Default Troy/Albany

I am a beginner to the Strippers in the Mighty Hudson river. Anybody know if they have arrived this far North yet? If not when can we expect them? And what is best to use for bait, live/frozen macks or those big meaty worms that bite say from Cape Cod?

Thanks for any help you may have.

:D

Hi Pop
Welcome
Have a look at this thread. Keep in mind that we are a few weeks behind this year due to the weather patterns. http://stripers247.com/phpBB2/viewto...865&highlight=

I expect the Hudson guys to give you a few good tips here soon as well. Enjoy the site.

Default Thanks guys....

I actuall live on the river, well not on it, but next to it. I can fish from shore and have no choice because I am boatless. Mrbuster, if you come up, look for the Captain JP II just South of the Troy damn. (Trust me, you can't miss it) I also plan on visiting the local tackle shop just up the road. IF and when I can get any info from those guys I will too pass it along.

Happy Casting.
Happier Catching!

I like that. That's catchy! (no pun intended) I think I will add that to my signature.

Default Stripers are here!!

PapaC The stripers are definitely here in Albany/Troy and biting VERY well for this time of year. The other day we pulled out 13 the biggest being 26.5 pounds and 37 inches. Most of the fish are being caught on jigs and large deep diving crank baits. It looks like its going to be a great year.

How about fishing from the shore.
Still ok to use jigs and diving cranks?
My concern is the shoreline, is it rocky where I will get snagged or is it muddy?

I am headed out tomorrow for some lures.

Thanks again...

I replied to your other message on the Troy/Albany thread under fish reports. Shore fishing is great. Honestly a decent day from shore is better than a good day in a boat up here. Although if you are in a boat with someone who knows what they are doing, you are pretty much gurranteed fish. From shore it can be hit or miss but when they are there you NAIL 'em!
