Re: 2020 STRIPER REPORTs
Last year we had alot of rain and that river was cold. I was not seriously fishing over the weekend. The last weekend of the striper season mooring at my marina.
Went from catskill up past styvesant creek / newton hook hitting the fish finder. I marked 2 schools. One was in the slow tide period. Bloodworms, eels, chunk on the bottom. Nothing. A few surface strike dragging a 6ft jerkbait and 2.5-3mph in the catskill bridge area.
Drifted a few bloodworms and a large shiner or two from athens to catskill on sunday. Lots of hits around the buoy marker rock piles, but no takers to the boat. Likely was large or small mouths.
I did ralize something over the weekend...... I need a bigger boat. I got the tiller arm creeky back.
