Maine Striper Fishing on the flats 2008

Blue fish showed up and feed hard on the large pogies, then we would find them schooled up on flats near the edges of eel grass beds and warmer mud. Blues being blues are always willing to eat a fly if there not spooked, Tim did a great job keeping his body and cast low and droping the line light in some skinny water to get the eat.

This Fish Was caught by Jerry Gibbs who is also taking the Photo in Late June of 2008, Bigger fish had moved in the bay feeding hard on pogies then drifting around the warmer flats to digest. This fish ate the fly in about 18 inches of water about 200 ft from deep water, Jerry had fun with that fight!!!!

Sage Fly Rods Brad Burns

Brad Burns - Stripers Forever
Maine, U.S.A
The battle of the striped bass is on, and Brad Burns, President of Stripers Forever, is on the frontlines, fighting to protect the fish so many of us pursue.

It’s a calling he simply couldn’t ignore.

“When the stripers disappeared in the ’70s, the commercial fishery faded away,” Brad says. “But as the fish came back, so did the commercial fishing—to the same levels that preceded the crash in the first place.”

In the last five years, anglers have seen the population of spawning-age stripers fall by nearly 20%. Spurred by a massive increase in commercial harvest quotas and alarmed by the plummeting numbers of big fish, Brad and other concerned anglers banded together to form Stripers Forever in 2003. Since then, they’ve spent nearly every waking hour working to stop the unsustainable harvest of striped bass along the Eastern Seaboard.

On those rare occasions when he’s not pounding away at policy makers—especially in May—Brad can be found tossing floating worm patterns on the south side of Cape Cod, hoping to enjoy the results of his work.
