Not looking for specific spots but what general areas (Schodack/Troy, etc) are these reports from? Trying to figure out where it is worth giving it a rip this weekend

Had a few runs, landed a 42" on live, outgoing, 15 fow. Water temp 52. Bethlehem area. Bait was easy to get, some were too big, smaller fish couldnt swallow them.

Fished from Albany to Coeymans. Couldn’t get a herring. Super muddy and really strong current. Needed 4 oz to hold the bottom. Marked a bunch but it was nasty. Fished from 615-1400. Water at 51. Empty day. Clarity is terrible. Figures it’s the weekend.

I had to work Saturday and it was far less painful knowing the River was a mess laughing7.gif I did miss my early morning beer shopping at Fidens though.

Fished from 1000-4. Got herring in Albany. Drifted. Anchored. Live. Chunk. Nada. Went down to Schodack and drifted. Nada. Anchored in Coeymans. Nada. Couldn’t find one hungry but marks were good in Albany. Schodack and Coeymans was a LOT less. Herring jumping all day.

Huuuuuge schools passing by all day in Catskill-Athens area. Not interested in feeding though. Maybe they'll turn on up by you.
