NH stripers August

Capt. Joel Koch
August 14, 2011
Portsmouth - Saltwater Fishing Report

Week ending 8/14/11
Except for Monday which sucked, fishing was successful this week. Monday, we just couldn't seem to get the stripers to eat. They were there we could tell but the bite was off, way off. Not sure but mid way through the trip we had a major thunder/lightening storm come through. I am sure the barometric pressure change turned the fish off. By Tuesday fishing was back to normal and on every other trip for the week we caught at least one large Striped Bass (over the 28" NH limit) with the best day on Wed. with 4 keepers and a bunch of near keepers. Live bait has been spotty since the beginning of August so instead of spending time looking for mackerel we have been doing all of our trips with cut bait (chunking) or as I like to call it "the buffet table". Towards the end of the week we were not only treated to good fishing but with a great air show. At times, we just sat back and watched the show, with the pilot's impressive maneuvers and shear power of Jets. Great times on the water with added benefits of a fantastic view of the air show.
Stripers are still around doing miss out on a fishing trip this year.
Tight Lines, Capt. Joel
