    Hello everyone, was looking for a little advice on fishing tomorrow. Going to head out later in the afternoon and fish through sunset. I've only made it out 3 times this year with not much luck.

    My girlfriend wants to go there every year in late April or early May. What's a good time of year and general location. She like's the beachfront, but could go in the bays a bit. I do have a 14ft rowboat with outboard, but prefer to not take it the parkway doesn't allow trailers. Any advice...

    I'm currently in the Durham/Freeport area and looking for some advice on spots to fish. I am only 3 miles from 295 so drivings not a major issue. I've tried some striper fishing 2-3 times a few years ago and didn't have much luck/ nor knew what I was doing. I went and picked up some packs of...

    Morning guys. Happy to be a new member. I'm stoked I came across the site! Watching guys pull fish from the beach all weekend really hooked me. Instead of wasting more time and money buying equipment that isnt right for my application, I thought I'd ask the professionals. I always have a...

  14. Hudson River
    I am shore bound this year. I fish the catskill park by port of call and various spots in the creek in town. The river side has one heck of a tide to work against at the park, I think my rig is getting dragged into a big rock and not presenting well. You can fish the creek mouth at the...
  15. Hudson River
    Because I didn't listen to you all right away and had to learn the hard way, I thought I would pass this on the the noobs. (I'm on season 4 and finally getting stripers regularly so I feel for you!) When the pros said to use the smallest sabikis possible you all weren't kidding. I go no bait...

    We are here for a long duration project. Have had good luck with the largemouth, but ready for some stripers. We are storing the boat at Carolina King and wonder if the channel at the end of Jacks Creek has any potential? I have been told to fish the channel between Marion and Moultrie. We...
