Maine Striper Fishing Reports and Guided Trips

Wow what great weather!!!! and a real good start to the striper season here in Maine, with solid catch reports up and down the coast!! The last few days I tried a few different Tides, yesterday Capt. John ford and I went out with floating lines and worm patterns in search of leftovers at first light. What we found was a few fish on the surface but really no solid hookups until the tide filled in, once again found our fish on the flats not in the river?? But I'm sure there are some large fish to be had in the rivers!!! I finish my day yesterday stand up paddle surfing in the OOB area with my wife, and holly cow did we see some schools of bass moving around, not feeding, head down and swimming hard. Today I started my day surfing once again in OOB at sunrise lot's of terns working the water around 7 or so.

Maine Striper Fishing Reports

Weather forecast HOT near 90 on Tuesday, Fishing to the south of us Hot!!!! I have my hopes up that is going to be a good year!!! I can tell you this, we are off to a good start here in Casco Bay. We hit a fat 31 inch off a island flat near a river mouth followed up by a 14 inch striper two cast later a mixed bag and that seems to be the word on the water from Long Island NY to Casco Bay.

A few days ago on Maine Striper Fishing Reports blog, I recommended to stay near the rivers, and yes they are holding lots of fish and bait, well the fog had everyone staying in the river today, I hate crowds!! so I ran off to some flats in the hope to pick up a few more before calling it a day, well we found fish scattered and feeding 3-4 miles away from any river system with plenty of small fin bait to keep them here for a few days. I have a feeling there going to just keep moving into our waters pretty thick over the next few weeks, we have the bait!!!! but something we have not had in 3 year…
