Captain & Boats

Captain Luis Tirado

I have lived in Maine all my life, and have been out on the water for over twenty years. I was introduced to fishing through my grandfather who was a well known and highly regarded fisherman throughout New England. He had a widely known reputation for winning multiple fishing tournaments. I started fishing on the Kennebec River at the age of five, and caught my first thirty pound striped bass at the age of eight. My favorite way to fish is with top water lures, I love the excitement of enticing a fish to come to the surface to explode on an artificial bait. I have chased striped bass in every state in New England, and make annual trips to Martha’s Vineyard to fish the highly regarded Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby.

When I am not on the water, I serve the city of South Portland,  Maine as a Firefighter & EMT. I am a monthly contributing writer for On The Water Magazine, and Points East Magazine. I have also been featured in Coastal Angler Magazine. I speak regularly at seminars for Saco Bay Tackle in the offseason as well. I fish from two different boats depending on what we are after and what the conditions demand.

Miss Sarah:

16 foot open skiff that is ideal for 1-3 anglers looking for inshore action. With the large casting platform in the bow, the Miss Sarah is perfectly designed fly casters and light tackle enthusiasts!

Ellie Rose:

26′ Albin Center Console that sports a 360 hp Yanmar Diesel engine. She offers 360 degrees of fishability and is one rugged boat. We cruise at 25 knots and stay dry while doing so. She holds 160 gallons of fuel, has a flush mounted 60 gallon live well, and is outfitted with Simrad Electronics. She also has a head for your personal needs. This vessel was built to fish and will outperform the fleet whether we stay inshore or venture out to the Bluewater. She can accommodate 6 anglers. IMG_1580-1FB_IMG_1470396534792
