  1. Trolling for Stripers
    New to the boating game here. Was planning to head out this weekend and try to find some macks and live line. I'm not sure yet of the migrating habits of these fish. Anyone catching anything in the Salem MA area? The early bird Stripers are starting to arrive.

    I fish mostly out of Haverstraw south between Croton and the Piermont Pier. Has anyone had success catching live herring around that area. If so how are you doing it? Thanks for any info you can give me.
  3. Hudson River
    I'm just wondering what your bread and butter is when it comes to catching bait. I've only done this a few seasons and I'm still learning a ton each year. For the most part I have caught my bait by jigging in the creeks. This method often times takes longer than I would like but some days are...

    I spent much of the weekend fishing most of the regular spots from shore. Didn't see one fish caught from land. Watched plenty get pulled in by boaters. This is my first year truely striper fishing so maybe that is a regular occurance. Anyone out there catching from shore? Are the fish...

    Anyone catch live herring around the TZ bridge area? I have tried swim baits and spoons but have never had a herring follow or even seen one. Not asking for any spots or anything, just want to know if people are catching them.

    Caught a ton of big Roosterfish with W today, George was thrilled! He kept using some other name, but as you can see from the top picture, it was obviously him :rolleyes:

    Ive seen some herring schools running from the shore at places like castle island, but never close enough to get hits on the sabiki rig. Are there any piers/docks/shorelines in boston with a good history of bait sized mackerel/herring?. I can go any other route to catch them as well, if sabiki...

    Do any of you go out at night or at sundown and are still able to catch mackeral? Do they turn off at night or are they still on the feed? I just have never tried for them at night and will be trying tonight at spots that I know produce during the day. Any info is appreciated, thank you!! -Scott
  11. The Striper Forum
    Anyone have any tips and lessons learned on catching mackerel for striper bait? Personally, I've found that chumming is essential (at least for me) and that sabiki rigs outfish the "Christmas tree" type jigs like nobody's business. I've always used ground fish (since it's available) but heard...

    I know you can catch fish on any day, and at any time, but if you were going to look for the ideal day to spend 4-5 hours on the water for stripers, what would you choose?

    I'm here in southern Maine until Sunday. Been out three times and skunked on each trip. Fished in Wells Harbor - one day on west side and another day on east side. Only saw a couple terns hit the water for a few dives. Hit the mouth of Ogunquit Wed. morning and came up empty. Haven't seen...
  18. Hudson River
    I've been catching small (6"-14") stripers in the Rondout the last couple weeks mostly by accident while targetting other fish, but I've heard that it's possible to catch keeper size and up to 10-15lb fish that stick around through the fall - both in the Hudson and it's tributaries. Does anyone...
