South Shore Mass. to Maine


Posted By Greg Metcalf, June 19, 2017
Waves of striped bass form schoolies to solid keepers are being landed from the South Shore of MA on up to Maine right now.
The sea conditions this past week has made the offshore fishing and even inshore boat fishing very difficult, but those who ventured out did quite well. Striped bass continue to move through the area in waves with schools of fish consisting of small schoolies on up to legit cows being right on up to Maine. Striper fishing from the New Hampshire border to Saco Bay, ME has been on fire for striped bass with some reporting the best action that they’ve seen in years in this area. Although most of the fish are schoolie-size, there have been many keepers in the mid-30-inch range. Tuna fishing hasn’t really kicked in just yet, but there is plenty of bait around and anglers are making some scouting runs; when it finally gets going things should break wide open! Flounder fishing continues to provide excellent results with lots of fish being reported and a sprinkling of large fish into the 201-inch class being caught. The usual spots are producing fish so the best advice is to just get out there and fish!
