Maine Striper fishing Reports 2011: Choosing a Guide Service

Greetings Everone...Welcome to my Super Fly Charters fishing reports page!!!

For those of you out there whom have not yet fished with me and are currently in the difficult process of selecting a fly & light tackle guide service for the 2011 season...to help you with this process I'd like to provide you with a bit of background info about myself describing how passionate I am about living the "Salt Life" on the coast of Maine, saltwater fishing and my fly & light tackle guide service. ~

...My name is Capt. George Harris, I am a full time saltwater fishing guide/commercial fisherman/waterman and a native of coastal Maine. Growing up in the small commercial fishing port of Rockland, I now reside nearby in the "WILD'S OF WARREN", on the banks of the St. George river...Working on and around the ocean is the only thing that I know...I have spent my entire lifetime fishing here, as well as a long 6 year stint living & fishing on both coasts of Florida, constantly perfecting and broadening the skills of my craft and it's my genuine pleasure to be able to share all that I have learned with you...

I was extremely fortunate to have become a saltwater angler at a very young age, quickly becoming addicted to the sport...The species of fish mattered very little to me...I was just as happy jigging mackeral, flounder, squid, and rock bass as I was catching the more elusive Striped Bass and Bluefish and to an extent...that still rings true!!!...growing up in the midcoast area, the waters between Casco Bay and Penobscot Bay became my playground. I have explored much of this region by boat, on foot, by canoe/kayak, with mask snorkel & fins...even with a cleverly designed home built raft or two...As an adventurous youngster, I was dubbed by much of the New England press, "a modern day Tom Sawyer" for my on the water exploits!!!

In the early 1990's...I packed all of my belongings into my battered Subaru 4X4 "fish wagon", left the Maine coast behind me and moved south to Florida to satisfy the overwhelming craving for year round saltwater fishing...It was on these proving grounds that I honed my fishing skills, prowling the beaches, flats & mangrove shorelines, passes & inlets around the Indian river near Port St.Lucie & Stuart on the east coast and Pine Island Sound, Charlotte Harbor, Tampa Bay with much of my focus on the waters from Egmont Key to Anclote key in the Gulf of Mexico...fishing for Redfish, Trout, Snook & Tarpon and many other species, spending over 250 days each year on the water. An avid SCUBA & Breathhold "free diver", I also spent considerable time underwater pursuing underwater giants like Grouper, Snapper, Hogfish, Sheepshead, Amberjack & Kingfish with the speargun!!!

With the amazing Striped Bass resurgence taking place in New England, my obsession turned into profession as I migrated back to my home waters to guide for Stripers, Bluefish, Shark, Cod & Tuna off coastal Maine. Capitalizing on a lifetime of experience fishing the Maine coast...We operate our fishing charters in the Mid-Coast region of Maine, from Casco Bay to Penobscot Bay. This area features an astonishing 1000 miles of jagged, pristine coastline. We focus our efforts on the broad reach of the lower Kennebec river estuary with its countless thousands of acres of untouched saltwater flats, gnarly tides that rip over rocky structure and an intricate maze of never ending backcountry channels, It's a fly & light tackle fishermans nirvana. On any given day we can be found fishing coastal tide marshes, shallow flats, sandy beaches and islands or ledges located offshore. Wherever the fish are!!!
My experiences as an international angler have led me to the fabled Bonefish waters of Great Abaco, Bahamas as well as bluewater fishing off it's outer chain of Cays...We have fished the north drop off Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic for Marlin, Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna and more and our excursions have led us further south to the storied Central American fishing ports of Herrudura, Quepos & Golfito, Costa Rica fishing for Snook, Roosterfish, Cubera, Tuna, Sailfish and many other bluewater giants... whether it's on the fly...pitching plugs or live lining frisky live baits we've got you covered check out our website for all of our trip offerings...and stay tuned for some new trips options for 2011

If you're intrigued about the Striped Bass, Bluefish, Shark, Bluefin Tuna and Cod fishing that we can offer you and would like to discuss it in more detail...please feel free to give us a call or shoot us an email....Also for those who have been asking there is still plenty of time to purchase that holiday gift certificate for your loved ones...
We can customize a gift certificate for any of the guided trips that we offer...
As an added bonus all of our trips are currently $50.00 off our listed rates!!!

