Default Fishing from a boat, help?

I have been Striper fishing from shore for 5 years now, and have owned a boat for 3 years. I will have the boat in the water in about 2 - 3 weeks. I feel comfortable fishing from shore, but feel like it's going to be a whole different story fishing from a boat. If anyone could give me some basic direction, it would be appreciated..I won't be able to afford downriggers this year, so forget trollin. I intend on using lures as well as live bait; blood worms, herring, bunker...Looking for some tactics as well as rigs and weight suggestions...Any help?

In the same boat as you - so to speak.
I Bought a boat during the winter and it will be my first time consistently fishing from a boat on the Hudson. Something that everyone has told me is that a FishFinder is a must - (also having the depth on the screen is good for safety reasons).
I plan on getting a few of the so called "experts" on my boat to show me the best spots and tactics. Will post back if they teach me anything earth shattering.

I fished from shore for years, from Newburgh to Albany and always had success. Fishing from the boat seems to be a lot harder :)

Catching herring up in the Albany area was always very easy... catching herring in the Newburgh area IS NOT. I've never NEVER had any luck with a sabiki in the Newburgh area... maybe I'm just doing it wrong.

I've tried anchoring the boat and tossing out herring chunks, but the current always seems to strong to hold bottom (except during slack tide). I have had luck drifting the boat and using bloodworms. I personally prefer to anchor as I find it more relaxing and hope to try again this weekend with some chunks. I'll be out of Newburgh, blue bayliner discover, Ruff Rider on the cooler.

Is there a VHF channel people like to use? For the most part I never hear anyone chatting.

The channel we use is 68. fishing from a vessel on a weekend Never Anchor unless your way out of the way as most of us drift. Fish Finder rig light bank sinker 2 oz or less and Bloods If bunker. know how much line you have out. use whole or cut the head on the Diagonal so as some of the guts is still there <*\ hook it through the top and let it drop over the side Males usually are running in the upper water column the Cows are down low Use a couple of poles and also have obne ready for to toss a plug or other artificial out there. Last night water was still at 50 degrees try to catch the tides. so far this week the fish were being picky had only two runs but they spit the hooks.
