Kennebec River Striper Report July 1st, 2013

As is usually the case in july & august, I had two trips today...the first started at 6 am with regular clients Jan Leth & Dennis Hansen...these guys are usually up for anything so we opted to take advantage of the bait restriction being lifted and ran outside through the fog to load the livewell with took us a few minutes but we soon had a steady stream of bait coming over the rail...once we had our bait supply secured I swung the boat to the west and ran across a stiff chop to the mouth of the first stop was a shallow flat that usually fishes well on an incoming tide...problem was the tide was going out so we didn't waste much time scouting and we left after 10-15 minutes...we would revisit this flat later in the day with much different results ;-)...the next spot was had the mother load waiting for us...several drifts in a row yielded torqued over rods and screaming drags as hefty 30+ inch class fish slammed our livebaits...this action would continue at each of the next several stops until the tide went slack and we headed back to the dock...The second trip had the Harris family from Georgia aboard. I hustled them downriver to a promising spot and on our very first drift we had a nice double header hookup...the first of many nice fish that the Harris family would boat over the next few hours several of which came from water 2' or less!!! THE FISHING IS GOOD RIGHT NOW!!!
