Moved north in afternoon with same winds but slightly more NW. 2 men Zero fish today. Big change in a day. Water still at 53-54 degrees and WATCH OUT FOR FLOATING LUMBER!!!!!! It's everywhere
Some day i will figure out what turns them on to feeding...it seems the last 2 years they turn on at the bottom third of outgoing tide. I discovered a current app on my Humminbird and noticed the ebb and flood currents do not quite coincide with the actual incoming/outgoing tides so I'm gonna try to to see if I can see any patterns.

Your right doc, I like using mobilegraphics tide chart. It graphs the tide height so you can see how steep of a tide it will be. You can tell what phase of moon your in by looking at the tides after a while. I watch not just for tide times but type of tides. Steeper tides we've had lately with tall highs. The tide time only dictates level. If it says 9am low, that will be the low point for water level but tide will still go out as water start to rise. This usually can last 30 min to almost 2 hours some tides depending on wind direction. Log these specifics on tides and you will notice not just what tides do best for you but even what types of tides. These highs we've had make for great back Bay shallow opportunities and night fishing flats. You'll notice yourself dialing in and able to predict better when prime times may be

I've been keeping a log book onboard since 2009 and compare trips and dates all the time during slow fishing. I've studied it over and over and still can't figure these things out!!! Some days air/water temps are the same as previous week with completely different fishing results. I'm happy to listen to any theories or ideas relating to how to make em take a bait.

Added 4 this morning on outgoing tide in ulster this morning. The biggest was a big 42 3/4" 38 lb cow. There were some other beasts caught today from what I heard. Bait shows no sign of getting difficult.

Being a clunker, I notice that I do the best when the tide, whether it is incoming or outgoing, is just starting to slack off, not no current, but slower than mid current

We hit Newburgh today from about 1:30-8:30. Managed 3 fish, largest 25" but they bite was not good.........marked schools that would not eat. I finally figured it out on the way home when the temp dropped 20 degrees........a cold front moving in definitely shuts down the bite.

Joe,
I am an old troller myself. Would like to give trolling in Newburgh a shot. Can you advise on your best practices like where, depth, lure and the all important speed and anything else?
Any other trollers - feel free to chime in
Thank you very much
Tp the BAHAMAN

I am new to trolling newburgh this year. Best luck so far has been using leadcore 3-4 colors with stickbaits like size 14 rapalas. I've gotten fish from 1.9-2.4mph

Trolling Newburg is tough on weekends because of the 9 million boats drifting.

Took my grandfather out this morning. He's caught a few small stripers in the ocean years ago but has always gotten skunked on the river (not that he's put much time in)
We ended up putting 8 in the boat, 50/50 live and chunk. His being the biggest at 39". Every fish was bigger than anything that he's caught in his lifetime.

Such an awesome day with a great guy!

Thank you. I have just as much fun watching other people in my boat catching them. Especially if it's their first or PB. He had a smile on his face all day. He was even happier to tell his wife that she no longer caught the biggest fish. She's been holding that over his head for as long as I can remember lol

Tough luck man. I'm surprised. I figured it'd be loaded up there ..but then again, that's not my area of expertise. You'll get em next time

Caught 5 fish on the outgoing tide today and only 1 on the incoming. All the fish were slot fish up to 39". Bait continues to be a breeze in the ulster county area.
