What section of the river you plan on hitting ?

The best bait option (IMO) is live Herring, which can be netted or jigged up (there is a whole thread about catching Herring with lots of good info) can not buy live herring anywhere. Some prefer chunk, while more down river guys have luck with blood and sand worms.

Most guys i know go with a slider rig, using either egg sinker or plastic weight slide on the line. Than a barrel swivel with 2'-3' leader and a hook. I prefer circle hooks, some guys like j-hooks.

Check out some past threads on the board , tons of information should answer all your questions.

Good luck

BB

the best word of advice i can give is.....................take up trout fishing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....it cost less, more predictable, they are here all year, your wife won't leave because you are out fishing all the time and over all it's alot less stressful to walk a stream then deal with nys and its laws.

Well welcome, I hope you enjoy cobleskill, I graduated there in 93. You have come to the right place, I myself was like you last year and these guys really helped out. Noone will give up there spots and I do not blame them but they will help you with techniques. I have followed there advice to a tee and actually started to put fish in the boat. The best advice I was given was to go out with a charter 1st, you will learn just about everything you need. Try to get a hold of a boat and just experiment. The more fish I caught the more I realized there was no pattern, some drifting some sitting. Live bait and the bottom rigs that everyone talks about was the only constant. Good luck.

Being new to Striper fishing, is it better when drifting with live hearing to be in continuous contact with the bottom or to be up of bottom 2-3 foot?

How fast should the drift be? Seemed to me like we were going alot faster than other boats last weekend ! Or does the speed even matter ?

Is drifting more productive than still fishing with an anchor?