Super Fly Charters: Your #1 Source For Maine Saltwater Fishing Reports, Guided Trips & Charters

(Rich Tudor and Son team up for some Kennebec Stripers)
Here at Super Fly Charters We're continuously looking for new ways to raise the bar higher and higher...Our goal, as always, is to provide the best service available to our anglers...All of our trips are customized for the individual angler...To accomplish this, we listen to our anglers needs and advise them accordingly rather than push a certain style of fishing on them, let's face it, we've all fished with "Capt. Awesome" and have had to endure the ensuing brag fest of all of his blah blah blah accomplishments...Well let me assure you that there are no huge ego's or elitist attitudes here...we'd much rather impress you with a fun, laid back, quality fishing experience...That's just the way we roll!!!...So while "Capt. Hollywood" preps his hall of fame speech...We'll quietly keep on doing what we do best....continue to offer you some of the very best saltwater fishing experiences that New England has to offer.
We have some new trip options that we're working on to help us better serve YOU the angler so please stay tuned for these exciting new offerings that we'll be rolling out for 2011 and beyond...just a few examples of our current offerings are "Monster Fishing" with fly and light tackle...This full day trip was designed for the angler who wants to "go big or go home"...reminiscent of a nat geo show, this blood, sweat and tears style of fishing will test your nerves as well as your stamina as we target some of the largest, most ferocious, tackle busting pelagic Sharks & Tuna that swim in the Gulf of Maine...We utilize "run & gun" techniques for Tuna and "chum & gun" techniques for Shark...yeah all on fly & light tackle as well as "stand-up" gear!!! Our action packed groundfish trip is a total blast...we cruise offshore to the ledges and banks and while whales roll all around us, we'll drop our "butterfly" jigs with lightweight spin and conventional tackle for tasty bottom fish species like Cod, Haddock and Pollock...if you love Grouper and Snapper fishing down south...this trip is right up your alley...
One of our more unusual trip offerings involves fishing for an exotic invasive species that unfairly gets a bad rap...The mighty or lowly Carp (depending on your point of view...LOL!!!) To us, if it has fins, we're going after it...it's just that simple. The Carp, A revered game fish in Europe for decades as well as a less than revered target in many regions across the United States, Carp fishing here in Maine is slowly starting to catch on...I've played around with Carp off and on since I was a little kid...back then the techniques were quite simple...The game is much different now as we have decided to embrace these lumbering red-headed step children of the flats using fly and light tackle gear, so if "rough fish" are your thing, you'll love our Merrymeeting Bay "Trash Can Tarpon" trip...These bizarrely behaving brutes can be taken on the fly and they respond very well to a combination of artificial and natural baits on ultra light spin gear.
Our most popular offering over the years has been our inshore trip for Striped Bass & Bluefish with fly & light tackle...This trip takes place in the Mid-Coast region of Maine, from Casco Bay to Penobscot Bay...an area featuring an astonishing 1000 miles of jagged, pristine shoreline habitat. We focus our efforts on the broad reach of the lower Kennebec River system including Merrymeeting Bay and it's adjacent tidal estuaries...This dynamic fishery consists of thousands of acres of untouched saltwater flats, gnarly tides that rip over rocky structure and an intricate maze of never ending backcountry channels. It's a fly & light tackle fisherman's nirvana!!! We recognize the fact that out on the water, there are no fences holding fish in specific areas, so to better serve our anglers, we trailer our boats...staying mobile is going to be the key in 2011...we're not married to specific areas...If the bite heats up north or south of our home base on the Kennebec River region we'll simply haul the 21' Parker or the smaller more nimble 17' shallow draft skiff to where the hottest action is...this nomadic mobility allows us to access the incredibly scenic and fish rich waters of Penobscot Bay, Muscongus Bay & Sheepscot Bay to the north and to the south we'll explore the diverse fisheries around the Calendar islands of Casco Bay & further down the coast the Scarborough Marsh, Saco Bay, and the Saco River...On any given day we can be found fishing coastal tide marshes, shallow flats, sandy beaches and islands or ledges located offshore....Basically wherever the fish are biting best & whatever fish are biting best!!!
Whether it's on the fly...pitching plugs or live lining frisky live baits we've got you covered!!! Check out our website for all of our trip offerings...and stay tuned for some exciting new trips options for 2011<*{{{>{

(Chris Oliver getting introduced to his backing by a fat Kennebec River Striper)

