Maine Striper Fishing Blog Report: May 24th, 2009 The long wait is over!!!

Maine Striper fishing is about to bust wide open as the greatest migration on earth quickly approaches!!!

Our 21' Parker "Super Fly" a fly & light tackle SUV (Sport Utility Vessel)

The Boat is in the water. The Gear is ready to go. The water temps on the bays, flats and tidal rivers of mid coast Maine are nearly perfect. Biblical numbers of bait fish clog our waterways. I've been on the water everyday for a week now...fishing like a man possessed. Today we ran nearly to the head of the tide of one of our local tidal rivers...the water temps hovered around 62 degrees....bait fish boiled every where...osprey and eagles feasting heavily on the thick schools of river herring. We have some holdover Stripers to play with but the massive numbers of migrating stripers have not arrived in the mid coast region yet....The run is beginning along the southern Maine coast and migrating Striped Bass should begin pouring into our rivers and bays within a week....WE'RE READY!!! Reports indicate that the waters from Casco Bay south are starting to heat up....We can and do trailer the "Super Fly" to any of the hot areas along the Maine coast to keep you on the action!!!

Maine's Premier Saltwater Fly & Light Tackle Guide Service

Check us out in the the May/June 2009 issue of Fly Fishing in Salt Waters magazine we're the featured guide service for Maine Saltwater sportfishing (pg. 76) Spring "Hot Spots" section. "Maine is shaking off the cool weather in a big way, which means it's time to enjoy the sun and catch that fish of a lifetime. June is time for huge Stripers and Bluefish on the flats. If that isn't enough, how about throwing a 14wt at busting Bluefin Tuna. Fly Fishing for "football" Bluefins has been getting more and more popular in Maine"

Reporting from the cape...Super Fly Salty Anglers Club" member Capt. Nick Santolucito of The Buzzards Bay Angler Reports: Nick Santolucito (Boston, MA) wrote
at 9:43pm yesterday
Buzzards Bay is starting to heat up fast! The Striper numbers have been increasing over the past few weeks, with many reports of fish being taken in the 40"+ class. The Blues are back in town as well. I took 6 this past weekend all in the 8-10lb range. They were willing to take chunks at the turn of the tide, but weren't eager to school up on the surface due to the chop. We are holding an extraordinary amount of bait down here also - if things keep progressing at this rate, we will be in for a very strong season!


For those fishing southern waters... "Super Fly Salty Anglers Club" member Capt. Dave Sutton of On The Flats Charters reports: Dave Sutton (Miami, FL) wrote at 8:22am yesterday
I am hoping the winds will calm down for June. This is one of the best months here in the Keys for the Tarpon. The Oceanside fish will be going both north and south after the worm fest of May and the inside fish will lay-up on our golden sandy colored flats making perfect targets on the long rod. I have been having great luck with the color peach on my tarpon flies this year and also the Tarpon Bunnies & Toad patterns.


If you're looking to fish with us season...please call us soon for available dates!!! We are taking reservations daily. Don't forget to ask about our evening blitz trip...It's becoming a guest favorite!!! Capt. George Harris

2009 Season Overview:
Maine Striper Fishing: June thru September
Super Fly Charters provides friendly professional guided fly & light tackle fishing trips for Striped Bass, Bluefish & "football" Bluefin Tuna. We Serve an area from Eastern Casco Bay to Western Penobscot Bay including the mighty Kennebec river and it's many tributaries. An area covering an astonishing 1000 miles of the Maine Striper Coast. We focus our efforts on the rocky coast & islands of Muscongus Bay & untouched saltwater flats & rips of the lower St. George river.

Starting in late May, the coast of Maine is invaded by a "thousand mile long convoy" of ravenous Striped Bass that pour into the numerous coastal rivers and bays to feed on the vast schools of bait fish. June offers nearly non-stop action with "schoolie" Stripers in the 18-30 inch range. By July, Bluefish join the fray with amazing surface "blitzes" that churn the waters. Huge Striped Bass cruise the flats & lie in deep rips attacking any bait that passes by. August sees the arrival of "football" Bluefin Tuna, in the 50 to 200 pound range that crash into hapless bait balls on the surface of near shore waters with action that lasts through the Fall. September - October offers unbelievable action on Striper, Bluefish, and "Football" Tuna as acres and acres of fish gorge themselves on Peanut Bunker, Herring, Sandeels and Atlantic Mackerel; to fatten-up as the first cold fronts of autumn send these game fish off on their southerly migration.

The Rocky Coast of Maine, which is said have have over 3500 miles of jagged coastline is comprised of thousands of acres of sand, mud & eelgrass flats , all of which are subject to a huge 8 to 10 foot tidal range leaving many of the flats bare or nearly bare at low water. As the tide begins to flood these flats the plentiful baitfish, marine worms & crustaceans begin to feed in the nutrient rich waters. Hungry Stripers know this and feed aggressively, swirling and slashing, their silvery bodies glinting like mirrors as they forage in gin clear shallow water of the flats. This activity makes the Striped Bass perfect sight casting targets for fly & light tackle anglers.
We take advantage of the big tides by fishing the powerful tide rips that form as the heavy current rushes past underwater structure. Striped Bass line up in the current gorging themselves on the smorgasbord of baitfish that get trapped in the turbulent current.

With Maine's jagged & rocky shoreline, spruce studded islands, sandy beaches, and tide marshes, the fishing possibilities are nearly endless!!!
