Kennebec River Striped Bass Report June 27th, 2013

Today was the kind of morning that makes the experienced Striper fisherman smile when the alarm goes off at 2:30am...Checking the weather forecast and seeing nothing but overcast skies and fog is a dream come true...Not exactly chamber of commerce weather but the kind of weather that makes for some of the best slay sessions of the year. My guests for the day were Dewitt & Jane John of Brunswick, Me. who were the lucky winning bidders of a Striped Bass trip Auction that I had donated to Stripers Forever, a conservation group dedicated to the pursuit of making Striped Bass a game fish coast wide. We set the date and met at the Kennebec Tavern Marina at 5am this morning and set off down the river with a ripping outbound tide at or backs...The first flat we drifted was a trial run to work out some of the kinks with casting, retrieving etc. Once we got that out of the way we moved on to the edge of a large sandbar where Dewitt quickly hooked up with the first fish of the day...Moving further downriver we hit another, slightly deeper, flat that was in full on national geographic mode...screaming gulls, dive bombing terns, the whole shebang!!
We would work this spot over for quite some time as we boated fish after fish before the tide slacked and the fish quieted stop produced a few more fish, and the next stop after that produced a nice double header... at this point we were just about done for the day when on the way back to the dock we came across another big school of stripers blitzing in a shallow cove just off the main channel of the river...We boated a few more fish here before throwing in the towel...Another great day on the Kennebec!!
