Default FISHING NYC by the 59th Street Bridge

Bored & carless for a night, I decided to go fishing the East River in NYC. I do see people fish the east river but by the triborough bridge. I was way too lazy to take that hike, so my brother and I decided to fish the east river right in Mid-Town Manhattan. Boy O Boy the stripers were active and hitting the plastic bait fish & not the bloods. I have pictures but their not loaded just yet. They were small ranging in the 4-8 lb club but did we have fun. Who said fishing NYC is lame?

Nice! I really enjoy fishing in Manhattan and the variety of game fish available. I always fish the west side but from what I hear, due to clearer water the east side is better. Have yet to see any stripers this year but still trying.

Damn,

I 've had no luck in the city yet this year! :( I've drifted and anchored bayridge flats and Ellis island bouy 31.

Great to hear you caught fish, Did you jig the bottom with plastic?

Thanks for the report !

If you see the my boat "Norson" Give a shout 16 or 68.

I may go out thursday night and give it a try again. :twisted:
