Put in at Schodack Island at 11:30 (no docks yet), went up to HH. Wind kicked up for a little bit, but then slacked off. Hi tide falling, water temp about 46, air 65. Clarity about 1.5 feet. One other boat out. Eagles in abundance. No cormorants around.

I went out yesterday for the morning in Rockland co area. It was nice fishing weather. I was mostly scouting around this trip. The main river was 48 degrees and I found some areas up to about 53 degrees. I saw a guy anchored up that looks like he caught a decent number of herring and maybe 1 or 2 small schoolie stripers.

I saw some scattered bait around, and only found good looking marks over one deep water section ~80-90'. I saw one baitfish surface looking a little spooked and found some good marks underneath. I tried a little bit of casting and then looked like I scared them off when I started the engine to troll. It is pretty typical early spring trip for me, especially since I can't get Hudson stripers to hit any of my productive lures. I might need to give up and just fish bloodworms like everyone else.

Does anyone have luck trolling this time of the year in the Hudson? Many other areas of the country are catching stripers on umbrella rigs, tandem rigs, or large crankbaits (stretch 25/x-rap/daiwa SP).

all of those lures are good providing there is herring in the area, look up http://www.tmancustomtackle.comusually posts ads on this site, they have a good short video of using Tubes and a very unique keel weight system I think you"d be very interested in, compact and interchangeable, I"M thinking of getting this system. ps. the Diawa lures have very bad hooks, recommended that you change them or lose fish due to straightening.

Hey FyshhTrap,

I've got Tman striper tubes and the weighted keel. They are a great trolling lure for the kayak. I want to try them more on the boat too. I ran some of them last year and caught some decent schoolies (only in CT though). Ran a tube two trips over some productive looking Hudson spots around Kingston with good marks and had no takers.

My only complaint is that they aren't perfectly weedless, especially if you are running them around structure. They snag really easily. So it is better if you are running just a single rod and can constantly adjust it. It should be fine running higher in the water column, but maybe not as productive.

Ian
