It must be Embarrassing to have to Teach your son that it is "Proper Etiquette" to pull your $20,000 boat up in front of a Shore Fisherman , while having 2 miles of river in each direction to fish. I mean , I wish I had pics , I was casting beyond them as they were approaching the shoreline directly in front of me .

What a Joke , I mean , you could Plainly see me from 200 yrds. away !!


So, to the question .. there are Tons of Herring in the river Albany area ,

and as long as there are / is food they will stay , I'll be fishing it for the next two weeks Easy

Thanks for the update. As for the inconsiderate boater...I feel your pain. Iíve had some people cruise past me while Iím on anchor that clearly had a common sense deficiency. In any event, good luck.

Were they setting up and fishing or jigging bait?

That stretch along those rocks seems to always produce herring when you can't get it in the main river. It's obviously a very long stretch and it's easy to avoid an area where people are fishing from shore. At the same time if that's the only spot to get herring (i'm thinking of off the Poesty when they first arrive) it seems like boat guys shouldn't be expected to avoid the only area with bait.


I don't have any issues with any of it and try to avoid all conflicts with other people - on shore or in a boat.

Same thing anywhere you are fishing from shore this time of year . . Fyshh Trap. . A well placed 4..5. . Or 6 oz. Sinker is great for keeping the boats away . .

Again I have been able to get out for just a few hours and have met Soo many people from just North of the Corning Preserve to just shy of the Dam .
Today was met with two back to back 28" fish and just when I thought it was gonna be a banner day it stopped . I switched to chunking from my usual jigging banter and caught 8 Cats , just one after another just below the 378 bridge .
There are Soo much Herring in the river now Albany area and Shad , "yep" caught some of them also , that the Bass are not going anywhere too soon .
It may be quick but I think we have another good week of larger fish still looming .
Rain and water temps have been fluctuating and a lot of bass are just "Hanging " with all of the Herring and baitfish in the area.
Because of this last semester of school I have only yet Begun to get out , But you know me , I'll be fishing for 'em till September and racking up my numbers !!
Let Us know how you are doing on Any Shore Fishing Reports ,
They are Still here !!

Such a Great Day today, not just fishing but because of the people I met on the River and this Is what it is all about, especially for me .
Loaded up my Bike and went to the Bruno Wall in hopes to meet some people I met last week and what happened was just so great .
I was watching the River and the Early incoming tide and was met by some people who were relatively new to the Spring fishing experience.
I had my ODM Rod and a Shimano Long Cast reel worth $1300 but just decided to watch the people trying to catch Herring and offering some advice on just how to do just that .
Now most people had sufficient rods but I asked a few to try my outfit after they saw a few casts , None would , but they Did listen to some of my strange wisdom of Why and how Stripers do their thing on the river , and Tide changes etc .. I also helped a young lad with a Herring rig which he had tied a Rock to the end in hopes to entice a Herring , I quickly removed the rock and tied a 1 oz. sinker to that rig and told him how to cast and retrieve it .

This was met by an immediate Herring , I also told him why the Herring rig was beneficial and what it represented to that Herring , he was soo thankful .

I guess what I am saying is that it isn't just the catching so much as the understanding and helping others who are just coming into this fantastic sport.
There was also a lot of questions of Catfishing and Walleye , but generally I hoped that I could clear some of those also .

My day ended with one small 24" male below the 378 bridge and just soo much gratification of helping a Great few people get some opinion on the "Hows and Whys" of what to do .

Please share all you can to all to help build a better fishery and better relations with all who enjoy this sport !!

PS.

I'll try to leave out the part where the guys in the $30,000 boat pulled right into the Poestenkill(Bruno Wall ) and basically moved 4 guys fishing for Herring right off the corner , yup they sure did , And there was a young girl in the boat learning that Fishing Ettiquette , like I said I wont get into That conversation.

Went 3 for 5 in Glasco Monday, flood tide. Lost one when my drag locked up...&$%@! Landed a 31" male, and a 30" male a bit later. Then a run & drop that mangled my bait. Finished the day by finally breaking the 40" mark...barely, a nice 40.5" cow! All on live.

Catfish


I fished this past weekend and couldn't keep the cats off my bait. At one point I doubled up on cats.


I had a couple live herring out the whole time and no stripers on that but the cats even hit that.


Tried again this morning with the same result but i'm sure there are a few fish around still.
