Kayak Fishing Great Bay For Striped Bass

Giant Striped bass lurk in waters that kayakers can easily access, and the battle that will ensue is life changing! Striped bass guide Tim Moore explains.

At 6,000+ acres, New Hampshire’s Great Bay is the second largest inland estuary on the east coast. It sits 10 miles inland of the Atlantic Ocean and is considered by many anglers—especially kayak anglers—as one of New Hampshire’s best striped bass fishing destinations. The current New Hampshire state record, a 51-inch, 60-pound striped bass, was caught in Great Bay in 1980. My Dad used to bring me there to go striper fishing in his boat when I was a kid. Now I make my living there guiding kayak fishing trips for striped bass in the spring and summer months, and Great Bay never fails to live up to its reputation.

In the spring, the outgoing tide is most often the preferred tide to fish for stripers in Great Bay. During high tide the sun warms the water in the shallows. When the tide turns and this warmer water rushes out it causes the rest of the water to warm. This spike in water temperature triggers striped bass to feed. As spring progresses into summer and the average water temperature rises, the incoming tide will become the preferred tide as well as early mornings and cloudy days when the water is cooler.

At low tide, note the location of exposed boulders and rock piles situated in heavy current, especially those adjacent to river mouths. At high tide these rocks will be slightly submerged and bigger stripers will use them as a place to wait for unsuspecting prey to swim past. Kayaks are great for getting in around the shallow rocks where boats can’t go for fear of hitting them. Cast a weighted paddle tail shad just beyond these rocks and retrieve it back for a chance at one of Great Bay’s infamous cow stripers, but be careful not to drift directly over the rocks or you will spook the fish. For an added advantage, pause and let the shad fall every few cranks. Keep your line tight and be ready to set the hook during the pause.

Dense flocks of terns diving into the water for bait almost always indicates a school of striped bass below. Be prepared to do a lot of paddling because some days the bait may not stay in one place. Try to stay ahead of the school, but by all means don’t paddle directly into the middle of it or you will spook the fish. Stay on the edges of the school and cast into it.

It’s the ease of access, calm water, and almost constant striped bass presence that makes Great Bay a favorite among striped bass kayak anglers. There are several launch locations, many of them are maintained by the NH Fish & Game Department. Check FishNH.com for a list of public launch sites. I have a lifetime of fond memories from striper fishing in Great Bay, but it’s not the memories that keep me coming back; it’s the opportunity of being towed around by a large striper or the days when we count fish numbers close to three digits.
