This past week ended on a high note, with Friday one the best days I have seen in Years!!
Large snappy fish and perfect weather and not another car in the parking lot at the boat ramp made for a great day that was welcomed on many levels. After dealing with cold morning temp and 4 days of a northerly wind direction we were finding fish but they where hugging the bottom and the birds were sitting on the rock and the bait was down deep, it's amazing how quickly things come to life and show movement when the temps just bounce back a little bit. A low last Monday of 38 and winds to 30 mph has faded and this Fridays morning low of 56 add in nice sunny weather on Saturday bringing back the near shore water temps that seemed like they fell off a cliff. The bottom line is the Kennebec and Casco Bay have a ton of fish in the system and they are starting to move and we are at the point where it could be epic at any point during the day!!! The bait is very spread out and in Casco Bay you do yourself well by looking at other shorelines as the winds pushed bait to areas where you usually don't find it this time of the year but the fish have found it!! There is group of bluefish in the area so still carry some wire. I really belief we have another 3 weeks of solid fishing in the Portland area and some of the best days we have seen in years.... enjoy it!!!!
