Stripers are here!
<p>Just a quick post to say that the stripers have arrived in the Saint George River in numbers. It has been a long wait for them to get here but they are a fish worth waiting for. For the last couple of days there have been acres of bait. Including an early bunch of what I call rain bait (it looks like it is raining where they are in the river because of all of the dimples on the surface) I think in reality that they are a bay anchovy. Sometimes I wish I had paid closer attention in those fish ID classes in college. There are numbers of blueback herring and of course there are still alewives galore dropping back down out of the river, a veritable striper smorgasbord! The water temperatures are pretty consistently in the upper 50's and low 60's so we should have fish to catch from now until October! I have a few open dates next week if you would like to go please drop me an e-mail or give me a call.
