Default anybody willing to help/teach me how to

Hi all
I am looking for someone to help me learn how to catch stripers. I come in from Bainbridge and have been out from Kingston a few times but would be willing to go somewhere else if needed.
So far I have caught one very small (like 9 ins) and one that was 19 inches on large shiners but nothing consistent. any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Wayne

by 'out' from kingston i presume you have a boat. but forget kingston. think albany. find a place to stay where you can park your boat. launch early, stay late. learn to catch herring, its easy. anchor up above the port. wait. like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yc1W44hKdhc

If you have a boat don't waste your time going North.....take it to Newburg of from Kingston go down to Norrie point.........those areas will be loaded with fish in the next few weeks. Use bloodworms or sandworms and suspend them 15-20 ft down as you drift.

Take a charter, you will learn quickly. I would recommend Off the Charters in Newburgh. Capt Bob will put you on fish and assist you anyway he can.
Book as soon as you can. IMHO

Catching the herring and using them to catch the bass is the essence of the run IMHO. You can use worms, troll, cast plugs at the dam. But there is something about catching a 9 inch herring, putting it on a big hook, putting it out there and having a bass swallow it whole.

And check out the price of bloodworms. I bet they don't sell them in Bainbridge. The herring are free.

Herring works better north of Kingston.....Bloods and Sands prevail south of Kingston when the gets going. The only exception is early and late in the run when the bigger females are coming up early then back down later.

I've gotten them from Northern Dutchess Archery in Red Hook. They usually have herring and eels too. They're handy on days when the scapping is lousy.
