founded by Kevin Lord and Ben Welch, two fishing buddies out of Kennebunkport, ME. Kevin and Ben started fishing together in 2005 for sharks and stripers, and a couple years later for Bluefin Tuna.

With over 40 years combined fishing experience both inshore and offshore, as well as freshwater fishing for bass and trout, being on the water is second nature. Kevin and Ben are the winners of the 2007 Downeast Maine Shark Tournament. Both are licensed Master Captains through the United States Coast Guard. Ben is also a registered Maine Guide.


Inshore charters will target fishing for baitfish such as Mackerel and Herring. Then we will target the gamefish: Stripers, Bluefish.


Offshore trips will target for Giant Bluefin Tuna, Blue Sharks, Mako, and Threshers.
Cod and Haddock are also available for offshore charters.

Families Welcome

Striker Charters is family friendly and a great experience for children. We have five lobster traps to be hauled by the captain if the customers wish. This is a highlight for kids!
