    I have jigged herring under the Berkshire spur bridge, but have never tried further south. I know further north up to the dam it gets easier, but how far down can you jig up herring in the river itself?
  2. Hudson River
    Once I get below the Castleton Bridge my ability to jig herring in the main stem of the river seems to drop off. At the risk of being a spot burner, is that just me? Admittedly I don't go down there much compared to the Albany area, but I am just wondering for example: if I tried to jig for...

    Anyone ever use the do-it mold jigging spoon JS-3-A. How did you do? I'm thinking of getting one to help cut the cost due to losing lures to the rocks. Thanks
  6. Chesapeake Bay
    I've been doing pretty good in the last couple weeks in the upper bay, but most of the fish have been between 20" & 30". So I was pleasantly surprised when I hooked up with this fish. I started the evening out trolling for a couple hours but didn't catch anything, so I decided to target some of...
  7. Rods And Custom Rod Building
    Hi, I was interested in suggestions for a rod blank for the cape cod canal. I would use it strictly for jigging 3 oz up to 6 oz. Looking for 10 ft, spinnning, 2 pice setup, and dont want a multi purpose rod. I see alot of people used to reccomend a su 1209 but am not sure if these still exist...
  8. The Striper Forum
    Not sure if this is the proper place to post a striper report, sorry new member. After cancelling most of our striper trips this week do to rough ocean conditions I could not pass up the opportunity to fish on The Chum Box with good friends Mike and Marcos on his 28 Henrique. Left the AH marina...
  9. Hudson River
    Since we don't know which way the Herring ban is going to go, i would like to ask about jigging Stripers ? Anybody ever try that up in the northern parts (north of Newburgh or so) ? I know in the ocean they use big bucktails in the rip. I'm just thinking ahead, maybe try some new tactics ? No...

    Ok i really love to jig whether fluke, bass, blues or anything. I have had plenty of luck jigging up blues but never bass. I use ava 17,27&47 as well as krocs. This may seem like a dumb question but i rather be safe than sorry when jigging bass do i jerk my rod up hard so the jig comes...

    Brian, Danny and I wanted to put a spin on Flounder fishing, at least for us, so we decided to try a technique featured on a local fishing show that really appealed to all three of us, jigging for flounder. We departed Little Creek armed only with artificials and headed to the fourth island...
  12. Cape Cod Canal
    Hey, I just picked up a conventional rig and want to start doing a lot more jigging in the ditch. Looking for advice on soft plastics or technique. Typically I use like a 6" shad (white). I cast upstream (like 45 deg) on enough weight to hit bottom 4-5 times as the current pulls downsteam and...
  13. Boaters Forum
    Is it the speed of the jig related to the bottom, or the speed of the jig in relation to the current thats important? For instance, (using 1.5mph as the optimum speed for the sake of argument) traveling with the current do you need to keep 1.5mph ahead of the current speed or just almost drift...
  14. Striper Guides & Charters
    At the last minute we saw a weather window develop so we wnet into scramble mode. After 100 phone calls and 50 text messages we were set to head to HI for some more jigging. Ashton, Mike, JC, and I decided to head to the 230 rocks and see if we could pick up some BFTs (Black). Started a bit slow...

    I have a bunch of the Garmin BlueChart Vision G2 cards that I don't need (inlaws had no idea what they bought me for Christmas, nice having money I guess) one is for the area of Jacksonville to Key West VU5009R(2 of these) Tampa to New Orleans VUS012R Bermuda VUS028R Jacksonville to Bahamas...
  16. Striper Guides & Charters
    Saw a weather window developing early in the week Hamish, JC, Robert and I decided we would head south to try our luck at jigging. Got a call from "Jet Ski Brian", he had the same idea and we figured we would buddy boat/ski down to Hatteras. Got down there Friday night and made our preps...
  17. The Striper Forum
    I have been interested in trying out butterfly jigging for stripers. Does anyone have any suggestions on size and color? Does anyone regulary fish with these type of jigs? I hear they can be quite deadly.
  18. New Hampshire
    looking for areas to jig for macks in the hampton, plum island area. Any suggestions. This will be my second trip out in my boat. So any help is greatly apperciated. Also any decent striper spots would be a plus, I plan on just trolling and drifting for now outside of the crowds. I have a gps...

    Well I'm back for those that remember me from last year.....haven't done much fishing this year but that's not to say I haven't wanted to.. I went over to Race Point yesterday in my 20' boat... NOAA said SW 5-10 kt seas 1 foot or less.... yeah right! On the way back across the bay at about...
  20. Massachusetts
    question though I'm sure it's already been answered somewhere: is jigging done while at a trolling speed or on a slow drift? Can it be done both ways? and why wire? Seems everyone uses wire, not lead or anything else for striper jigging... cadicted.gif
