Maine Striper Fishing With Super Fly Charters: Kennebec River June23rd, 2011

Kennebec River Striped Bass Fishing With Super Fly Charters

This morning saw the weather shift from the mildly warm with bright blues skies kinda days, you know...Classic Chamber of Commerce type dark skies and wet rainy weather with an easterly wind component....whoever coined the phrase "wind from the east fishing the least" forgot to send that memo to the Stripers!!! Despite this negative shift in weather, John Fielding from Virginia decided that he wanted to go Striper fishing...We met at the dock in Bath at 5:30am this morning, We donned our foul weather gear and shoved off for an early morning run down the Kennebec river...I had planned to fish some flats that have been somewhat productive, not oh my god good, but steady fishing...The last of the incoming and first of the outgoing tides proved to be pretty bleak...bait was popping up here and there and there were sporadic bird shows...but no follows...and simply no luck!!!
I think that at that point...John might have been thinking about calling it quits...I had another plan though...the outgoing tide was starting to build steam so I blasted a few miles upriver, chasing the tide...My first stop of the second half of the trip was just what the doctor had ordered for a wet, cold morning...A tight line and a 30" striper...Amazing how one fish can completely re-energize you!!!...second drift....another fish....then another fish...a mini blitz erupted and John got tight to another fish after he cast into the melee...after that...the fish became wise to our off we went, once again chasing the stop...same result fish on the first drift...a double header in fact...Just like that our trip turned from skunkfest to slayfest...Tenacity and perseverance as well as our knowledge of the tides and how they flow over structure paid off once again...."A Graceful Recovery" Enabled Us To End The Trip With A BANG!!! Looking forward to getting John & his son Jack out on the water again in a couple of weeks
Give us a call on the Maine Striper Hotline to make arrangements for a guided saltwater fishing trip on Maine's famed Kennebec river 207-691-0745

Yup, and I was there watching it all! I turned my interest into making "popsicles" but nonetheless watched George and the Super Fly turn a miserable cold morning into a late hour fishing frenzy. Man, that guy can fish...
