www.catfishconnection.com Unfortunately, these don't have the bent eye. Still should be able to snell them though, right?

If you snell a strait eye it will pull the hook wrong and you will not get a good hook set.............strait eyes should be tied with a fisherman's knot.

5/22/17....Today was nothing but epic for big fish. We hit the water a 9am despite the rain in the forecast and ended up fishing South of the Mid Hudson Bridge which is where the best chance for a break in the rain was and it paid off...........minimal rain and lots of fish. We ended up with 34 for the day with most fish between 35 and 40 inches and a few smaller ones scattered in. We found a COW hole that was loaded with giant cows...........each time we netted a cow a small male jumped in the net with her. None were spawned yet. We also had numerous fresh appearing fish with a bright silver sheen meaning they have just arrived and have not been in the Hudson very long. The bite slowed about 10pm so we called it quits around 11. Water temp was 59.2 and most of the fish were running the east side of the channel again except for the big ones. We found a natural gorge under the water that split the river running from 5 ft to 60 ft and it was loaded with traveling cows...........we parked on the south exit at slack tide so we didn't move and smashed monsters for 2 hours. The river was glass all day with a good North - South - North drift.........could not have asked for any better conditions. Back to work tomorrow then fishing Wed to Monday. I will not rest.

Great fish Doc Z! Although, that huge girthed one may need gastric bypass surgery

On hook snelling a straight eyed hook: I know the straight eye isn't ideal for snelling, but if you pass the line through the underside (point side) of the hook eye, you should increase your hook ups a little. The thickness of the leader will obviously come into play influencing how much the whole line-knot-hook combo takes a bend.

That may work for worms but does not work for drifting eels as it messes up the action of the eel by pulling on the hook.

Have you had many eels fire ?
I run one eel every time out, and had only 1 start to "walk away", but no hard crushes.. so far...

I do not use eels in the Hudson as it is pain in the ass and Blood worms work just fine....I use them exclusively out at Block Island.

05/23/17. 8:30am to 10:30am newburgh had scattered marks in 40fow. No takers. Decided to go to Marlboro by the power plant. my father and I caught a bunch of dinks, couple of 25 to 29 inches. By the rock plant I landed a 37 inch 16 lb. Bloodworms. 15 to 18 feet down. Little bit of incoming tide into mainly outgoing tide.
I have no idea how my father managed to take the picture with a stamp of his face in the picture haha.

Launched @ Newburgh today from 10 am to 5 pm. Landed 20+. 6 to 8 dinks and shorts. Balance 22 to 34 inches. All on bloods @ 15 to 18 ft. in various depths 30+ FOW. Nothing until the tide started out. When the tide was full slack the bite ended. All fish taken mid-channel from 1/4 mile north of the Castle to about 1/2 - 3/4 mile south of Bannerman. Great day - overcast, and little wind. Warm enuf for tee shirt.

Fished from the mid Hudson bridge south. Not many boats out today. Caught about 15 fish. Nice day on the river with my buddy.

We fished Wed from 7am to today 7am from the Mid Hudson Bridge to Bannerman's Island and ended up with 27 fish in the 20-34 in range with a few small dinks in the mix. We did better in the am as did those down at the island as the bite dried up mid afternoon. Toward the evening there was a another huge school at the island but they were very finicky. The ones that did hit were in the 28-32 in range and very aggressive. The morning fish just south of the Mid Hudson Bridge were smacking the worms and running north..........our one pole on the south side of the boat that went under in the drift absolutely slammed the fish over all the others.

At dusk we drifted from Marlboro all the way up the Mid Hudson Bridge with nothing until just south of the bridge. I hooked into what I thought was a dink as it just tapped the line but when I set the hook I felt like I grabbed a log.....I still did not think she was big as she fought like a 30 in fish (probably wiped out from spawning) but as I got her to the boat my jaw dropped and I screamed for my buddy to wake the F*** up and get the net............needless to say he did not budge so I tried to grab the net myself (1:30am and fumbling) and the hook pulled and I lost her. She was absolutely the biggest/fattest Striper I have every personally seen in the Hudson River to this date..........She was at least 50 inches and well over 50 lbs. She looked like the fish I catch at Block Island. At least I got to see her and get her to touch the side of my boat. She never would have fish in my net anyway.

There was active spawning activity all night just south of the Mid Hudson bride............right next to my boat....giant females getting pummeled by a half dozen males.

We called it quits this morning as the fish were present but more scattered and again not feeding due to this cold rain. There are still plenty of fish and when this rain blows by this weekend could be epic down south as there are tons of fish.

Water temp was 60.3 degrees all day and night.

Too funny Doc ! I tell my 15yr old that my biggest Stripers (on bloods not Herring) just "walk the worm away" just like you mention.
They don't loop up & sweep down - they inhale & swim straight away like a whale !
