The Striped Bass Are Back In Maine
Foggy Day = Fishy Day

Strong fishing continues in Boston Harbor, as we're finding consistent surface feeds at all times of the day. When the bass have been on smaller bait (silversides) they seem to alternate between getting a little fussy and focused on smaller offerings and going bananas for for much larger imitations that we throw their way. Smaller bait has generally meant smaller stripers. When the bass are pushing herring to the surface, our average size goes up significantly.

We've focused most of our attention on the entrance to the Inner Harbor, the flats off Logan, Dorchester Bay and Quincy Bay. I expect that any time now we'll see fish setting up consistently in President's Rhodes and all around the outer islands. We haven't spent time fishing the flats and channels around Hingham and Hull and can't report on activity on that side of the Harbor.

Reports from Maine continue to be positive. Friends at home are finding surface feeding schoolies in the Kennebec. Hope you make time to fish.