December Booking Special: WOW!!! Anglers booking any guided trip before Jan. 1st, 2011 will receive $50.00 dollars off on any guided trips listed on our menu...To continuously grow our business, we offer an extensive variety of saltwater/tidewater trip options that is second to none on the Maine coast...An obvious benefit of this awesome trip selection is that we rarely ever have to cancel a trip due to rough conditions...or if the bite of your first choice species happens to be in a slow period...we can instantly switch gears and head in a different direction with a new target species...there is no need for you to ever lose time on the water or get stuck in some tough fishing conditions!!! As a full time guide/waterman and a native of coastal Maine, I have spent my entire lifetime here, as well as a long 6 year stint living on both coasts of Florida, constantly perfecting and broadening the skills of my craft and it's my genuine pleasure to be able to share all that I have learned with you.
The majority of our anglers opt for the ever popular fly & light tackle trips for hard fighting Stripers & Bluefish...the ultimate saltwater experience for fishing the inshore coastal waters of Maine!!!
For youngsters...you can't go wrong with the 4 hr kids fishing trip for Mackerel, Pollock and Striped Bass..basically whatever is biting the best to keep the kids interest level sky high!!! Your kids will be worn out after this adventure ends...but they'll never forget it!!!..Like all of our trips, the kids trip can be customized to include an intro to fly or light tackle fishing lesson and many other instructional options...
Offshore we offer 6 & 8 hr "bottom bashing" trips for tasty groundfish species...Cod fishing on light weight butterfly jigging gear is a total blast or if big game fishing is what you're looking for, get pinned to the rail with the "Monster Fishing" trip for Shark & Tuna...
For the fisherman that prefers fishing from shore or wading, we provide walk in style fishing on some of Maine's most pristine beaches and marshes...
Winter months we offer the traditional Maine experience of ice fishing on the frozen waters of Great Salt Bay...the quarry is the tasty Smelt...We target this pint sized yet super aggressive and very delicious fish species using hyper sensitive jigging rods equipped with a tiny bait tipped jig...
Some of our other trip options will include tidal Smallmouth Bass, Shad on the fly, Moonlight Stripers, and even a limited number of night Squid Jigging trips when the run is at it's peak...fresh calamari anyone!!!

Maine Saltwater Fishing Charters, Guided Trips & Reports 2010: Super Fly Charters

October 24th, 2010 trip report. After a long, productive and very fun season, the Striped Bass have all but left Maine waters...But hey...that doesn't have to mean that our saltwater fishing season has to end...Case in point was our groundfishing trip yesterday. Chris Oliver & John Coppola met me at the dock at 6:30 am...the air temp was chilly, in the low 30's, but we were dressed for the conditions....After going through my safety check list, We cast off our lines, left the dock and blasted down the St. George river at a brisk 30knot clip...we soon cleared the mouth of the river and left the Georges islands behind us as we headed across Muscongus Bay on flat ass calm seas, bound for some ledges ESE of Monhegan island. After a 30 minute run from the dock we arrived on the numbers and got set to drop our jigs into the depths below us...Chris was armed with a Shimano Stella , Trevala butterfly jigging combo as well as an Avet lever drag reel on a butterfly jigging rod...attached to his leaders were Williamson vortex jig and teaser rig...John was set up with a Shimano Stradic , Trevala butterfly jigging combo...John was using the standard  diamond jig with teaser rig...My rig was a Daiwa Saltiga conventional reel mounted to a nomad travel rod with a diamond jig teaser rig...All the tackle that we used is not the traditional broomstick gear commonly associated with bottom fishing, rather we use very sensitive & lightweight yet extremely powerful graphite rods that are a joy to use for hours on end...the ultrathin braided superlines loaded on our high speed reels allow us to feel the lightest of bites even in depths of several hundred feet!!!...Our first drop was in about 90 feet of water...As soon as our jigs hit bottom they are hammered immediately and all three of our rods are thumping with the weight of nice fat 8-10 pound keeper sized cod...This action would continue for several hours as we methodically worked the structure below...often our jigs would get nailed on the drop so it was important to keep a watchful eye on the line as the jigs rocketed toward the bottom...if the line stopped moving, it was because a cod had slammed the jig on the fall...when this happened, we quickly engage the drag and set the hook on the fish...most of our strikes came on the jig itself but many hits were on the teaser, we even had some doubles where we caught cod on both the jig and teaser. Along with the dozens of cod that we caught we also caught Pollock, Acadian Redfish and a few other rockfish species...At the end of the day everyone went home with some nice filet's and some sore arms to show for it

