    Has anyone successfully fished eels in the river during the spring run? I know stripers love killing them everywhere else the rest of the year, I've just never heard anything about them being used in the river. I would love nothing more than turning those bait stealing, leader twisting, line...

    Does anyone use eels here during the spring run north of Newburgh? If so do you troll live herring vs stick baits, drift or bottom fish like live herring?
