Maine Striper Fishing Report October 12th, 2012

Yesterday morning I had Dennis Kelly back aboard for another tagging session...Joining him were "ringers" Ray Paradis from Arrowsic & the Scarborough crew of Mike Giroux and Capt. Ben Gardner (Kristin K Charters)...We had a screeching WNW wind to contend with which made getting good drifts nearly impossible...that said we still managed to put 40+/- fish in the boat...In four trips to maine this season Dennis has tagged approx 160 Stripers and this trip put him over 13500 for his career!!! Still some really good fishing left but don't's going to be over soon!!

Maine Striper Fishing Reports October 6th, 2012

The Striped bass fishing continues to be very strong on the Kennebec watershed...This morning we fished the outgoing tide and as soon as the tide started to rip the Stripers smashed our jigs over and over again...We still have ideal water temps and vast schools of baitfish anchoring our stripers in place so don't hang the rods up just yet...PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH US ASAP TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE HOTTEST ACTION OF THE SEASON!!!

Maine Striper Fishing October 1st, 2012

The fishing on the Kennebec continues to rage on into the fall...every day we are putting big numbers of fish in the boat especially during peak tidal flows. Today I had Gary Eaton with his crew from Idexx back aboard the fishing did not dissappoint...right from the get go we jumped all over the stripers as soon as our jigs hit bottom they were getting slammed over and over again...I suspect this will continue for another 2-3 weeks before the fish move off to the south...We' are rolling right along and the rest of the week is filled with repeat clients starting with a double header tomorrow!!! Lots of fun times for those of us who have kept our heads in the game!!!
