I need a striper fix real bad. Nothing in the midcoast that I know of, I'm thinking of heading down to southern Maine tomorrow (Thurs) or Saturday. Any suggestions, terry

I fished a local spot with Jon Berry last night. Not much happening. The southern Maine coast has been producing some nice fish though so far.

I've been away for the last ten days, but before I left I happened to down to a local (well known) spot below a damn near Brunswick/Topsham and managed to land four nice fat stipers from @25-27". didn't take the camera as I really didn't expect to catch anything, but was pleasantly surprised so had to take a cell phone pic as proof!

so there are a few around! I've heard a couple of good reports since I've been back, but haven't had a chance to get back out yet.....going to try in the morning though. If I do I'll let you know how it goes

Hey Terry,

last night the river finally came to life....we had fast action with boiling fish with many of our strikes coming in as little as 12" of water...The fishing got hot around dead low water and we fished until about 9:30 pm...we had to pick our way back through the shallows in the dark to get home but boy was it worth it.
We were mostly catching slot sized fish but we had a few fish that were well over 30" break us off....It's time to uncover your boat!!! Give me a call I'd like to fish with you sometime soon.
