A NEW YORK STATE RECORD STRIPED BASS, Featured

Written by

A 60 lb Striped Bass, for sure a New York State Record, was caught on May 14, 2014 at 9;30 AM by Eric Lester fo Goshon, NY.

 
Eric was fishing by himself just south of the I84 Bridge, Newburgh/Beacon Bridge in thirty feet of water, drifting a blood worm at 15 feet. The huge fish just grabbed his bait an took off.  It took Eric a half hour to tire the fish out, bring him along side his boat where he reached down, grabbed the huge fish behind his gill and hoisted him aboard.
 
Upon bringing him in to Riverfront Marina, in Newburgh, the dockmasters, Jamie and luanne, brought out a dock cart, broght the fish into shore and filled the cart with ice from Billy Joe's Restaurant.
 
I was called and got to Newburgh in 20 minutes from Peekskill.  We found a scale that was certified at Reliable Recycling on Williams St., In Newburgh.
 
After the official weghin, Eric brought the fish home.  He is having a taxidermist take care of the new record for all to see.
 
Congradulations to Eric Lester, I am sure there are bigger stripers in the Hudson River.

THE STRIPED BASS ARE ALL OVER HAVERSTRAW BAY Featured

Written by

The Hudson River Striped Bass Derby will be on Friday,Saturday and Sunday April 26 and 27th, 2014.

Two great locations to weigh in your stripers, remember an extra pound for any striper released alive.
Go to http://www.stripedbassderby.com
To register and view all the great prizes.

The restrictions in place in and around the Tappan Zee Bridge are going to a problem this year.

Here is a solution to the problem that would not take a week to solve.
Digging out the  old channel that used to lead form the main channel to Piermont in front of Corranetta's Marina.
It is far enough away from the TZ Bridge Contstruction to allow free and easy access to Piermont Marina''s !
