Maine Striped Bass Report July 13th, 2013

The fishing continues to be good in the Kennebec region...Today I had Michael & Debbie from Michigan aboard for a morning of Striper fishing...departing the Kennebec Tavern we cruised down the river several miles and got setup to drift a fast moving tide rip...a few drifts through and both anglers hooked up with thier first fish of the day...the next spot is becoming well known for a rogue seal that likes to steal bait and stripers right off the end of your line...this brazen fellow showed himself immediately as our first couple of drifts cam up with baitless hooks and at one point this seal was right at the rail of the boat looking for a handout...
At this point, with the sun is getting high and rogue seals on the hunt, I make the call to run for cooler water outside the river where big packs of stripers have been roaming the shallow surflines...We spent the remainder of the trip out on the surfline basically having to spoon feed the stripers...with bluebird conditions the stripers needed some coaxing but we got it done and both Debbie and mike landed some quality fish...

Seal Steals: Part of the evolutionary food chain and dynamics of striped bass fishing. How many pictures of my sons do you have with black and blue bruised or half mauled stripers? Loads...
