Thumbs up FINALLY! I Caught My First One!!!

I finally caught my first striper. After a year of trying in the surf and countless days this season on the shore in the Albany/Troy area, I finally landed one in the Hudson on chunked fresh herring. It was only an 18" schoolie but I was the finest fish in the world to me. I also lost one that I'd estimate was about 24" two cast before the one I landed.

THANKS to everybody in the forum who gave me all the advice on everything from how to catch herring to what rigs to use for stripers in the river.

I know the seasons about done for upriver stripers (according to the talk and reports). Where is a good surf spot in RI or Mass that is closest to Albany? When does the surf action heat up? I am sooo addicted now!!

Default I need to Catch My First One!!!

I would like to catch my first one. I have been fishing the Long Island sound for some time. Caught other fish but I am having trouble with stripers. Used some worms for the past few days, fished the rocks on the Norwalk CT islands from a boat. No luck at all. Need some advice. Time of day, low or high tide, bait ???? HELP!!!!!
