Default Bay of Fundy bass

https://photos.app.goo.gl/i3iTyoMxMHEoGUfD8

My brother and I were down to Bass River to get something from his cottage. While there I checked on the bass fisherman. There was an outgoing tide and a stiff east wind pushing it. I could see a chop at the point where the currents collided. It was a cool spot. I talked to a guy fishing there and he said some guy down the beach had one about 37 inches.

I went back to the cottage and the guy and the fish were by his car. I talked to him for a bit and later his buddy showed up with one in the mid 30 range.

I hadn't seen bass like that since leaving the States. They are beautiful fish.-

Thanks for that, Walter. I will be using your post in my annual report on stripers. Any more stuff you pick up would be welcome as I need the copy.

really looks like a sweet spot. there is a spot that looks similar on the outgoing at Brigantine, with likely just a "few" degrees difference in water temperature at any given time of the year

The bigger difference is likely you can't see an inch into this water.

There is something going on in Canadian striper fishing. We had the Miramachi striper explosion, now this. Could it be Global warming that has stripers further north than usual? Or maybe the bass were in the Maritimes all along and media access is allowing more open talk where word gets around? Never forget that social considerations play into our perceptions of things.

They have always been here.

The only thing going on is likely eco condition changes from Global warming.

When I was a kid dad talked about bass fishing in the spot above. i didn't fish there because back then there were so few bass there it was not worth it.

I have to look at the map to see where the Bay of Fundy is. I know on a Navy Reserve cruise we went by the Bay of Fundy because it was announced on the ship's PA while I was on watch.
