I'm going through bait withdrawal in Greene County. I've caught 4 in the past 4 days ...even with a 50' gill net.

nothing like money off fellow fishermen. Just saying.
This is capitalism in the USA and acceptable. I'd rather pay $4 for a live herring than sit in the river all day early season not fishing for striper.

I'll be checking out down around Catskill this week...........boats are hitting the water. Castleton and Poety have been real slow with the cold....nothing in the side streams where we usually see tons but its still cold. The herring seemed to have retreated to the channel.

After I filled a garbage bag with trash left by some A-Holes over the weekend, I tossed the stoolie around for an hour after work today. Main river near Kingston. Netted 2. Last week I was netting my limit in 25 minutes. It seems the cold nights have slowed them down or that first school has moved on. Hopefully warmer weather will turn them back on this week. Tight lines and stay safe

Spent 30 min or so at the poesty today (around 3:30). I donated a few sabiki to the creek bottom, and cleaned up a bag of trash, but no herring. The guys I talked to also said the same thing.
Ditto. Zero movement in the poesty today.

Speaking of donating sabikis, anyone have a good website to buy bulk rigs? Please DM me rather than clogging this post. Thanks!

Fished all day from the port of Albany to the dam. Fished creeks main river different depths etc.. Marked tons of small fish and Tons of cormorants but caught no herring. Did catch a small mouth on a sabiki in the Poesty this morning. Boated about 5 catfish from frozen herring. Back out Saturday!
