Today in Albany. I guess the bass leave before the herring and shad. Or I suck at fishing. One or the other. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaK9dNJNU6w

Don't feel bad....that's not a school of stripers....its a traveling school of herring....you could have dropped a sabiki rig in it and found out. Striper schools are not that tight.

The Striper are definitely exiting the river fast but they are still here. The first sunrise bite is when they are feeding. Throughout the day there are pods of fish coming by on the West side but they are not very hungry. Their prime goal is to travel and they will feed mostly from the end of Flood tide into slack. They seen too tired to chase any food when the current gets going. There are also lots of Stripers on the channel floor traveling south. We fished from Milton to south of Cornwall. Newburgh Bay was pretty empty most of the day and was rough with 3-4 foot waves from the South wind. Most of our fish today were small.........even got a bunch of 10 in Stripers that could barely fit a 5-0 hook in their mouth. Thunderstorms pushed us off the river before the night bite which I suspect would have been good. Water temps were a consistent 64 degrees. I am rethinking the importance of water temps in their migratory pattern and leaning more toward the calendar as being the prime driving force. Bass love 62-64 degree water which is the best temps for spawning but this year they got it done before the river hit those temps and starting booking south like clockwork at the end of the month. Looking at my records...no matter what the temps/weather or moon phases were these fish always do the same thing the end of May......Leave. We will be back out tomorrow. There are still plenty of big fish up North that are migrating south and I hope to intercept them but fishing from here on will be spotty...if you are luck to hit a feeding school on the way out you will crush them....but most of the days will be slow.
