Maine Striper Fishing / Capt Eric Wallace

Fin Bait and Worm hatch Fun fun !!!!!!

Maine Striper fishing report (June 15)

From the Piscataqua River on the New Hampshire border north to the Kennebec the word on the water for weeks has been bait, It's just crazy how much food we have this year, and finally we can talk about good size fish in numbers, showing up to feed. All of Maine has some kind of bait from Silversides to sand eels and Herring to Adult Pogies, But it's a different story on where the Bass are showing, Portland South is seeing catches of 40 fish or so on six hour trip mixed in are fish in the mid 30's reported by local shops. I've guided the last eight days on the lower western parts of Casco Bay and today was by far the best morning I've had we boated some fish near 30 and found a small worm swarm or hatch on the flats first thing and just had a blast, The Tides are setting up for some good fishing this week where we have great tides to the fish over worms in ultra skinny water and I'm glad we have the fish to key in on them unlike areas north where the word is ton of Macs on small juvie herring as reported by Sweet Action Charters of Boothbay I've heard reports of some action even farther north while the Kennebec is off to a slow start once again, but that should change very soon.
