Maine Fishing Guide

Thinking like a fish

Kennebunkport, ME
"I try to think like a fish," is the way Jim Dionne describes his success as a fishing guide in this down East town. What he means is that he can generally predict, on the basis of the moon, the tides, and a lifetime fishing these waters, where the striped bass, bluefish, and sea-run brown trout will be. Plus, he drills his pupils on casting accurately. The result: They don't usually get away. Dionne counts the town's most famous fishermen, the Bushes, among his students. $275 for four hours. 207-967-5889; fax 207-967-2815.
