Hoffey Family Gulf of Maine Shark Late August Fishing Adventure

Even though the Gulf of Maine Shark Fishing started slow this summer it is now in high gear! We had pretty much non-stop action with fly rods, spinning gear and stand up gear. We ended up the trip with doubles, on on fly and on standup. The stand up gear fight lasted over 20 minutes bring the biggest blue shark (over 10') of the trip boat side weighing between 250 and 275 pounds!

August Kennebec Striped Bass Fishing is Ending With a Bang

I can't remember a year with this many striped bass staged on the Ledges of the Kennebec River. The action is still on Carolina rigged bait due to high water temps.

Over the next few weeks the alewives will be dropping down river and the waters temps will drop. That will bring the stripers up off the ledges back to the surface for what I expect will be the best fly fishing and light tackle lure fishing of the 2015 season.

Kennebec River / Casco Bay Fishing Report August 17th, 2015

08-11-15stobart

Conditions: August conditions, High surface temps are causing the striped bass to hold deep. Offshore, the water temps are finally where they should be.

Bait the fish are feeding on: Atlantic herring, sand eel, river herring, eel, pollock

Species to fish for this week: Striped bass, Bluefish, tuna and shark

Fishing Tactics: Fish the shallows during low light and then fish deep structure where the water is cooler mid day.

My fly fishing tip of the week: August is tuff fly fishing but if you go early and work structure near moving water you can prevail... Sinking lines are a must.                                         

My spin fishing tip of the week: Use your fish finder to locate schools of striped bass in deep structure.

 

7 day outlook: IN shore: Hot and humid with afternoon thunderstorms. Stripers are now into a night feed so fish early and late. Off shore: Tuna are still a no show but it could happen any day now that the cold water has retracted to the east. Shark fishing is heating up and should be very good.
