I use a 5g sinker, about 2 to 3 feet of line and Gaspreau or smelt on the hook, just let it hover in the current and always do well. Thats in a boat below the Pulp Mill.

Went to nova scotia fishing didn't catch mmuch but 1 schoolie... But some guy said the caught a 41 lbs striper but dunno if its in one of those haring net or on a line so I think they could be in anytime... Seen some big fish jump today in front of us and a big seal few hours before that... It was a show hje jumped a couple time out of the wAter but dunno if he was chasing something...

Does anyone know if there catching any or if anyone is fishing the falls yet? I'm coming to st john for the weekend and I would like to take another crack at fishing in your area, I usually fish them in N.S and close too the N.s boarder around Sackville area. its still early in the season for where I live, but I'll be in st john for the weekend and haven't heard of any being caught yet. there getting them down N.S where I usually fish them, but like I said its still too early in the season for around my local area and can't wait to hook the first one of the year.

Hi all:

Was out in the boat this past Monday, trolled all day, bucktails, bombers etc. waiting for tide to change, fished the incoming tide with mackerel, squid and got one huge eel. Lots and lotsof bait on fish finder along with cormorants eating them up. Is anyone catching stripers anywheres.

Ipop, catch anything at the falls yet

i haven`t heard of any landed at the falls yet. mostly due to it`s trout season and everybody is busy chasing them. i`m going to give it a try at least one night this week, assuming it`s not to wet.
