On the am flood our first drift yielded us 44 as wwe drifted up toward the Esopus lighthouse. The school of Striper running on the west wall of the channel was miles long and headed south. Early am the got down to Marlboro and the fishing was good ther today. Wwe followed the school down oast Rogers Point, Poughkeepsie and into Marlboro Bay and picked at them all day before the bite shut down. Yes....they are clearly moving south pist spawn but there are a whole lotta Stripers left up north that have yet to come down and they are still spawning. They have nit reached Newburgh yet but I suspect they will be there in a day or so. This school was moving incredibally fast and slammed our baits meaning business....sometimes one fish hitting 2 rods. Water temps are climbing and are up to 62 in Marlboro and up at Norrie. We will be out at first light again to take advantage of the early am bite which lasted from the end of flood into slack and half way through ebb.

Late post today as we fished all night......5/26.....we ended up with 104 and broke the 1000 mark for the year. Milton and south of Poughkeepsie was absolutely on fire.....we couldnt keep the rods baited fast enough. We got into bigger fish too......28 over 30" with about 15 of them in a row in one drift at IBM. Through the nigt last night we marked tons of schools mid channel moving south but on a feeding frenzy too.....unreal bite all night but best at the slack tides as these fish a still lazy and do not want to chase bait when the tide is moving over 1 mph. Both ebb into slack and flood into slack were good. The bite has slowed a bit this am as these fish have moved south but there are more coming down so we are on a mission to intercept them now. Milton should lite up again today esp flood into slack.

Put in at Schodack SP, 62 deg good clarity. Many marks on the FF but only got one herring. Hooked it through the nostril, fished him on the bottom, suspended and drifting for two hours, nothing. Let him go, swam away. Luckiest herring in the world.

Launched norrie point today 7am - noon.

Choppy on my little 14ft boat. Some marks on the fish finder, definitely better than catskill last few days.

Drifted 3 lines one 3 reel handle turns off bottom, another 15ft, a third floated at 5 feet. All chunk.

No luck finding bait, so no live herring. Catskill has been hard at the park with stoolies past few days too.

Whats the strategy with a plain boat, no fancy trolling equipment? Looks like this week is rain..... Im in catskill only to fish too.....

Saw one boat trolling with regular largemouth gear. Deep diving jerkbaits and medium strength setup.


Doc, what do you suggest? Looks like live herring will be a no go.

Find marks on fishfinder. Drift bloodworms +/- 20 feet. Tight lines. Fool proof.

You need bloodworms or sandworms and drift them anywhere from 15-20 feet.....on occasions when the feeding zone looks a bit deeper you may have to drift 21-28 feet. You can determine this by the depth the majority of the fish are running....if you see the bottom stacked don't waste your time as they will not feed there. They go down to the channel floor to travel and rest..not feed. You also need to know the natural currents of the river as to what line they will be traveling in to feed....for Norrie point it is frequently the west channel drop off.

Yesterday (5/27) was another good day although not as good as the prior week. We found some schools early in the day just south of Poughkeepsie and north of the Canoe Club and picked away at them. After 2 hours they moved on. As the Ebb current increased the fish seemed to scatter for most of the day. They did show up at Ebb into slack from IBM to Trap rock and some moved into Marlboro Bay. The Slack tide at IBM never really lit up like the day before. We also checked the area around White's and the Power Plant and it was pretty dead. At the end of the night on Flood tide we drifted Marlboro bay and it was pretty loaded just south of Trap Rock again. We have now marked more fish on the West side too as they are starting to exit. Last night there was a fair amount of spawning in the northern end of Marlboro Bay...quite impressive. We ended the day with 58 most in the 25 inch range. Water temps went from 62 to 64 degrees. Work today then out again tonight into tomorrow.

I have to say this has been by far the best year for us ever with 1103 Striper boated to date (Only 5 kept....rest released) because we have adapted to different parts of the river and are able to go where the fish are...although I added my gas bill to over 4K so far with all the traveling. My buddy JJ is well over 1200 for the season.

Youch $4000 in gas!


I'm guessing drifting in that many feet of water with chunk is useless.... Need worms. Does drifting with live herring mid channel mid depth worth it.


Where can you find them? Red Hook shop is out. Catskill opens Thursday. Will try Norrie point this weekend again, but with nicer 16ft deep V, with canopy and 20hp outboard.


I bought (8) challenger 4inch deep divers today. 4 gold/yellow. 2 tiger green. And 2 in purple shad.


Someone I know is selling their 1802 trophy with Yamaha 4 stroke and kicker end of this summer! Think it has atleast 2 downriggers if not more.


Anyone have a good book on the subject? Been looking for a few years. closest thing I found is a 1990's book on the Delaware river. Covers all species, seasons, and styles of fishing.

Keeping it Reel Bait and Tackle on 58 Noxon Road in Poughkeepsie has herring, bloods, sands and sometimes eels. They have a FB page. The depth does not matter that much....in fact...this time of year when they are spawning they are generally hanging out over very deep water.....2w ago I crushed them over 132 FOW at Crumb Elbow by Rogers Point....even in that depth they still only hit around 18 feet down.

Might just go all the way down there to get worms.


Doc thanks for the tips and the reports.


I know the catskill baitshop owner really likes drifting with a bobber on a 15ft leader with live.


You guy ever tried the dead eels rigs. I got about 2 dozen frozen eels I need to rig up. Never tired them in the Hudson though. Mostly inlets in RI and NJ.

Put in at Coxsuckie today, fished the falls on the Stockport and got herring, Fished there and the cliffs, one kinda run, buncha marks in the river. Next time I go, in my Hudson River Cooperative Angler log book, I will write I am fishing for 'anything.'

Hit the water at 4am today (5/29) and it was worth getting up early........the first light bite was good and we ended up with 27 total in the 21-28 inch range. We drifted from IBM to the Rock plant and did well in the main channel. The fish are now hitting very aggressively and still heading North on the hit. The west side of the river is also loaded with Striper traveling back down. We did go down to Millionaire Row (just N of the Newburgh Bridge) and marked some very large fish. My buddy ended up with 5 over 30 inches there. There were also some very thick schools under the Bridge down to the first set of tanks that did feed on the am slack to flood tide. So far the Slack tides have had the best bite and the top of the current shuts the bite down. The evening bite was not too good on the Flood as most of the fish were on the channel floor. We rode out the T Storms at dock and went back out afterwards but the bite was poor and we only managed one after the storms. More fish are also starting to move into Marlboro Bay. Water temps were 63-64 degrees. I will be back out this Friday into the weekend. My prediction is that Newburgh will get much better as the northern fish travel back south and hopefully stay in the Bay for a few days before traveling out to sea. There should be a solid 10 more days to this run which is normally dwindling down by now...there are still a ton of fish up North that need to come down....you just need to figure out when they feed.


My mate took the boat out yesterday (5/28) and managed 17 nice fish up to 37 inches..........including several unspawned females in the same area we fished today.

I never got a hit on a dead eel in the Hudson.........plenty of hits on live eels. You can also use a bobber the same way with a worm...esp when it is not calm as it presents the bait much better and will get more hits as opposed to your poles bouncing around with the boat.


Make sure you call the bait shop....I think he is putting in his last order for bloods and sands this Friday.
