  2. The Striper Forum
    Hi guys, Im generally a trout fisherman. Based in NYC and fish up in the Catskills. Recently spoke to a fisherman telling me about how all the fisherman go upstate in October for a big striper run. I think he said maybe Groton or Croton, New York? Is anyone know more about this? Im interested to...

    It's that time of year again...days are getting longer...rivers are locked up with ice,almost torture but, before you know it the cover on the boat will be coming off. I figure the best way to pass the next 10 weeks or so before the season begins is to do a little research to better my odds...

    Hey guys, so I live in Albany and I’m an avid fisherman who’s getting into making YouTube videos. Come the spring Striper run I was wondering if anybody has a boat and would be willing to take an extra person with them? I would help pay for the gas that’s used and provide some food/beer. I’m...

    I have been able to get out and fish 10 times so far this season and it has been one tough season. I have been fishing the Albany/Troy area and the bite has been way off. For the season I have managed 19 fish but those fish have not come easy. I pulled the boat out of the slip this past Friday...

    Though I ended my season a couple weeks ago, it's now official as today I cleaned up the boat and stored my gear. To say that this run was epic would be a complete understatement. I can't think of an outing that I didn't catch something. I was able to put each of my guests on fish. That's rare...

    We have been on the Big Blues lately and it has been a blast on light tackle. using PENN Legion rods paired with Clash reels and 30 pound spiderwire has been the ticket. Using Yo-zuri crystal minnows and surface cruisers (Poppers) has been all that you need to bend the rod. Join us as we still...
  10. Upper Hudson River Striper Club
    Launched from Schodack Island S.P. yesterday afternoon after getting the boat ready for her annual shakedown run. River was cold 42/43 degrees, about a foot of vis, but surprisingly clean of debris. This was the last couple hours of outgoing. I didn't even both jigging for herring, but had some...

    So what does everyone think as to the timing of the striper run this year? I'm thinking that with the extreme lack of snow cover here in Mid-January coupled with a strong El Nino, we're going to see an early run. In fact, I'm starting my annual two week striper vacation a week earlier this year.

    With the mild weather and water temps between 48 and 51, we took a trip out of Manasquan Inlet, NJ and we were covered up with bird life diving on herring and both Bass and Blues feeding! Yes...Bluefish in January! The Simrad NSS-16 was lit up and we had a decent bite for a good portion of the...
  13. Striper Guides & Charters
    Water temps around 53, still a lot of peanuts and adult bunker around, and plenty of short and keeper size Bass around with a few Blues mixed in. We can catch them on the troll but decided to throw top water plugs and weighted shads and the action was outstanding! Some open dates remain in...

    Some pics from the past weekend! Catch and Release and a few for the table!
  15. New Jersey
    We are getting down to the nitty gritty. Recent trips have produced Bass and also large Blues on Spoons and Poppers. Jigs are also working and we have been able to snag and drop on some bunker schools as the water temps are still in the mid to high 50's. See our reports in the Stripers...

    Mr. Moderator, how about an after the run sticky? Cottonwood is flying. Its down to me and the barges.
  18. Hudson River
    Is it just me or does it seem like the big school of bass never made it to Albany area this year ? Sure there's some fish being caught... And I know there's a ton of herring around for food but this year the numbers are way down according to the 30+ ppl I've talked to. I've done great for the...
  19. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I am just looking for an opinion or a review on this reel. The largest model weigh only 17.5 oz and can spool 250 yards of 17lb line. Its much lighter than other reels of the same size, and it has a baitrunner function. Priced for only $80.
  20. Hudson River
    If anyone knows of any boats that get rented out for a month or so during the run PM me. I need to get off the shore this year.
