Miramichi River – N 46° 57.140’ W 65° 45.578’
Today’s Hotspot is a stretch of the Miramichi River named Red Bank. The waypoint on your screen will get you there.
During the Striped Bass spawning each spring, this area gets completely jammed up with rambunctious fish preparing to reproduce. We feel these fish are striking out of aggression as well as hunger which is somewhat odd during the spawning season. A fast erratic moving bait like a Yamamoto D Shad soft Jerkbait in a bright colour will pretty much clean up here. The fish simply can’t handle it!
Our best fishing came on the shallow flats, with only limited success on the main river channel.
This is a phenomenal fishery that everyone should try.
