Maine Striper Fishing Reports

When my angler casted to this fish on sand flats, we thought it would be a spunky battle on a 8 wt 10 lb floro and and a small crab pattern in the skinny water. The Bass ate the crab and turn for a quick run then just stalled out, we where just waiting for another burst and a chance to see backing wich often happens on the sand flats by far the best fight you can get out of a striper!!! as we got closer we knew something was not right and by the looks of it the fish has signs of Mycobacteriosis an emerging infectious disease that affects well over 75% of the resident striped bass in Chesapeake, we often don't see the signs here in Maine as the cooler water is said to help temporality clear it up a bit. There are many groups working on the study of Mycro and funding Seems to be a issue,Groups like Striper Forever, CCA and many more have help supported getting the word out, and a consistant eye is needed to kept a watch on the health Of the Chesapeke watershed.. MAINE SALTWATER FISHING REPORTS, overall we are off to a very good start the amount of fish in the Casco Bay system is the best seen in years!!! But the amount of food is also very high add in water temps that are up a bit from last weeks heat wave making the fish very lazy and the bite a very short window, low light AM or on the tide incoming change. fish size wise is all over the place from 14 inch micros to 40 lb cows are being landed. There are going to days that the fish are snappy and hold up well thru the tide and days you will need to work your ass of to feed them, the tide will be key and thinking out of the box on the slower days might just get a few fish.
