Maine Striper Fishing June 1, 2014 QuickReport

This past weeks unstable weather killed the bite for a few days with a couple of night seeing very low dew points cooling the water outside the bass comfort zone.-- But that has changed and is looking to set up for a preety good weather pattern,and timing and low tides during daylight hours  bringing water temps back up and we should see improvements in the bite daily!!!!

 There is a good number of striped bass on the coast of  Maine from the Kennenbec, Casco Bay/ Portland area,There are reports a few larger fish being landed ,but mostly schoolies size bass in the 15-25 inch range,  The reports to the south are looking good with some nice fish being caught in New Hampshire and Cape Cod and some very large schools of fish being spotted on the sand flats of the cape.-- Water temps at the portland bouy are 51-53  the nearshore flats and estuaries have been warming a few degrees above that,  tide timing and sun can change water temps daily so check back in area that may have fished slow a few days ago, it does not take much to get these fish back on there bite..

Quick Tip:
Fish the moving water and the meat of the tide,although out going might be a bit better the incomer should be explored as well,,,, herring patterns in the 5-7 inch range are working well our  light takle guys  have been having fun with sluggos black silver 6 inch.!!!!  This is early season so things  change quickly, feel free to drop a email or check back for updated fishing reports for the coast of Maine.
