Hey all,

I've been seeing a rather intriguing amount of posts on this platform as well as other regarding stripers that have already been caught in Maine. Seeing these have me confused yet optimistic. Im wondering if anyone can confirm the early arrival of stripers in Maine with any solid evidence ?

Migrating fish are on the north shore of boston

 

Good dose of bait there right now 

 

Schoolies to 30” 

 

god willing, and some persistent SW breezes (not in the 10 day weather pattern). And they will move in here 

 

 holdover fish are around if you know where to look for them 

 

get out there, anything’s possible 

 

shad should show soon too 

 

my guess is we are In a struggling pattern of weather, but sun angle and hours of daylight always wins

 

in my area, north of Portland 

 

anything before May 21 is a bonus 

 

it’s close 

 

hang in there 

 

Jim

Fished my early season spot last night- nada- but I was late on the tide also.  Heard tell of a fish hooked upriver and also of fish caught farther south....  Gorgeous, if blowy, night.  Loving the new Skagit head on the 7 wt spey....

Just wondering how far that 7wt casts straight up in the air?

I dunno, but I'd like to nail some of those Canada geese. :shaky:
