Captain David Eaton

A Life Fishing on Casco Bay

Striper Fishing with a Pro

David Eaton has been stalking stripers in the waters of beautiful Casco Bay in Maine with great success for decades. He came to Maine in 1977 in search of Brook Trout, but settling in Portland gave him the opportunity to discover the coast and pursue striped bass.  He has enthusiastically pursued both species since then.

A 47 year resident of Portland, he has served on the Boards of many state and local organizations, including the Coastal Conservation Association and Trout Unlimited.

His goal is to provide you with the same experience that keeps him coming back to the water every season, and dreaming about it all winter long.

A Heritage Fishing Maine’s Waters

This is my great grandfather on New Brunswick’s  Nipissiguit River in 1896.  A different era for bag limits!

I started fishing on the Charles River in the western suburbs of Boston, a short bike ride from my house.  I think back on all those sunfish we caught below the sewer outfall and smile.  We all have to start somewhere!  Spending time in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, I discovered the subtle beauty of fly fishing for trout, and that brought me to Maine to build a log cabin near Rangeley before heading off to college.  When I finished school, I knew I wanted to return to Maine, and have been here ever since.  I still travel to the mountains for trout, but the Casco Bay has been my back yard ever since I came to Portland.

The Last Cast

The Last Cast is an ActionCraft Coastal Bay, fully outfitted for successful fishing adventures.  It features 2 large casting decks, a shallow draft, bow mounted trolling motor, and state of the art Humminbird fishfinder with Spot Lock and side imaging.  With a 24′ length and 8.5′ beam, it’s big enough to get us there and back, yet nimble enough to fish the tight spaces.  It even has a head!
