My friends caught ten small ones up in Albany, near 90 bridge this afternoon using sand worms from shore. Said they were hitting almost every cast. Thought only herring worked this far north.

There are exceptions to every rule but are you sure they were not white perch ?? Every time I tried bloods up north that is all I caught.

After some boat repairs (which did not work) we still went out on one motor and ended up with 24 today. Last year's spawn must have been incredible (it was) because I have never caught so many striper under 10 inches as today...in fact....only one was 27 inches....rest were dinks and bait stealers. We fished 1pm to 10pm. Water temp started at 56 in Newburgh and went up to 58.5 then back down. As we were motoring in we marked a HUGE/Thick school along the east side at Denning's Point....at least 30-40 inch fish based on the marks so we stopped and tried for an hour to get them to feed but they absolutely wanted nothing to do with it. My guess is they were schooling up to spawn off Dennings as an hour before the same area was a ghost town. Back out tomorrow.

I know they were stripers from the pics, sounded like they hit a huge school of dinks-hits almost every cast.

This is definitely the year of the dinks which is a good sign to come as they will grow. Dinks cannot fit herring in their mouths so they will nail worms...it is just unusual for the dinks to come up this far in such huge numbers.

Started yesterday in coxsackie. Bait was easy, common to get 2 or 4 in the scap net. Had one run and drop early. Fished 9-1p.
Went up to between Albany and Troy from 2-330 and caught a 23 and a 16 both on chunk. Herring were nonexistent. I am grateful for the gentleman that gave me one Fresh he had to cut up and fish with.
All from shore.

Dinks and shorts all over the shores yesterday. Haven't seen any milking. Also today saw a few boats braving the elements today off cornwall/Newburgh. Seemed like it only took 20 minutes to drift from Newburgh to Cornwall yacht club

5/15/16 Fished Newburgh and Marlboro today. The wind was howling and the waves were rough till about 8pm then dead calm till midnight. We fished by the Power Plant in Marlboro which was calm from the NW wind and picked up one fish but we were marking several. Then headed to Newburgh Bay after the wind died and picked up 5 more. All were small. We marked the huge school again in the same place as yesterday....east side just north of Dennings but there was minimal bite. We did lose a monster that was at least 40 lbs..............fought him until the dam hook broke.......now that is added to my collection. Ended the night in Marlboro at the Rock Plant. Fish were spotty but what we marked were huge fish. This warm weather will turn them on this week and it will be on fire. One day of work tomorrow then back out. Water temps dropped to 55 degrees and there was no spawning activity.

This one was a Gamagatsu. I have also had Owners and Mustad's break...got a pile of em. Usually the 6-0 Mustads just straighten out after one use so I call them ONE USE HOOKS. The only brand I have never had break are the Trokar hooks made by Eagle Claw.

I tested my Gammy's from 10 years ago and they bend in a vice whereas the new ones snap. I'm pretty sure mass production has them cooling them off too fast and making them bridle. Pretty much any fish over 40 lbs will break a Gamagatsu.

Doc, I'm gonna politely disagree with your last line. I'm not saying certain hooks aren't week or faulty, but the ANGLER...not the fish...pulling hard and with heavy line breaks the hook (or the line...in the case of lower lb/tests). I've bent out and broken hooks with heavy line and landed the same size fish with the same hooks on lighter line.
The quote from Surfcaster/author Frank Daignault: "The fish never breaks the line...you do!"
Bad knots...bad hooks...frayed line...drag too tight with light line...

I was out in NB from 4-8. It was hard to find big schools. Hitting a lot of shorts, the largest was 23". None of them decorated my boat like they did a week ago. I suspect they have already spawned.

Really disappointed in this morning from 6 to 1pm. Herring were a little difficult which was surprising given the abundant sunshine and reasonably warm water temp. Went home until 6 and back out for a nice late afternoon/evening. Herring still not as easy as expected for this time of the run. Managed 1 herring and no takers in live. My lone evening herring (6th of the day) didn't make it long so it became chunked bait. That produced a 27". Impressive fighter. From the guys I've talked to it's been slow around Rensselaer/Albany.

You are correct in some cases but my hook test in the vice does not lie and there is no way 6 lbs of drag should break a hook nor should a hook break before 25 lb test line. I have 60 broken hooks and not one Trokar ever broke.
