Stripers are in Let the Kayak Fishing Season Begin!

May 17, 2017

Let the 2017 Hobie Kayak Fishing Season begin!  Along with this week's warm skies and calm seas this week keeper stripers showed in numbers this week north of Cape Cod, with many 28-inch-plus fish arriving on Boston's North Shore.   Stripers as large as 30 pounds were reported, along with a few fish in the 15- to 20-pound range. The majority of the fish are still very small shorts or small keepers, but the few larger fish being taken suggests a wave of post-spawn stripers may be moving in from the south.
