Location: Miramichi River, New Brunswick
GPS: N 46° 57.140, W 65° 45.578
Species: Striped Bass

This Hotspot is located on a stretch of the Miramichi River named Red Bank. During the Striped Bass spawning migration each spring, this area gets completely jammed up with rambunctious fish getting ready 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.
