We fished Marlboro and north most of today and ended up with 22 up to 39" 24 lbs. The morning bite at the top half of flood tide was good above the rock plant. Newburgh was also hit with some thick schools for the am flood tide. The afternoon ebb tide came with wind that shut the bite down and the fish scattered into to channel. The am river was like glass. Water temp went up to 58 degrees. The evening bite was slow on flood with a few dinks. Docked for a few hours now and out bright and early for the am bite which seems to be best right now.

Fished 3:30 - 9 AM. Around 8:15 had a good one on that snapped the leader. About 20 minutes later same pole starts running and I land this 33.5" on a live herring. Safely released. First striper of the season!

Fished Albany all day yesterday. More herring than you can imagine screen FULL all day. Had live herring out on 4 rods all day long and not even a run. I saw one fish caught between 50 boats all day. Super disappointing but still better than being at work!

Keep some chunk out there too. There's days where they won't even look at live but slam chunk.

Fished out of Albany area Tuesday late afternoon from boat. Nothing on live or chunk Herring. Did manage to get a small one on a bucktail jig that I was just tossing out out of boredom. Took Wednesday off to fish the same area and nothing. I didn't see anyone else catch anything, although I have seen some pictures of people catching them in the same areas I was fishing. I'm just not having any luck this year. I'll be out again early Saturday morning. I may switch up my technique and try drifting some blood worms, or try fishing a little more north up at the dam.

Hello gentleman. New to the site. Can someone enlighten me on how they fish their chunk bait. I mainly fish live but also put a line out with chunk on it but only manage to get catfish on them. Do you guys suspend the chunk? Use float rigs? I've heard of guys using marshmallows to get them to float???? Any input would be great.

Trap, did all of those with chunk. Also, tried every conceivable way to rig a live herring and at every depth from low to high. Even tried a sliver of chunk herring on the hook with a live just in case it was a scent thing. So far I'm skunked for the season in the Albany Rensselaer Troy area

We got out early and hit Marlboro to find no fish..not even at the Rock Plant. Drifted north and found them just south of the Poughkeepsie Bridge.....lots of steady flowing fish but no schools. The were not in the typical strike zone and when our deeper poles were hitting we figured out that they seemed to be feeding at 28-35 feet in 60-70 FOW...any shallower and no fish. This is a bit unusual but the incoming cold front will turn on feeding. The wind kicked up severely for a few hours and knocked us around but we continued to catch em. We had to run 50 feet of line out due to the angle to hit the 30 foot strike zone. The northern drift with Flood tide was good in the morning. The wind was so bad that there was NO south drift with the Ebb tide....we literally stayed in one place for the whole tide....we were still catching but when the wind pushed us E or W the fish were gone and we had to reset on them. We picked up some nice cows and at one point all 6 of our rods went and we managed to land 5. Most fish were between 20 and 34". Our big one came on an eel 40 feet down. We ended up with 36 for the day. Water temp today was 57.

On a side note DEC was out checking today and then they broke down....we almost had to tow them in.
