Maine Saltwater Fishing Reports: Bluefish Invasion August 2011

(08/23/2011) Tom & Andrew Walek from NY, NY enjoying some amazing fly & light tackle sight fishing for striped bass & bluefish on the lower Kennebec...nearly non stop action toaday!!! Yep...the fishing is good right now and should get better over the next 6-8 weeks!!! we have been quietly enjoying some pretty decent fishing & the majority of our fish have been taken in less than 2 feet of water...patience has been the key...slowly & methodically working an area has paid off for us almost every day...running around pounding the water will get you nowhere fast...
As we move forward into September the water temps will drop slightly and this will trigger the Bass to become much more active inside the Kennebec river and the huge schools that stack up on the ledges will begin to put the feedbag on, feeding day & night with the ebb and flow of the tides....time of day will no longer matter...tidal flow is everything this time of year...mid day or mid ready for some epic feeds!!!

there is no substitute for everyday experience of a full time saltwater guide!!! We are on the water everyday so dial us up to get in on some of the best fishing of the season!!! 207-691-0745

Maine Striper Fishing Report Kennebec River August 4th, 2011

7/3/2011 Yesterday I had repeat guest Bob McClements & his grandson Mason back aboard the Super Fly....last year young Mason put on quite a show as he slammed several nice sized Stripers...this season would be no different. This year I suggested that we run out to the bay to start the day by filling the livewell with Mackerel...a prime Striped Bass bait here on the Maine coast....After filling the livewell with enough Macks for a morning of fishing we cruised to one of the many productive ledges where Bob & Mason proceeded to each boat several nice sized Stripers including a couple of keepers for dinner!!!
