Default New to the Hudson

Hi everyone, new river fisherman here! Planning to give it my best shot this spring! Got the boat and gear just not the Striper experience. Been reading quite a bit here on the forum, very interesting and lots of knowledgeable fisherman! Regarding the herring, any advice on where, when and how to catch them?

Thanks-Mike

Mike - drag your butt up to Albany / Troy and i will show you how to catch em ...... fishing for them is the same up and down the river but getting bait differs depending on where on the river you are fishing.

We get the herring so thick up my way that you can get em while anchored with no trouble at all.

I was in Florida and never signed in but great laker mount by the way ...... i was thinking about some sort of glass shelf above mine with a hole in it ..... then mount a little rod holder on the wall with a jigging rod in it... the line going down through the hole and to a lure in the mouth of the fish .... it would look like ti was under the ice

Never had great luck north of catskill, we have trolled north successfully, but up there meat is king. Early in the run though we head south and trolling cant be beat. The fish are usually smaller but the numbers are always greater. We run either leadcore or downriggers depending on who i hve on the boat and will also run boards when the debris allows it.

Just remember if youre like me and have the habit of wrapping your lead around your trigger finger while yankin DONT do it on the hudson! Those big stripers hit quite a bit harder than those lakers .

I'm here too, under yet another name . I plan on getting the trolling boat on the Hudson and try dragging some herring around on the riggers. Might take me a while to figure it out (speed, depth, rigging herring) but I'll probably be looking for company. Talked to the guys at work and we will likely change Wednesday night poker into striper fishing.

Hey Jager61,
If you're still interested in catching herring via hook and line (from a previous post):

Yes, you can catch them on hook and line with sabiki rigs. Use a light weight spinning rod, clip a 1/2 oz. sinker on the bottom of the sabiki rig, pitch it out into the mighty Hudson and jig it back in, or simply reel it back. They hit the hooks (no snagging necessary)...some fight kinda good! I got my sabikis on ebay but I believe the tackle shops carry them. I didn't know that herring were carnivorous...at least they eat these hooks!
Best Wishes,
jt

Some have said that this technique will not work too far below Albany, due to water clarity, or lack thereof. I believe that they go for netting herring.
Cheers man!
jt

I'm in the beacon area and if you want to catch herrin, I see a lot of people using a spoon and net. I've never done this but looks easy. Cast out the spoon with light spinning tackle (no hook on the spoon, you don't need it) use the slowest retrieve you can, then watch (helps if you have polarized glasses ) for them to follow and lead them into your net. Repeat as necessary. Two people make this technique easier. Good luck
