Not that the season is open yet but I know a few guys who went out in Haverstraw and got over 30 bass in the last few days.

Went out april 1st in croton. Caught a couple schoolies from 630 to 9 but than the wind kicked up and we left around 11 with about 5 fish landed. My buddy has gone out twice in front of dennings. One day he caught 20 plus fish, biggest was 23 inches. Bloodworms. He went out again today and caught around 15 he said during the morning run.

Dropped the kayak in and fished from bannermans up past denning and caught 3 schoolies biggest 21 inch. Water temp was around 46-48 degrees. From 30-10 ft deep. Water was pretty rough. Marked lots of fish with some bigger ones in the mix. Same on Newburgh side . 4/5/20

Been out a bunch since opening day. Nothing above 21" yet. All on bloods. No interest in herring chunk yet. Most action on outgoing tide. Fishing from shore between beacon and new hamburg area.

Me and a friend fished from shore yesterday and got fifteen schoolies. Getting a little bigger as the waters warming up. Biggest was 25" but an average around 21". Got a surprise run from a 33" 12lb carp on a blood. That was a first. First few hours with outgoing tide we couldn't keep up with our poles. As soon as tide turned bite turned to only small cats and disappointed to see my first perch of the season. Overall great day. Trying to figure out how to download a picture.

Went out with my boys for a few hours and had the day of our lives. Landed 80 stripers, lost atleast a dozen close to the boat. Best fish caught by my oldest son. Boys were so happy and i was so happy for them.

Was at the poestenkill yesterday around 4. You could see them in the water but almost impossible to land one. Managed to get lucky and get 1 in an hour and a half.

Great to see people still hookin up on some good fish during these times.

Excuse me if this is a bit off topic, but anyone know any bait shops near the lower hudson (tappan zee-ish) that are open and selling bloods?

Thanks!

Well...we got an early season start last Wednesday and the Striper are here in force. We saw lots of Striper on the sonar traveling north although the bite was a bit slow. Last Wed the west wind caused a west to east drift in NB Bay so it was hard to stay in the lines where the fish were traveling but we ended up with 4. Sat was crappy so we stayed home but yesterday started out nice. We fished Milton and got 2 until the 30mph winds from the South kicked again making it hard to present the bait....there were tons of fish but they would not bite. It was probably some of the roughest conditions in the river I have seen in a while. Water temp was 49.7 degrees. At least we are on the boards and the fishing has begun.

Finally got out with a bit of a late start Sunday battling the wind and trying to keep the bait where we wanted it. Lots of marks from Whites up to the stacks, mainly on the west side of the river. Managed 2 fish for the short afternoon. Just happy to get out in the fresh air.