2010 Maine Saltwater Fishing Reports With Capt. George Harris & Super Fly Charters

Our saltwater fishing season is just about over...sure...we've still got a handful Striper trips to do...and weather permitting, some groundfish trips for Cod. A couple of more weeks and the boat will be under cover and most of the tackle put away...I still plan to offer some fly & light tackle "sea run" Brown Trout trips on some of midcoast Maine's tidal estuaries...also we'll be targeting the fall open water smelt runs that occur in many of the tidal creeks and estuaries...this is a fun fishery that not many anglers participate in...Smelt are not considered to be a great sportfish however they are great eats on the table and taking part in this non-traditional activity is a great way to spend time in the outdoors

(Check out some of our 2010 season highlights)


If you're looking to get in on the late season action with Super Fly Charters We're dialed in on the fish...give us a call before it's too late. We still have lots of great fishing left between now and the end of October so please contact us to reserve a tide or two..

Maine Saltwater Fishing Charters: October fishing Report, 2010

The hits just keep on coming...whether it's Kennebec stripers or offshore groundfish...Super Fly has 'em dialed in!!

10/12/10- Another great day of Striper fishing on the Kennebec...Tom & Renee from Arizona joined me for the day as they made a pitstop in Bath during their tour up the Maine coast....for Renee it was all about the foliage, the lobsterboats, the lighthouses and the wildlife....for Tom it was simply all about the Striped Bass....and we found plenty of everything for both of them to enjoy!!!
10/11/10- Spent another morning with the Baur brothers from Kansas City, Missouri...A few days ago Bruce & Kyle spent the day bashing Striped Bass on the Kennebec river...today we headed ESE of Monhegan in pursuit of groundfish...as soon as our butterfly jigs hit bottom we were instantly hooked up with a pair of keeper cod...this continued for a few hours as cod after cod slammed our jigs!!!


if you're looking to get in on the action with Super Fly Charters We're dialed in on the fish...give us a call before it's too late. We still have lots of great fishing left between now and the end of October so please contact us to reserve a tide or two..

Maine Striper Fishing Report: Super Fly Charters 10/10/10

What do a couple of fishing guides do on their day off?...they go fishing of course!!!



Yesterday I was left without a charter due to extremely windy conditions...after a brief chat with fellow guide Capt. Dan Wolotsky of Sweet Action Charters I was invited to join him and his crew of Matt & Mark....Dan & his crew blacked out the livewell with striper crack before picking me up at the public dock in Bath...A short run led us to a stretch of river where I had some good success the day before. Conditions were not ideal...we were greeted by a screaming NW wind that was blowing directly into a ripping incoming tide...a scenario that makes it almost impossible to get into a good drift pattern...we made the best of the situation by power drifting into the wind...a drift or two later & we were tight to the first fish, a fat 28 incher...a drift or two later and Matt & Mark were hooked up with a double header, one of which came unbuttoned. A few drifts later Capt. Dan is hooked up with a fat fish which he boats in short order...we continued to battle the wind and tide and managed to stick another keeper fish in the cooler...Eventually everyone had their fill and Capt Dan & his crew had to head back to Boothbay Harbor...another great day on the water. Capt. Dan and I saw lots of each other this summer as we both fish alot of the same waters and share lots of info...but this was the first day we've actually been able to fish together...Capt. Dan Wolotsky is one of the hardest working and most professional guides on the Maine coast...Capt. Dan specializes in livebait Striper fishing and putting smiles on his clients faces...everyone who fishes with Dan loves his laid back attitude and his uncanny ability to sniff out fish even under the toughest conditions...yeah he's one fishy dude!!!

As for us at Super Fly Charters We're dialed in on the fish...give us a call before it's too late. We still have lots of great fishing left between now and the end of October so please contact us to reserve a tide or two..

Maine Striped Bass Fishing Report; Capt. George Harris: Super Fly Charters October 8th, 2010

Maine's Kennebec is still fishing very well

Striped Bass are still dropping down into the lower Kennebec in solid numbers...we hit them hard today during the incoming tide. Fat healthy stripers crushed our baits with reckless abandon. We should continue to see good numbers of Striped Bass for another two weeks...I'm planning on being out there...are you?

