Maine Striper Fishing September 6th, 2012

Fished with Ray Paradis today...Ray has a masters degree in live bait fishing and is working on a Phd..We left the dock at the Kennebec tavern at around 10am and cruised downriver into sheepscot bay without a real plan except to try to score some live macks for baiting up some stripers...hitting our usual bait spot we picked up a couple dozen macks and ran west across a lumpy sea that was breaking big time on the shoals and ledges...approaching the mouth of the Kennebec we made the wise decision not to push further west but instead hit up one of the shallow back bay spots that usually has some decent action with broad shouldered 30" class stripers...we were a little early but we snaked our way in and got our baits set up...It didn't take long before our baits started getting slammed by chunky stripers...We had to pull the anchor and chase down one hard charging fish that burned off a big run of line and managed to wrap us around a mooring ball berore charging out across a shallow flat...with some skillful boat handling and a little bit of luck we managed to clear the line and boated the mid 30" fish to put the exclamation point on one of many great trips that Ray & I have had over the last few years !!!

...and many more great trips to come. What a great day fishing with the Library of Congress of fishing guides on the Midcoast. Captain Harris has a wealth of knowledge second to none in this fishery, particularly in his favorite game fish the striped bass. I got a tutored lesson in a 1,000 square foot fishing hole today that I'll never forget. Just incredible...Thanks Cap!
