Maine Striper Fishing Report: Kennebec River July 26th , 2009

Maine Striper Fishing....WOW...The Fish Were Chewin' Holes In The Boat Today!!!
(Photos Capt. George Harris)






Another awesome trip today...I had a group of avid Striper fishermen from Salem, Massachusetts on the boat...And we went on a striped bass witch hunt!!! Dave, Alan, Mark and Al....All great guys and a load of fun to have on the boat. After leaving the dock in Bath, we headed to my first location and immediately got the skunk off the boat...another fish came aboard shortly after....i'm not feeling this location though, I know two quick fish would normally make me think that I might want to hang around for awhile...this morning though, things are looking really fishy so I made a quick decision to head to another location that has really been producing during the right tide phase and I wanted to put these guys on a pile of fish...So i blast off into the fog and drizle...upon arriving we were greeted by the classic scene that Striped Bass fishermen have come to love...diving birds and swirling Stripers...Everything looked just how I had hoped it would...and we have it all to ourselves...so we went to work...as we slide into the rip one of our rods gets nailed and we quickly land the fat striper...then we get nailed again....and again...over and over we get slammed by hungry stripers....Ok...we're really having fun now!!! After several productive drifts, I make a quick cell call to another guide to tell him that the bite is going off!!! A handful of other boats show up after seeing us hooking up doubles...whatever!!!We're happily on fish...Al then hooks another decent fish that screams off into the ripping current...nope, Al is having none of that and quickly puts the screws to his runaway Striper...once he gets the fish to boatside the fish decides to make one last run straight under the boat and POW!!! Al's rod(mine actually)explodes into shards of splintered graphite...he's still stays tight to the fish and we manage to land it anyway...The bite tapers off to one fish per drift, so we make a move to another nearby ledge...I know dumb move...leaving fish to find fish...but this is one of those fishy mornings.. The next ledge is completely covered up in hungry fish and the bite is on...and we have it all to ourselves after leaving the muggers behind. Getting set up for the drift, I tell the guys to get ready as we approach the structure and as if on cue our light spinning rods double over with the weight of hefty slot fish...we boat numerous more fish in a short time near the bottom of the tide...as the tide goes slack...predictably...so does the bite...but hey what a great morning of fishing....I headed back to the dock with some happy anglers that landed many, many stripers between 24 and 35 inches...and another severe case of striper thumbs...

This is what Dr. David Wolf said aboat this trip "Captain George can't control the weather and that is my only complaint about our fishing day! It was a great day fishing with Captain George Harris...on his birthday none-the-less!! George had us on Stripers for the whole trip!
If you are looking for a great fishing guide on the Kennebec River in Maine Captain George is the guy for the job.

Thanks for spending your birthday with us!"
