Maine Striper Fishing Report: Super Fly Charters; July 12th, 2009...The Fun Continues!!!

Maine Striper Blitzes...Game On!!!



The fun continues!!! (7/12/09)




This morning I had a group of very good anglers from North Carolina aboard the boat. After leaving the south boat launch dock on the Kennebec we headed down river to fish some of the ledges where i've been finding good numbers of fish...We land on fish immediately and have a nice pick of fish for the next hour or so hooking and landing fish on nearly every drift through the rip....all the fish are holding deep in the current down near the bottom and the feed bag is on!!!! As the tide begins to slack the bite tapers off...so off we go in the hunt for big fish. We end up trying several spots that have produced for me lately...not much happening though as we work our way back upriver...As the end of the trip nears, I have a talk with the guys...asking them if they'd like to head back down river to see if we can get located on some fish...everyone agrees...and we blast back down river at full throttle. We get set up on a good drift over a ledge...no takers. One of the guys on the boat casually asks..."what are all those birds doing over there?"...I pick up my steiner bino's to get a closer look and the magnified image that I see sends a shot of adrenaline through my body....We quickly get our lines in and the rods stowed and quickly race to the unfolding blitz...As we slide up into casting range, we can clearly see busting stripers working underneath the whirling & diving birds...all three anglers cast into the melee...One throwing a topwater the other two throwing swimming plugs. The topwater draws immediate attention and is blasted several times on its way back to the boat but somehow the striper avoids the single treble attached to the tail of the popper. The angler on the bow is cranking the yo-zuri swimmer at a frantic pace when his rod doubles over into a deep bend...fish on!!! And so it would go for the next half hour as we happily chased birds and busting bass over the flats of the lower Kennebec river...we ended up boating several more nice chunky fish and end the trip with a bang!!! With the guys all agreeing that this was what they came to Maine to see!!! I'm hoping to see these guys again in september.
