2018 STRIPER TOURNY UPDATE

WELLS HARBOR STRIPER TOURNY 2018 RULES

Striper fishing the river mouths has slowed a bit over the last week.  I have heard of more consistant action in the surf.  The keeper stripers continue to take chunk macks, live macks or live eels as the bait of choice. I talked to 2 boys fishing from the Chicks Marina dock in Kennebunk river on Wednesday and they caught a striper over 40" on a live eel.  Night fishing yielded this beauty that Mike Baker caught on a live eel, over 44 inches and released moments later.

Mackerel have remained spotty, some luck about 5 miles out, and some are finding them at 60 feet deep in areas outside of kennebunk, but just about everyone is saying you have to work harder to find the bait than the Stripers.  Dan Durgin found some squid last week and said they had a blast with them, then enjoyed fresh calamari :)

Pogies and sand eels are in abundance and make it a bit more challenging to catch stripers, they have so much to eat and its readily available to them.  Sand eel replicas like hogy's and slugos are working well in the harbor on Schoolies.  Dany's and shallow divers like diawa salt pro minnow and yozuri crystal minnows cast well in the surf and have landed a few fish this week. 

Offshore reports are quieter in close like Tantas and Peaks, but remain solid at Jeffreys.  Pick your color on the cod fly, they all seem to be taking haddock at present.  Polluck, redfish and whiting all caught too. 

Happy 4th, its going to be a hot steamy week, perfect for some night surf fishing!

Get out there and FISH!!