Give us a call if you'd like to hop aboard for a late season striper fix.We're dialed in on the fish...so give us a call before it's too late. We still have lots of great fishing left between now and the end of October

Maine Striper Fishing Super Fly Charters; Kennebec River Report: October 4th 2010

Maine Striper Fishing Continues Into October
The Striper fishing here in midcoast Maine remains strong...We've been seeing good numbers of fish on the Kennebec river. Loads of bait is dropping downriver and hungry Striped Bass are lining up on the ledges to gorge. Huge schools of spike mackerel continue to roam just offshore...juvenile herring are dumping out of the Major rivers in huge schools....couple this with very warm water temps and it sets the stage for a couple of more weeks of great fishing...Most of the fish we're seeing are on the plus side of 30 inches, which makes for great sport on fly and like tackle. The morning runs have been chilly...we're no longer in hawaiian shorts and flip flops as we blast down the river in the mornings. The leaves have started to change to brilliant fall colors providing some spectacular scenery and making for some great back drops for big fish photo ops.

We recently participated in the 2010 Kennebec Pro-Am Benefit Fly Fishing Tournament...the tourney fleet faced some tough conditions including a long slack tide period but "Team Super-Fly" captained by myself and anglers Jan Leth & Mark Davis managed to take home top honors...angler Mark Davis caught the winning fish with a mere 15 minutes to go before the tourny ended...a fatty 28 incher caught by dredging a 6 inch black snakefly in about 15 feet of water over rocky bottom structure.

We're dialed in on the fish...give us a call before it's too late. We still have lots of great fishing left between now and the end of October so please contact us to reserve a tide or two..

Maine Striper Fishing Report Super Fly Charters; Kennebec River 9/14/2010

Fall Run Striper Madness Begins

The past week of fishing on Maine's Kennebec river has ranged from very good to downright phenomenal...today was one of those days that I would classify as being phenomenal.
Big stripers are now finally starting to become active as the water temps slowly cool back down into the Stripers comfort range...Huge clouds of sandeels can be found out on the oceanfront sandflats and spike mackerel are swarming the coastline in untold numbers....ad to this mix juvenile alewives and peanut bunker and you come up with a recipe that sets the table for the fall run of stripers to begin...So far we have not seen the true beginning of the southerly push of migrating stripers but what we have found is that the Striped bass have begun to gorge in preparation of their long Journey south...Water temps are still very warm which means that we'll probably see great fishing well into Otober!!!

Maine Striper Fishing: Kennebec River Sept 11th, 2010

Striper Fishing On Maine's Kennebec River Is In Full Swing

Over the course of the last week...we have seen dramatic improvements in the Striped Bass fishery in the midcoast region. Dropping water temps have sparked some tremendous fishing opportunities. Time of day has not mattered as much as tidal movement. We have been seeing some great action fishing fast water moving over structure...We've also been seeing some sporadic blitz activity. Fly fish along the edges of the flats has been working. Tons of bait and nice stable weather will keep the Stripers feeding in the kennebec river system for another 5 weeks before we have to start chasing them south. I have some awesome tides available next week...so give us a call to take advantage of the best fishing of the season!!!

Maine Striper Fishing Report: Kennebec River, September 2nd, 2010

Maine Saltwater Fishing Heats Up In September

September is upon us and that means one thing...FALL RUN STRIPERS!!! yeah thats right cooling water temps will put the stripers into overdrive over the next 5-6 weeks...we should see some pretty spectacular fishing as stripers, bluefish and tuna begin to gorge on the huge schools of baitfish...this morning on a crystal clear oceanside sand flat...we got into a school of jumbo stripers feeding on tiny sandeeels in about 2 feet of water...after the stripers moved on the Bluefish moved in in huge schools ravaging the flats in wolfpack formation...we'd see them finning acrossed the shallows, cast our flies and plugs into the schools...the result...huge boils and a burning drag....life is good!!!

Maine Saltwater Fishing With Super Fly Charters August 12th, 2010 Report

This past week has seen some up's and downs in the fishing conditions in the Kennebec region. Warm water in the river has kept the stripers holding on deeper water structure...while out on the oceanside flats we've had some success fishing for Striped Bass during the incoming tides that flood the shallow sand flats and marshy areas with cool clear water.
Bluefish remain active and we've been able to get in on some sporadic but very exciting blitzes...topwater plugs draw plenty of awesome strikes and swimming plugs get slammed when pitched into a surface feed.
Reports indicate that juvenile alewives have begun their descent down the rivers and will soon be making their way through the estuaries...this should provoke some excellent fishing that'll last into the fall run season. Offshore...football bluefin tuna reports indicate spotty action....I have been so busy doing striped bass charters that I haven't been able get out to pursue those powerful and elusive speedsters...I have some Tuna trips coming up soon so hopefully I'll have some good news to report.



