question for everyone using live herring. when you are rigging up the bait what kind of hook and rig are you using. I've been using a fish finder rig with a circle hook. just looking to see if there are any better options to keep the bait in the strike zone longer.

Fished from 6:30am to 6:30 pm Rensselaer to the dam...only a few good run and drops...saw 1 fish boated. That's it. Returned to the boat launch and the lot was empty...not even the shore guys were there.

Was able to get out for a couple of hours with a friend on my boat. that hasn't striper fished in over 13 years. I put him right on fish, he boated 4 today, biggest 27" of course I can't give out my secret spots! He is hooked again..

I gave some thought to "keeping bait in the strike zone" recently as I have been having zero luck lately and i was wondering if my bait was getting buried on the bottom. Im using chunk, not live so I dont have the added benefit of a live herring trying to swim up the water column to join his friends. I remember back in the day I used to buy striper rigs with an orange foam float on the leader for surf fishing in Rhode Island. I was thinking of either hooking a bobber to my leader to help get it off the bottom or just finding the orange floats. If anyone on here has any knowledge or experience with something like this in the river I would be glad to hear it. I've put in a lot of hours recently with nothing to show for it, not even a run

We put in a full day through the night and went for some bigger fish. We ended up with 16 in the 30-41 in range up to 30 lbs. Most were caught just south of the Poughkeepsie bridge but we hooked into a 41 incher at the IBM plant. That fish was an amazing fight because it felt like a world record hit. He grabbed the worm the peeled off 300 feet of line before we could turn him....even though we were pulling him in with the current it was a struggle. When we got him to the boat he was foul hooked which is why he felt like a 50+ pounder. What happened he grabbed the rattle sinker then as he ran and we set the hook it got belly snagged. This fish was a nice fat 30lb male spewing everywhere. We fished through the night and marked big fish but no more takers. This morning there was some spawning in the channel. The water temp was 56-58. This has been a strange year.....i have never seen more herring down here ever than this year.....it seems like the cold water temps slowed them down or even kept them from moving north more. Back out today.

This was north of Albany. Herring are thick here as well. Although we have few, very few stripers to be seen.

Shore fished(Tues-Thurs) from just below the 396 (South Troy) bridge Renns. side for a few Schoolies,(lures only) small bucktails were working in White and Pink, up at the Dam was Dead, saw a few fish caught over three days, Nothing like last year at this time. We are all thinking the water warmed up and the fish held up Wayy South. ?? Will be back next Monday -Friday, hope I'm wrong.
The Herring and Shad were Very scarce also up at the Dam.
Bit slow for me this year(11 fish) , Not giving up just yet. Got a good feelin for next week.
