Kennebec River Striped Bass Report July 28th, 2013

Another day of repeat clients...another slay session...If you've been keeping up with this blog than you know that we are on the fish daily...this does not happen by accident. My day starts at 2:30am and I am often prepping the boat for your trip in the pitch dark hours before the sun comes up...I do this mostly because I really want my clients to have the best possible chance to catch memorable fish...I also do this in small part due to my highly competitive nature...I have a strong desire to not let anyone on the water outwork me...This hard, behind the scenes, work often goes unnoticed but that doesn't matter to me...What does matter are the shots that my clients get to take at big stripers on a daily basis...That's what drives me and that's why I'm awake before my alarm goes off at 2:30am!!
(A nice fish that we caught on a shallow sand flat in less than 2 feet of water...many more would follow)

I can attest to the Captain's incredible work ethic. As a client, I see it first hand. As an angler and observer, I see him daily on the Kennebec. If anything else, look at his daily catches. Incredible. Want fish??? Dial 691-0745...

Thanks Ray!!
Just to keep it real...for me being a striper / saltwater fishing guide is not all about cruising up and down the Kennebec river slaying's 2:30 am alarm buzzers...It's broken rods and torn up gear...It's mechanical issues...fog & inclement weather...It's about being the Capt, Secretary, janitor and chief bottle washer...To be the guy that keeps all this running smoothly...ya gotta have some GRIT folks!!!
Today was my 45th chartered trip for the month of July...I'm sunburnt, sleep deprived, reek of mackerel & chum...I'm dead tired but I love it!!! Bring on August!! Tomorrow is a day off while the Yamaha techs at Jeff's Marine perform emergency prop shaft transplant surgery on my lower unit (rock vs. metal is bad combo) they're also going to take care of a few other mid season maintenance issues that I haven't had time for ....then it's back to work for the second half of the season starting Friday!!
