Fished from 5am-10am south of Athens. Bait was easy to scap and jig. Ended up putting 19 in the boat with the biggest being a 37" female that took me roughly 40 mins to land. They're hitting like freight trains. Live.. chunk.. whole dead...
Hoping to get out tonight for a bit. I'll definitely pull a marathon tomorrow.

On another note: watch out for debris! Super high tides are filling the river with all sorts of junk

Newburgh has been good the last few days but smaller fish around 20-30 with an occassional 35-40. Yesterday a 43" 45lber was landed just south of the NBB.

What a cold, nasty, rainy day but we still managed 26 fish up to 34 inches. All but one caught in Milton. Most fish were 20+ inchez. Water temp was 60.8 degrees. Again they would not feed on outgoing Ebb but turned on for slack and Flood. Water temp was 60 degrees.

Hit the river at the ass-crack of dawn with my 7yo stepson on a mission to get him his first striper.
Limited on bait in two minutes. We put 9 bass in the boat up to 35". 8 of those were on chunk. We did have quite a few run and drops on live though. All in all it was a successful morning.

Fished for about 4 hours from 3 to 7pm, north of IBM to the bridges. We caught two , one short and one 36in (17 pounds). Fish really started to school up in the hit zone when we had to leave. Broke 100 fish today, 101 trying to break 150 before season is up. Fish hit at 22ft

Who says you need fresh bloodworms lol!

Due to the weather forcast and just buying a new house, didn't think I would get out there this weekend. Then when I saw it was gonna be nice sunday afternoon/evening, I figured I would go out for a few hours....all I had in the fridge were 2 week old bloods. Figured what the hell better to be on the water than home doing shit. When I opened the ziplock they were in, I almost barfed....they were rancid.

Fished from the Marlboro to Poughkeepsie from 4 to 8 tonite. Got a 33" about 5 minutes after putting my lines in...then a few run offs over the next few hours...no hook ups. Then about 10 min before I was gonna head in, hooked into a 39", about 30 pound (from what my cheap ass scale said) fish south of the stack. The drift was taking me towards the rocks so while fighting it (I was alone, 2 people cancelled on me), I had to start the boat and pull away from the rocks. I thought for sure I would lose her...still have not broken the 40" barrier but this is a personal best for me. Got it around 8pm right after DocZ who had been drifting near me for like 45 minutes took off the the center of the river....glad he didnt have to witness the clown show that was me trying to get this thing on the deck alone and not crash into the rocks lol.

On a side note, just closed on a lakefront house on Upper Greenwood Lake in NJ. Finally had the chance to drop a line off my boat dock,...within 10 casts landed about a 2 pound Largemouth on a Jitterbug...a good omen I think....I know what I will be doing in my retirement when that eventually comes. Its like living on the Catskill Game Farm there...geese, ducks, woodpeckers, birds, chipmonsks, rabbits, even a fox that lives on my property and is always hunting in the woods across the road.

All fish safely revived and released of course.....


Mike

Nice job Mike....we watched you fumble that striper......LOL. We crushed our last years record by adding 18 to our total which is now 518....and 10+ more days to go.....this is going to be a banner year. Last night we anchored just S of the NBB east side and had no luck....it was windy and rough as it was in the am. We started off in Newburgh bay because there were HUGE marks in the middle of the channel in the strike zone but just like yesterday they refused to feed on the am ripping outgoing tide.....after 2 dinks we headed back to our trusted line that always produces from the IBM plant to the Canoe Club and started catching. There were no solid schools but a steady flow on the incoming tide. The drift was tough because the wind pushed us NE. Then the fish disappeared literally for a few hours and reappeared in the same spot in the evening. We started to see more fish in the channel in Marlboro bay which has been slow but normally produces tons of fish.....I just don't think they have arrived there yet.....they are late. Water temp in Newburgh was 59 and Milton was 62.8 which explains the better bite up there.

Marlboro and North to Poughkeepsie was on fire today.....we are up to 85 for the day and climbing......fish bite turned off for a bit with the incoming tide but it will turn on again as we approach slack to outgoing in 2 hours.
