Default staten island stripers

hello every one i live in
new York and i fish Staten Island almost daily. fishing the past 3 seasons has bin good. but this season has bin poor and mediocre at best.

i have tried all previously successful baits bunker, clams, poppers and cranks. to no avail. I have also noticed a bait fish scarcity.

so my questions are.
why are the stripers, and blues not biting?

can i use live eels from shore? and will they work?

welcome jimmy,

no fish there

hit the "search button" and key in "fishing with eels" and the multiple threads you read will teach you all you need to know about fishing eels.

and under no circumstance will anyone give out specific spots to anyone here. asking that particular question is gonna draw negative attention by anyone reading it.
welcome to the site and key in any query you would like to understand in the search button. any thread you respond in will draw a response from someone . this thread will tell you why no spot burning here" that is in general" -- https://www.stripers247.com/phpBB2/sh...908#post117908 --but it is a rule here and posts giving specific locations (SPOTS) are immediately edited and or deleted.

Live eels work great from shore. Cast, retrieve slowly . If your spot is not producing right now, don't be afraid to explore and try new areas. Just keep them to yourself, for your own sake and the sake of all others who might happen to fish there regularly.

eels are one of the most producing baits you can use. I like to fish mine weightless. i use 50lb leader tied to a 7/0 gamakatsu. hook them under the jaw and out one eye on there head. Also you can whack there back on a bucket to prevent him tangling your line, but not to hard.

cast him out there wait till he is around the bottom, then reel him in sloooow.

when you get a hit it will feel like a tap, this is when you bow to the cow till your line tightens. Then cross his eyes.

if your fishing a channel or current, through him upstream and let him drift back past you. pending on the current will depend on how you want to reel him in or just let him drift. Remember the bass are on the bottom so you want you eel as close to the bottom as possible.

good luck, oh yea watch out for eel slime, bring a rag

better off fishing them eels at night.
bluefish are everywhere and i think it's a waste of a good eel(s) as it is an easy target and likely what you'll pick up. or should i say get em bitten in half.
and i know everyone on staten island jim..
Here is a link to a thread that has a little eeling tutorial for you to look at. sorry i see what happened to your search. "3rd page"

one tip I can give you when using eels

have some sand with you . the sand sticks right to them and you can hook them much easier then with a towel in your hand . just my $.02

I also like to knock em against my cooler to stun them a bit .

i don't believe you!
you lie to me all the time!
call me philly.. i will put you on fish.
i am working 10 hour days 6 days straight.
night bite is iffy, water way too warm.
weakies are on the sand porgies in some spots off arden ave.
find them and short bluefish are around gettin hit by weaks as well.
can't just sit around waiting. move till you see life. south shore not seeing much action but GK is dead i heard. this E wind should bring some life to the water. "as well as debris on the beach side of GK. but overall, no peanut bunker as i think the 50+ school of dolphin off seguine beach had at it with em. you know it's bad out front for bait when those bastages come into the bay to eat..

From Tony Somma - Staten Island Live

Staten Island fishing: Say goodbye to the blues

The fall season continues to develop. Blues are starting to migrate away from the Island and bass are showing at their usual haunts. Blackfishing is pretty good on the inshore wrecks and rock piles, and blackfish, sea bass and porgies are being caught on the Sandy Hook Reef.

Dino at Michael’s Bait and Tackle, Great Kills, says blackfishing is good behind Easy Pass and off of the Cromwell Pier, and bass are showing off of Sandy Hook and Breezy Point. Good numbers of schoolie bass and some keepers are showing in the back of the bay where some bluefish are still showing.

From Paul at Great Kills Bait and Tackle we learn the beaches and bay are producing blues and bass with anglers chasing the birds enjoying good action.

Most of the bass are being landed late in the day and at night. Blackfishing is red-hot on the offshore lumps and pieces, and slowing down inshore. Bass are showing off Seguine Point and the Conference House. The sea wall behind Easy Pass is producing good blackfish action.

Phyllis at Aunt Phyllis’ Bait Shop, Midland Beach, reports the Ocean Breeze Fishing Pier is producing lots of blackfish, a few bluefish and an occasional keeper bass.

Patty at Scags Bait and Tackle, Snug Harbor, says blackfishing is very good at the Home Port, Penny Beach and the St. George Fishing Pier which is also producing bluefish and schoolie bass. The Terrace is producing bass on bait. On the fresh water scene, bass are showing at Silver Lake, and carp and catfish are showing at Clove Lake.

From Captain Anthony Belasario of Barbara Anne Fishing Charters we learn since the middle of last week blackfishing has been red hot with fares landing fish to 7-pounds. Charters are now sailing exclusively for blackfish weather permitting.

Captain Rob Skonieczny from Outcast Charters said anglers limited out on blackfish to 6 pounds on Sunday. Fishing was just OK with lots of drops fished. No striped bass were seen. Future trips will mix in striper fishing if the linesiders are run across on the way home.

Chris from Crabby’s Bait and Tackle, Keyport, says striped bass fishing improved with fish to 22-pounds landed at Sandy Hook Channel on eels. Eels also produced bass to 24-pounds around the Hook and at Flynn’s Knoll. Birds were seen working peanut bunker and sand eel bait from Keyport to Sandy Hook with a mix of bass and blues schooled underneath.

Beach anglers have also done well landing bass to 19 pounds at Cliffwood Beach and Union Beach which also produced a 47-pound drum. Bottom fishing served up red-hot catches of blackfish, sea bass and porgies on area rock piles and at the Sandy Hook Reef

I fished a few of my SI surf spots from the boat yesterday and found no signs of life. Went out to Romer and there were small pods of bass all over the shoal. They are feeding on sand eels at Romer and Breezy. I have not seen much bait close to home, so I don't really expect any significant number of bass to show up unless that changes.

I've been catching a good amount of fish for the past two weeks here on the Jersey side. Mostly shorts up to "pinch the tail" keepers off the beach with a few better fish from 10# to 16# in the back - all you want shorts on the beach, two or three better fish a night in the back.

Last night, however, sucked! First suck-ass night for quite a while. That big bright spotlight up in the sky seemed to have put the fish completely off.
