Dinosaurs of the Hudson River Featured

Written by

At Certain times of the year there are strange, huge fish that visit the Hudson River in large numbers.

 
Many are here throughout the year, however the increase in numbers is 
caused by the spawning sturgeon that lay their eggs on the rocky bottom of certain parts of the Hudson River.
 
Riverman knew when the sturgeon had arrived and sought this prize of prizes for the eggs or caviar that they provided. MORE....

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.
