Welcome to the 2015 Season! The action has picked up nicely over the past week or so with stripers chasing bait from the Merrimack River mouth all the way upstream to the Great Stone Dam in Lawrence.
The oceanside water is still very cold and most of the arriving stripers are seeking the backwater estuaries of the Essex, Castle Neck Rivers at Cape Ann and Ipswich, Parker Rivers further up the north coast. The beachfront action should start to improve over the next week or so.
