4/18/21 GTG - Striper Fishing


Recommended Posts

Tried striper fishing for the first time tonight and thanks to@Chef Lending me equipment i got one. Great time with the boys tonight. CrappyIce got a 7lber on the boga grip scale. Chef caught the most. Jerkman caught a few big ones and lost a real nice one. AT even caught a catfish and we had a ton of bites. Lastly, CrappyIce gave us 12-packs of Ruby Reds at the end. Beers, fish, and cigars. Tough night to top!

That’s a good sign, with the forecast next week I think we’ll start catching them up this way.

Nice haul of fish , looks like a great time.  Awesome. Hard to beat that for sure.

Never fished for stripers.  You guys use live bait?  I hear eels work great....

Nice going..... strippers are a lot of fun and put up a good fight. Were you guys fishing the slack to high tide with bloodworms ? The fishing is gonna get better when the big cows start making their way up the Hudson.

I have no clue what we were doing. Worms and Bunker. Casted out as far as you can and let it sit

Fished from about 2 hours before low, into the slack and till about 2 hours before high.... only really stopped because we ran out of bait. We truly crushed with non stop action for 6 hours

Seen a few boats yesterday, but wait another week or so, and you'll be able to walk across the Hudson from boat to boat.

What are the regs in NY this year for Stripers ?  Here in NH the limit was over 32 inches and one fish limit . In MA the limit was 28 inches and a 2 fish limit . Maine regs were one slot limit fish between 22-28 inches and one over 40 inches.

The rules have now changed to the same regs for all 3 states . One fish slot limit over 28 inches to under 35 inches . When bait fishing you must use corrosive circle hooks with non offset barbs .
