    New England Striper Conditions?

    Schoolies are buzzing, canal is producing a small keeper here and there.

    Caught around 50 fish yesterday am and this morning. Small schoolies and micros. Largest was just a sniff under 28”.

    28 is a rec keeper (1 fish). 33 commercial (2 from shore).

    Mostly hitting local estuaries etc with smaller al gag jigs and softbaits. Canal the usual top water swimmers and smaller profile jigs

    You ever drift eels in the canal? I bet there’s some slobs to be had in there

    New England Striper Conditions?

    Stripers still running on the MA North Shore. Haven’t seen any blues yet. Caught some small ones with swim shads, sand eel jigs and smaller bombers. I haven’t caught anything big yet, finally got the boat in so maybe that will change. It’s been fun to chase them from the shores. Pics won’t load right now so I’ll try again later

    Picking up schoolies around Westport island from the canoe. I ll bring the phone today. Small stripers on my 8 wt is super fun. Mostly slow trolls over structure on strong tides. Maine rocks.

    Never caught a striper on a fly. That must be fun. Rebel lures, bunker, calico crabs and sand worms were always my go to.

    I don't fly fish in salt, but boy is it a lot of fun to hook on to a good size striper in a canoe.

    Back from Maine. No more action for me. We were staying on the Hubbard Point preserve on Westport Island. 2 older, small, dog friendly houses sit on this point, very private and separated by 50 wooded acres. The cove is great water. Lots of current, lots of bait, and I saw fish almost every day. The water was super glassy and I ran out of light mono on the second day so i was casting 15# for the last half of the week. I saw a couple little blitzes but my casting would put the fish down. Super fun way to spend a few hours a day. We booked on HomeAway. I'd recommend the property for people trying to check out, it is very private and an amazing place for my ADHD kid and my Dad's 2 ADHD Chessies. There's also an Organic Farm that makes really nice seasonal saisons about a mile away at TarBox Farm. I could live in Maine....

    No fish pics as my son was draining my phone battery like an electron vampire. Here's the house, Hubbard cove, and a peek out past Hubbard point towards Knubble Bay and Hells Gate.

    New England Striper Conditions?

    Did a 5:00 am run to Billingsgate shoal off Dennis on a buddies little center console yesterday and fished hard all morning.

    Just had this guy and a decent size blue to show for it. Caught on a Deadly Dick w a tube. We also tried frozen mackerel, worm and tube and some deep diving plug. Lots of birds tho and we saw at least three keepers on other boats.

    Was a reely fun morning.

    New England Striper Conditions?

    Caught my first schoolie stripers of the year yesterday, there are a lot of them around Boston harbor right now. This might have been the biggest of the 4, they were tiny. Caught all of them on small, silver Storm Shads with neon yellow accent. Was surprised to not get any bites on 5’’ soft sand eel jig (red head with a white body), I’ll try different colors of those today, they usually love ‘em.

    Big ol bumpity.
    Just booked airfare to hang with Pops 6/17-6/26, will be based in Bourne for the most part probably starting 6/17 or 18, need to spend some time seeing some old friends and exploring the metro west breweries before heading down cape for the week. I'll have my gf with me and she's not really a fisher, so early am's are best, could easily sneak away for a half day though. Anyone wanna give a mag a boat ride and hammer on em? Should be primo schoolie time. Bringing the 8 wt (all I have) and a selection of flies. Have a ghetto stripping basket stashed with dad.

    Fly recs, beta, etc appreciated. Go-to's in the past have been launching a little (read, stillwater) kayak at Monument or Barlows, or on foot around the Lobster trap flats/perry marsh.

    Nice! Wish I could join you but I’m gonna be ballz deep in a renovation project in Maine by then. Your post got me psyched for living by the tides after a winter in the hills.

    I will start poking around on the Northshore flats a week from tomorrow. I plan to be around through June so If as anyone wants to take a look I will show ya around. All wading unless you bring a paddle board.

    This is what we will usually find with larger fish sometimes mixed in.
