Hi all. Im new here. Cant wait to use this forum. I was surfcasting yesterday on the jetti at the mouth of the saco river during rising tide and the red seaweed was the worst i have ever seen. Anyone know if stripers will hit in those conditions?

Welcome Kaniff. Sorry not familiar with red seaweed, but I wouldn't think it would affect the fishing as long as you can keep your bait out of it.

I was in Scarborough on Wednesday, cruising up and down rt. 9 (Pine Point Rd.) and saw some likely spots for stripers at the mouth of the estuaries and in the estuaries. Talked to two fishermen and they said there aren't many keepers to be gotten- most ar large schoolies about 22-24". But if you want action without red seaweed, try this area. I'm new to the area myself. You got me curious about red seaweed. I'm going to research this seaweed to know how it gets washed ashore so I can go at times when it's not likely to get unattached from the seabed. Jim
