They certainly Werent at the Dam ,I got there at 7 am and one of the regular "Dam Sharpies" was there also , he wasnt doing anything and left at 8 , There were Tons of Emerald Shiners hugging the bank at high tide so I threw on a 3.8" Keitech (approximate same color) on a 5/8oz jig head and proceeded to smash 2 lb Smallmouth, Some more regulars came down also . Everyone was throwing something different , No Stripers , stayed until 2pm low tide .
Be back this weekend with some different set-ups .

The big girls are moving through....my buddy went out in Marlboro yesterday and crushed them up to 41". He caught 35 fish. This early run of stripers are hungry but there will be a lull coming as they move past waiting for the next wave of true migrants to come up the river.

Killer fish for one from the kayak!

I bought a kayak last year when i thought the launches were going to be closed and then the launches opened up so i used the boat. I figured I was better off getting familiar with a kayak in 65-70 degree water than 50.

I ended up getting one schoolie on the river but this year I'm definitely after one the size of yours.

We finally splashed the boat and drove down from Albany to Marlboro...basically side scanning the entire river. We really did not mark much until we got down to Norrie where we started to see some decent schools......yesterday we fished Marlboro and did very well for this time of year.....ended up with 13 fish up to 38"/24lbs. For this time of year the fishing is excellent....but remember....these are early fish and they travel in waves so you may have a great day then a few days of nothing so don't get discouraged.

Very nice fish off a kayak!!!
That sucker probably woulda pulled me into the drink and landed me in the newspaper obitruaries.
Later that same day I was scouting out launch access in the beacon area, but didnt really find anything. I did find a nice secluded spot, but too far from parking to use as a launch. Just as I reached the shoreline, a cow broke the surface that was easily as big as yours, only some 15 feet from the shoreline. I've never seen that large of a striper break surface that close to shore, so I took it as a omen to return another day.
With that in mind, if someone could kindly PM me with info on kayak launch sites near Beacon, it would be much appreciated.
Tight lines everyone!!!

The weather report for yesterday was crappy but the river was nice and sky blue till 2pm....glad I did not listen and went out....we ended up with 8 for the day most in the mid 20" range but real fat good keepers if you wanted to keep one...also aggressive fighters. We started around White's Marina but that dried up fast and we found more fish in the north end of Marlboro Bay. Most of these fish are moving north fast...they will hit the bait and if they do not get it they keep going instead of circling back for it....this is typical of the early travelers that are not going to reside in this area but are continuing to move North.
