What scared them? They’re usually pretty fearless.

This is an annual thing by the way. I mean. “Strippers vs Stripers”

It won’t be long now the Stripes will show up. My Water taxi captain saw Pogies and porpoise today in Casco bay.

Hahah checked back in had a great belly laugh.  I hope all of our Maine friends have a tremendous striper season. 

I learned a trick for the bait guys.  You need a bait needle, black rubber bands and a 9/0 circle.  Rubber band goes in the bait needle.  Send the needle through the top of the Mac or bunker eye socket.  Take the two ends on each side of the bait and loop them around the circle.  Twist the circle three times and then put the hook point under the rubber band where it initially goes through.  Make sure the hook point is facing forward.  This will allow the hook to ride above the bunker or mackeral head right between the eyes.

I went on a charter last year, and the guide was kind enough to show this exact technique. It worked awesome once I figured out to not set the hook on the circle.

Circle hooks blow unless you are trolling.  I'll take the ticket and use an octopus hook.  I have years of experience with both fishing live eels and when you gut hook stripers with circle hooks you are not getting the circle hook out.  Many will experience this specifically those fishing from shore.  But hey what can you expect from the ASMFC...these are the same guys that banned inshore dragging during the spawning period last year and now they want to reconsider. They reduced the rec harvest by 50% but look at the commercial harvest it didn't see a huge cut, fluke draggers still have to toss striper by catch and it isn't counted towards the commercial quota (ever see 30 miles of dead stripers, I have)...anyways I could go on but like I said many will learn how terrible it is to try to get one out....they work much better if you are towing a live bait from a boat and that rigging technique exposes more of the hook.
