It must be Embarrassing to have to Teach your son that it is "Proper Etiquette" to pull your $20,000 boat up in front of a Shore Fisherman , while having 2 miles of river in each direction to fish. I mean , I wish I had pics , I was casting beyond them as they were approaching the shoreline directly in front of me .

What a Joke , I mean , you could Plainly see me from 200 yrds. away !!


So, to the question .. there are Tons of Herring in the river Albany area ,

and as long as there are / is food they will stay , I'll be fishing it for the next two weeks Easy

Thanks for the update. As for the inconsiderate boater...I feel your pain. Iíve had some people cruise past me while Iím on anchor that clearly had a common sense deficiency. In any event, good luck.

Were they setting up and fishing or jigging bait?

That stretch along those rocks seems to always produce herring when you can't get it in the main river. It's obviously a very long stretch and it's easy to avoid an area where people are fishing from shore. At the same time if that's the only spot to get herring (i'm thinking of off the Poesty when they first arrive) it seems like boat guys shouldn't be expected to avoid the only area with bait.


I don't have any issues with any of it and try to avoid all conflicts with other people - on shore or in a boat.

Same thing anywhere you are fishing from shore this time of year . . Fyshh Trap. . A well placed 4..5. . Or 6 oz. Sinker is great for keeping the boats away . .

Again I have been able to get out for just a few hours and have met Soo many people from just North of the Corning Preserve to just shy of the Dam .
Today was met with two back to back 28" fish and just when I thought it was gonna be a banner day it stopped . I switched to chunking from my usual jigging banter and caught 8 Cats , just one after another just below the 378 bridge .
There are Soo much Herring in the river now Albany area and Shad , "yep" caught some of them also , that the Bass are not going anywhere too soon .
It may be quick but I think we have another good week of larger fish still looming .
Rain and water temps have been fluctuating and a lot of bass are just "Hanging " with all of the Herring and baitfish in the area.
Because of this last semester of school I have only yet Begun to get out , But you know me , I'll be fishing for 'em till September and racking up my numbers !!
Let Us know how you are doing on Any Shore Fishing Reports ,
They are Still here !!