Still lots of great fishing left between now and mid October so please contact us to reserve a tide or two..

Maine Saltwater Fishing Report August 4th, 2010

Slammer Bluefish Invade Midcoast Maine

This afternoon we had tremendous success with slammer bluefish...Acres of busting bluefish provided us with amazing light tackle action...poppers & swimming plugs got crushed over & over again.
The striper fishing has been slow for the last few days but cooling water temps and a fresh influx of bait should spark some excellent fishing...no secret here..targeting stripers on the ledges with fast current is producing best as usual...another bright spot has been being out on the sand flats during the incoming tide...we've had some very good success with striped bass that have been feeding in some very clear shallow water.
Kennebec River "fishin magician" Ray Paradis reports seeing awesome tuna blitzes at location-x somewhere west of Seguin...when I can get a chance break away from doing striper/bluefish trips...I'll have to get out there to take a peak.

Still lots of great fishing left between now and mid October so please contact us to reserve a tide or two..

Maine Striper Fishing Report July 28th, 2010

Maine Saltwater Fishing Report July 28, 2010; Kennebec River Striper Fishing Remains Solid

This past week has been very busy for us...we've mostly focused on the Striped Bass fishery of the Kennebec River...7/23,I had Dennis Kelly return from Sag Harbor,NY...Dennis has tagged over 12000 striped bass in his career...He was able to tag close to two dozen stripers on this trip...not too bad for fishing one rod....Dennis is a great fisherman and hopefully i'll see return next month or in September...Most of the Stripers that we're seeing are still holding on the ledges with fast water moving over them...Fly fishing has been best during the lower light levels and at certain stages of the tide...remember that it is mid summer here and the water is warm...the stripers are well fed and they're not feeding with reckless abandon like they'll be doing in september...For the most part, We've been able to pattern where they're feeding and at what stages of the tide
Yesterday I had Ed Hennessey and his grandkids aboard along with Gary Darby. Ed owns beautiful 60 acre Davis Island, located off Port Clyde, Maine. I'd been contacted by island caretaker Gary Darby who expressed to me that they'd been having a hard time getting located on the stripers...I put a game plan together and we hit the Kennebec river in search of Striped Bass...the fishing started off slow but as the incoming tide started to cook...we started scoring good numbers of fish over the ledges...Ed's grand son boated several nice stripers and decided that he wanted to try my trick rod...a short but stout 24" jigging rod designed to jig lake trout through the ice, when the bite is cranking it's a good way to add some fun especially with kids aboard...young Ed was able to boat several more stripers with the trick rod..., which he seemed to be quite proud of Everyone on board caught some nice stripers too...most likely I'll be seeing them again in a week or two.

Maine Striper Fishing Report: Kennebec River July 21st, 2010

Maine's Kennebec river is producing some of the best Striped Bass fishing in the State of Maine right now!!!

Today I had the privilege of guiding, Florida Key's guide & Co-host of Versus TV's saltwater fishing show "Saltwater Experience", Capt. Rich Tudor...He seemed intrigued about our ripping currents and big tides so we set the date....After meeting in Bath we headed off to one of the many ledges that have been so productive for us...A quick explanation of what we were going to do and we went lines in...10 seconds later...we were into our first Striper of the morning...next drift we get slammed again...then again and again...Ok Capt. Rich is clearly impressed by our fishery now. We continues to work the area for another hour or so before blasting off downriver chasing the tide...as we slide into the next rip immediately our rods are torqued way over with the weight of hard running stripers. Next drift another double...then a triple....wow...When I crawled out of bed this morning at 3:00am to get prepped fro the trip, I knew that we were going to have a great trip...As always, It was nice to have the chance to showcase the wonderful Striped Bass fishery that we have here in Maine...I didn't let the opportunity pass...Captain Rich got to see first hand what we see on a daily basis as we slid into drift after drift only to be greeted by powerful tugs sreaming drags and rods bent to the grip...
