Saco – Maine
As the series comes close to its end, the crew of Fishing Road Trip USA find themselves in the final State of Maine, where Paul is live bait fishing for massive Striped Bass. The City of Saco just south of Portland is experiencing flat calm conditions, so skipper John is confident of success. After trolling for live mackerel to use as bait, John pulls the boat up against the rock structures. By drifting baits alongside the rocks with tennis ball bobbers, Paul can imitate an injured prey fish along the patrol route the Bass use to hunt. The technique certainly works, as Paul soon finds himself connected to a striper far bigger than any he’s caught on the trip so far.
