Maine Striper Fishing September 10th, 2011

The big seas & surf that was causing us trouble the last few days, thankfully flattened out today which allowed us to go to work on some hungry stripers ...Like all fishermen we have had our tough days too...over the course of a season no guide / angler is immune to that..but by following the most basic formula of fishing ideal water temps, patterning baitfish movements and tidal currents and by continuously making small but necessary adjustments to our presentations...we have for the most part been able to enjoy a nice steady pick of jumbo stripers while fishing the oceanfront beaches, bays, rocky headlands and tide rips.
When choosing a saltwater guide service...please remember that there is no substitute for the real, everyday experience of a full time guide!!! 
Over the course of the next 4-6 weeks we should be experiencing the best fishing of the season..bait of all shapes & sizes is balling up everywhere....sandeels, peanut bunker, mackerel & herring have been giving the striped bass plenty to gorge on....we have had some great success targeting big stripers fishing a variety of habitat & tides.All of the biggest fish that we have caught this season have come under bright sun in shallow water...As many of you know live bait fishing has been as deadly as it is exciting...the use of live bait has also given us some great opportunities to target stripers with fly & light tackle..a ballooned mack often softens up a jumbo stripers inhibitions and a well placed cast near a ballooned mack with a fly or artificial can result in some truly explosive strikes....just last week I had an angler have a rod nearly ripped from his hand by a 40+ inch fish that he caught while throwing a rapala x-rap near a ballooned live chummer!!! Classic bait & switch technique AWESOME STUFF!!!..
...good fishing will develop in the the kennebec as the fall run begins and we will chase those fish into casco bay as they migrate south...Dial us up if you want in on the action  207-691-0746
