    Deciding to make a homemade bait tank instead of using a bucket where i have to keep changing the water, or the metal cage type where the herring get beat up when a boat or a barge goes by. Also they dont have much room to move, then I have to tie them to something so they dont float away. So...

    Just curious since I have only done the migration once and saw everybody fishing with Herring. I had to resort to cutting a couple dead ones up on the beach. Anyways I get bored just standing there so would rather as usual have one pole out and cast with the other. Is it worth it in...

    With deep regrets Kendall Ward of Wards BT has lost his battle with cancer. Kendall was a great fisherman and resource to our fishing community. I have only know Kendal for about 6 years from his store, but he has always treated me as a friend and always shared his knowledge where the fish are...

    Looking to keep some herring alive overnight at the dock in Coeymans. I have a 24 x 24 inch floating bait pen from Cabelas that I will try but it is a bit small and flimsy (I used to use it off the kayak) and I am doubtful it will work well. Any suggestions for cob-jobbing something with...

    which is better? Frozen: fresh bait frozen, then vacuum packed and frozen; when use, cut open vacuum package and thaw slowly; salted: fresh bait salt cured with non-iodized salt; freeze in package to prevent freezer burn

    Hello all, I am relatively new to striper fishing on lake Cumberland, been at it for about 3 years now with a buddy and just decided to buy a boat and set it up,sooooo I jumped the gun on a bait tank and purchased a 30 gallon insulated keepalive tank and am needing to put a filter on it because...
  13. Surfcasting Central
    I was wondering, Do most surf fisherman cast plug's or soak bait. Do the times that you fish casting or soaking have something to do with it. soaking bait you can do any time, casting plugs seems a.m or p.m. is best. I do both, But favor plug's. Your thoughts.

    Anyone know where live eels can be purchased along the Hudson River? I'm in Dutchess county, but will travel to get them, if need be. Thanks

    Never in all the years that I've striper fished has it been this bad. I've seen plenty of cold snaps slow things down and push the herring deep. This seems to be different. Temperatures are right ...something's fishy.:navy:

    In order to save $ on the cost of braided line, does it make sense, instead of spooling a reel with 300yds. of braid, use 150yds of braid and 150yds of 50# backing.I fish the Hudson River,Albany,N.Y. using Penn bait casters.

    Get there NOW!!! This is the finest large Striper fishing I have personally seen in the past few years. The trout plants have drawn in the big ones and it has been a great bite on the large plugs, AC Plugs, Side Swimmer 250, and BBZ are all working this past week. Fish to 23 lbs. have been taken...

    What's everyone seeing for bait? Mackeral patterns have always worked well in Sept. Mackeral seem to be in short supply lately at the Cape Cod Canal. Not sure is they are getting scarce up there to. I'll be in the Wells/York area in a couple weeks. Thanks for any help.
