Maine Striper Fishing Reports August 8th, 2013

WOW!!!The Fuse has been lit folks and the Kennebec is on fire right long it will continue is anyone's guess but with the water temps where they are and the amount of bait that we have, i'd say that it's a safe bet that we'll have great fishing right through the middle of October...Big fish, slot fish, and small schoolies are roaming all through the lower Kennebec. We have been having great success lately using a variety of tackle, artificial lures, flies and of course live & chunk mackerel have been deadly. Early mornings have been best for fly fishing so if that is the game that you want to play, be prepared to leave the dock early for the best success...Once the sun gets high, bouncing jigs or drifting bait through the rips has been deadly...even in bright sun. I've also had some success fishing chunk baits in shallow water for some big Stripers, even in the middle of the afternoon!!!
I cant say one way or the other which tide is working better as both tides have some great opportunities for flats and deeper water structure...I am having one of my busiest seasons in recent years and all this time on the water translates into big dividends for my charter guests...One thing that is noticeably absent so far this season are bluefish...Yes I have had some bluefish aboard but it has been really random...We haven't seen those huge schools of slashing bluefish. The lack of bluefish might be why the Striper fishing has been so good lately...when the blues show up the bait disappears...IN A HURRY!!! It would not hurt my feelings if the blues stayed away but that is just wishful thinking...Any day now they'll be here!!
