Low water, post cold front but Mac got me where others couldn't go and got me on some fiesty smallmouth. Thanks, Mac for an enjoyable day! If your in the area and love the fight of those angry river smallmouth, Mac is your guy.

Read all the reviews to get a clear idea of who this guide is. On top of all those nice things that have been said (and all true) he's also your go-to guide when fishing conditions are less than perfect. I fished fir smallies with Mac a couple of weeks ago when the river level was dropping pretty fast and... More

Mac is a true professional. His equipment was uniquely suited for the adventure that began at departure. A boat designed for the Penobscot rapids allowed us to go where few can venture. We fished an unspoiled paradise of feisty small mouth bass, eagles, and unspoiled wilderness. Great fishing with a personable, highly skilled and knowledgeable guide.

Yes! We did have a wonderful day. The Penobscot remains one of the best smallie destinations in the country as far as I am concerned. The fact that you had a great day only makes my own sense of satisfaction even greater! More

If your idea of an ideal fishing day is drifting down the Penobscot, catching over 50 pristine small mouth bass per rod, under the watchful eye of bald eagles, with not a single other angler in sight, Capt. Mac is your man. His jet propulsion, Kevlar bottomed boat is the only means to get you up the river safely while... More

The boat bottom is made out of Ultra High Molecular Weight plastic, not Kevlar. I don't think that boat would take hi-velocity round but it does extraordinarily well on the bottom of my boat when confronted with the rocks strewn throughout the Penobscot River. I love the fact that we can get to places where others cannot reach. It... More

Booked a day trip with Captain Mac for my husband and brother. It was the highlight of their trip. They were picked up at our inn, lunch was provided, wonderful scenery at the lake, and most importantly lots of fish. Captain Mac did a great job of keeping rods ready and had all the equipment needed. Also a good source... More
