Green Harbor Striper Fishing Report | Marshfield MA

by admin on June 13, 2011

Striper fishing in June is always a lot of fun. There are plenty of large fish around now. On some days out in front of Green Harbor the water is thick with tinker mackerel and in just a few minutes you can land enough bait for the entire day. This is exactly how this trip begins. With only 1 hour before the high tide we leave the dock in search of bait. First stop at Farnham rock produces a few Pollack and the sporadic mackerel so we move north about a mile and drop our Sabiki rigs under some birds working the water. For the next ten minutes we pull tinker mackerel over the rails non-stop. We took what we needed for the days fishing trip and headed north to set up for the high tide.

Striper Fishing June 2011

Within a few minutes after setting up on the secret spot we have our first fish and before we decide to call it quits we landed at least 9 nice fish. The most active bite was 1/2 hour before and after the high tide. After that the activity was sporadic but consistent.

I’ve been using a Penn 975 baitcaster on a light uglystick for most of my live line bass fishing this season (this is my favorite light rod reel combination) instead of the heavier Shimano 6500 Baitrunners I usually use. Both reels are spun up with 40lb Powerpro and for this type of fishing I generally use a 4ft 30lb fluorocarbon leader to a circle hook.
