The Season

  Starting in late May, the coast of Maine is invaded by a “thousand mile long convoy” of ravenous Striped Bass that pour into the numerous coastal rivers and bays to feed on the vast schools of bait fish. June offers nearly non-stop action with “schoolie” Stripers in the 18-30 inch range. By July, Bluefish join the fray with amazing surface “blitzes” that churn the waters. Huge Striped Bass cruise the flats & lie in deep rips attacking any bait that passes by. August often sees the arrival of “football” Bluefin Tuna, in the 50 to 200 pound range that crash into frantic bait balls on the surface of near shore waters with action that lasts through the Fall. September – October offers unbelievable action on Striper, Bluefish, and “Football” Tuna as acres and acres of fish gorge themselves on Peanut Bunker, Herring, Sandeels and Atlantic Mackerel; to fatten-up as the first cold fronts of autumn send these game fish off on their southerly migration.
