The Poughkeepsie area is a great area any where to get the boat in. Your going to want to first figure out how to get herring. Sabiki/ scap net. Many other posts on how to do that. The herring show up first this year will be late for both herring and stripers down by you I'm thinking April 12- 16 maybe earlier or later very weather dependent. Then fishing for stripers around three foot leader (i use mono) heavy test. Big hook around 7/0. And a sinker (bank, pyramid ext) on a sinker slide on main line. Slide is so bait can move. Herring can be fished live or cut up (chunk). That would be the basics many other ways lures or blood/sand worms ext. But beginners would have best luck w herring. Above all have fun and don't be afraid to experiment. ------ Zach

Just south of you in Newbugh bay is some if the best Striper fishing around. I'd definitely go just a bit south.

Welcome to your new addiction!!

I am not familiar with the area you have in question but I would like to head that way myself.

I typically use herring up in Troy, catch them on a sabiki rig.. Then I make my own leaders using 30lb mono from the reel to the tri-swivel then about 2-3ft of 60lb flouro with a 5 or 6/0 hook and hook, and I chunk up the herring. and then on the other part of the swivel i use a pyramid weight and that all depends on how fast the river is moving. Good Luck!!!


From the Albany area typically fish around Troy... Looking for a spot down in Newburgh or Maybe even Haverstraw next Friday..

Up here in troy we kill them with Herring, what is a good bait down there? Bloods, sands, eels, clams??

I use a double clinch/Trilene knot for my 25lb test flouro. Easy and I've never had a problem with it. The heavier the line the hard it is to tie tho.....

We haven't fished there in a few years, but this is where we used to launch. Gets pretty busy at the end of the day, lol.

I use a snell knot.. To be honest I have no particular reason for the heavy line.... I Tried to match up to the pre-made Eagle Claw rigs.....

I have 80 lb braid on one of my set ups would using 30lb fluro leader kinda defeat the purpose of heavy braid

I snell all my hooks with either 40 or 50 lb fluorocarbon. My main line braid is 30 or 40 lb depending on the setup. Only thing I would point out with snelling your own hooks, check the final knot carefully. If any loop is off or seems to not be sitting correctly, cut it off and start again. Also (and this is a point of contention amongst people who tie and design knots...) I put a drop of low viscosity glue into my knots, it wicks into the gaps and helps hold everything together. But again, that is just a step for use after you tie a good knot...don't rely on the glue to hold your snell to the hook.
