If any of you ever plan to fish in Maine let me know as I'd be pleased to point you in the right direction.
The in-shore striper fishing with fly tackle was awesome until about 2005 then it mysteriously collapsed with very few fish migrating much above Boston area.... I have heard the stripers are once again roaming the Maine Coast and swimming up the rivers... They are a serious good time on fly tackle and there are many awesome coastal guides who will put you on fish busting top water. So if you are "stuck" visiting the coast and have no time to travel inland to great trout water give the salt a try.
