Maine Striper Fishing Report July 23rd, 2012

Today I had Curran & Tom Lemp aboard for some Striper fishing and instruction...The Lemp family has had a summer place on the Kennebec watershed for many generations but have had very little success with striped bass fishing which is what led them to me...I had no doubt that I could help them conquer their Unicorn!! After deciding to alter my gameplan to fish inside the river due to choppy sea conditions at my oceanside hotspots, We met at the dock in the early morning before sunrise and cruised down river to a set of shallow flats that have been loaded with nice sized but hard to feed stripers...It was evident the stripers were present by their swirls and wakes...we worked a few of the flats and spooked a number of chunky stripers before we got an explosive strike in a little more than a foot of watter and Curran did a masterful Job of playing his fish straight into the net after a short but powerful fight...The curse of the Kennebec stripers has been lifted for the Lemp family and I expect to see their success rates soar just as I have seen with many other Kennebec'rs who've fished with me over the years

Our very popular live baiting trips continue to be highly successful and offer plenty of excitement and a good shot of adrenaline when a big striper ferociously smashes a live mackerel and burns rubber away from the boat!!! Some of our other trip options have had mixed success rates. Fly fishing on the flats have had some good opportunities for sight casting to fish but the Stripers are well fed and so skittish from all the guys out there pounding the snot out the water that they'll seldom eat a fly this time of extremely challenging sport that is very rewarding when you get a fish to eat..such is life for the fly guys...September will be a different story!!! ...

Good job captain. The Lemps join the long list of Kennebecers who will have more success due to Super Fly.
