Marked some herring on the ff in downtown Albany today, wouldn't hit. Water murky and 44 deg. Cat on a sabiki with a worm, one white perch on a worm that later sacrificed its life in a vain pursuit of something bigger.
Tried jigging the esopus yesterday and today, came up empty both times. I had a few following the stoolie but they wouldn't touch my sabiki. Watched a hawk grab a herring out of the creek tho which was pretty badass. Looks like I'll be trout fishing this weekend...
Fished around HH today, many fish on the ff but no bites. Nothing followed a stoolie. Some of the fish icons on the ff were the medium to large size, probably shad or stripers. One foot visibility, 45 degrees. Two cats on worms. Eagle above the nest directly opposite the park. Cormorants diving.
good to see you today old blue.we left about 3 hrs. later.we tried for more herring but tide ripping out.we got the 5 herring no takers on the stripers but as mentioned was very happy to see some herring from the river!!
