Haven't been getting out much this year. Went out from 6am-3pm today. Bait was easy to jig up. Pretty slow day but I ended up catching a 40" 25lb on live and a 41" 33lb on chunk. Marked some decent schools but no other runs. Hitting it again tomorrow.

Mom was nice enough to share Mother's day with the fish, but people were not nice enough to share the bloodworms. Ceelys was out at 5:45 this morning with an 8 dozen sale. Can't imagine why so many people buy this much. I haven't gone through more than 3 dozen, that was 5 people, 30 fish.
I was able to stay drifting over heavy schools for hours today in Newburgh. We got several "tastes" of sandworm and zero takers. We saw a handful of worms that were ripped but not gulped enough to get the hook. These fish are damn picky!
Hope the bloodworm stock picks up, this will be a tragic season ;

Pulled in a fish today that was very dull in color and very pink/red. It put up a Hell of a fight and swam away strong. Anyone else encounter this before? I've caught countless stripers over the years and this is a first for me. Possibly early mycobacteriosis? The pic doesn't do it justice. Didn't want to dick around with her for too long..

The end of the weekend trip for me. Started around 5 am sun was coming up and 35 degrees out. 6 am bottom of the out going tide got one more fish 37 inches to end the weekend early . Try to get out this week down River hopefully. And BUB i might be wrong but looks like your fish just had been beat up from the spawn. I saw a few fish possibly spawning where I was near Esopus. The cold weather is holding everything perfectly still. I think we haven’t seen the best yet

A decent weekend despite the weather Saturday. Put my buddy's wife on her first eve striper, and my 85 year old father in law landed a 41" 29 pound fatty. We were about to pack it in and got called over to a boat with engine issues. Towed them into Whites where they docked. We've all gotta look out for each other out there. Looks like a cool week will keep water temps about where they are now. I think the best is yet to come.

The fishing is quite good with some variations in bite but if you persevere you will get them. Spawning is in full force from Poughkeepsie to Norrie as of Sat am and the fish are hungry. Esopus/Norrie was the place to be this past week. Marlboro to Poughkeepsie did not have the numbers but did produce some sizeable fish. We ended up with another 202 fish up to 41 inches. Our big ones were caught just off the rock plant in Marlboro early around 5am. Sat we noticed many of the fish were headed south on the hit so they have started their pattern of circling the bays and areas where they have settled waiting for the females to come out of the shallows when ready to spawn. There was so much spawning between Roger's Point and Norrie Sunday about 5am we had to avoid them like debris going up the river. Water temps have really held steady around 56-58 degrees which is good to keep the run prolonged. We are pretty much on schedule with prior years.....don't forget last year was an exceptionally cold year and at this time the water temps were around 52-55 degrees. As with every year around May 8-11 we had that one day where the bite was tough and the fish were there but not hungry....this is the tell tale sign that they are staging to spawn and absolutely NOT interested in feeding....well that day this year was May 8-9th when the bite was tough for the volume of fish on the screen. From here on the bite will only get better at the post spawn fish need to stock up on food for their trip back to sea. And yes...this run if far from over because there are still waves of Stripers coming up the river as the southern strain has not quite arrived in full force yet. These current spawners are the Northern ones that came up in March and never really headed all the way south for the winter. I still have not downloaded any pics but at some point I will. Also...make sure you have sands and bloods.....at certain times they really prefer the sandworms. Overall the bit is still best when the tide is under 1.5mph....and they are now feeding on both tides which means they have settled where they want to be and are not traveling as much.

So me and two friends camped out at Schodack Island SP from last Friday until today. River muddy on Friday, herring would not bite. Saturday we boated to the mouth of the Poestenkill and got a lot of bait. River still muddy, no bass. Sunday the river cleared and the herring turned on and so did the bass. Monday and Tuesday the same. Today, nothing. Above the port. As best as I can recollect, there was a 24, a 28, two at 30, a 31, a 32, a 33, 36, 37, three in the 38-9 inch range, and a 41. All on live bait with circle hooks. Two were gut hooked but swam away. If you dressed for ice fishing the weather was ok. I will download a few pics and vids. I was low hook. My friends are from the lower Hudson Valley, it was nice showing them the joys of a fresh live herring.

My dopey buddy forgot his tape measure so I lent him mine and all I had was a yardstick. Put the zero at the fork in the tail. I say over 40. PB or close to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb7tQWKHugw

Congrats on your PB man! Danielson makes a nice 48" bump ruler. Takes all the guessing work out of it.

What worked best? Free lining or weight on the bottom?
