Maine Shallow Water Striper Fishing With Capt. George Harris: What's Your Favorite Shallow Water Fish?

(A very happy fly angler with a beautiful shallow water Striped Bass)

What's your favorite shallow water fish to catch? I have many...Stripers of course but also speckled trout on the grass flats...gotta love throwin to a sand pothole and drawing a nice topwater strike, Snook cruising the first trough on the beach...need I say more!!!, Bones are okay but in my opinion just abit overrated except for the pure sight casting aspect...I haven't caught a big one yet so my opinion may change...Big Cudas are exciting and are not as dumb as many think. A 5wt flyrod and some small streamers make Ladyfish a blast...they're always willing to bite and make impressive and numerous leaps...what's not to like about that??? Redfish are another great shallow water species. Bluefish provide me with plenty of excitement anywhere...but when they're pushing and slashing through baitfish up on the shallow flats, now that's FUN!!!

These are some of my favorites...please tell me about yours.

Friend, Eric Peterson says ..."GT's wading on the flats, sight fishing hands down. Tarpon a close second, but nothing like the savage strike and speed. In shallow water they only have one place to run ....AWAY!"

Please post your comments...by signing on as a blog follower...And dont forget to place your favorite fish vote on my sidebar poll!!!

Tight Lines, Capt. George Harris
