FISH EAST | Jeff Rathburn | Kennebecasis Monster Fall Striper

FISH EAST Contributor Jeff Rathburn battles a Kennebecasis beast Striper late in the season! Don’t ever put away your boat too early…Some of the best action can be had when the water temps drop but the action heats up. Kudos to Jeff for landing this fish of a lifetime!

Like most die hard anglers, Jeff started fishing as a young child. Chasing brook trout, chain pickerel, smallmouth bass and panfish around the family cottage was a typical summer. Eventually moving out west he also discovered walleye and northern pike and channel cats. Moving back to New Brunswick in 2002 he started fishing local bass tournaments, taking the NBPro Bass Tour 2013 Champions and Team of the Year titles. In the last couple years he has taken a step back from tournaments to concentrate on getting back to multi specie angling. If it has fins he now wants to catch it. Be it trout on a fly rod, shad on an ultra-light or flippin a jig for largies he'll be there.
