The bite just continues to improve and today was a banner day with some serious cows in the mix. We ended up with 31 for the day up to 37 in/22lbs. We caught lots of fish in the 30+ inch range in Milton. The bite was best flood tide into slack because there is so much water moving out of the River that essentially we stalled and had no drift for 4 hours...stayed in almost the same spot and this is what the fish seem to want this time of year. They are lazy and have no interest in chasing food. The evening slack tide was just as good and it was hard to leave with the bite still on but we had to get home. A bunch of the fish actually hit the worms running south so I'm guessing some of the bass that will stay in our area have arrived and they are not all just traveling through. I have 2 days of work then back out for 5 days. Water temps were 54-56 degrees.

Doc
Thanks for the information. So, Milton Area is hot. I am not all that familiar with the area so can you give me a landmark and approximate distance north of the NB bridge? I assume you were on the east side and at what depth was the most consistent action?

Thanks for the help. It is a pretty long drive to get to Newburgh launch

I met one of those charter guys this morning on my quest for bait. Nice guy, saw some other pictures of it this morning. Impressive. No such luck for me today.

Another epic day on the water but today was extra special as we set our boat record with a COW.....45 inches/38.5 lbs caught on an eel at slack tide just south of Shadows in Poughkeepsie. She railed the eel and took off. We also got a nice 30in fish on the same eel earlier. Today's total was 33. Most of our fish were in the 24-38" range but they are getting more aggressive. Although...my last fish for the day was a a 39"/24lb male...quite large for a male...thought it was a cow until it spewed all over. I also set a personal record of being able to set the hook on 2 rods while taking a leak off the side of the boat........this always seems to happen...LOL. Today's bite was much better in the am Flood into slack.......the fastest we drifted for 4 hours was 0.5mph. The fish still are quite lazy and do not want to chase the bait as when the tide picked up on ebb the bite shut down....then picked up again for the evening slack tide. My last 39" male was caught when we were picking up the rods to reset our drift......I heard a slight tick on the reel but thought I caught a log or something...when I started to reel it in it just stopped then he took off. He seemed to be sucking on the worm for a while. Interesting is that when we hung an eel off one rod we got way more hits on all the other rods...I'm convinced that it attracts the Striper to the boat them being such a competitive fish.....I've also noticed in the past the same with a herring...we still catch more on bloodworms but having a herring or eel in the water clearly helps the whole game. Water temps today cooled off for the am and started at 51 degrees........ending at 54 degrees.


The Striper are still booking it North so these fish will move on. Don't get depressed as we will have a lull in the action before the main wave arrives in a week.

Put 2 in the boat this am up to 31" on chunk. They slammed it pretty aggressively. Wanted to put in a full day but the wind rain and waves made it absolutely miserable out there in my little tin boat. Heading back out in the am.

Mother Nature is trying to keep us off the water with cold/rain but we said no. Marlboro was quite dead today...we only managed 3 fish there but one was 35 in/ 18 lbs....a personal best for one of my crew, Rachael today. Newburgh had good school along the east side from Dennings and North but they only fed during Flood into Slack tide. The bite dropped significantly on the Ebb tide with the fast moving current. The SE wind kicked up in the afternoon which didn't help. Most of the Newburgh fish were 24-28 inches but my buddy from Keeping it Reel Charters managed a nice 40.5" fish in the early morning Flood tide. Marlboro temps were 51 and Newburgh was 54 degrees. This evening Marlboro bay was a complete ghost town with not one fish on the screen when we left at 8pm.


The water temps started out 8 degrees warmer than last year but this cold/rainy weather has put then on par now with the last 5 years......generally ran 52-55 on May 3rd.
