The Tugfest Committee for the Town of Esopus is preparing for another Tug Auction and Tugboat Trail. This year our committee is excited to announce the addition of 10 Esopus Meadows Lighthouses and 15 Tugs to our fleet .It was a pleasure to meet friends from Boating on the Hudson at our last event. This year’s auction will be Saturday, September 24th with a rain date of the 25th. Our event will begin at 10:00am and the auction at 3pm at Headless Horseman – Hayrides and Haunted Houses (# 1 Tourist Attraction in U.S. for a Halloween Event).
Picture this; a beautiful, one owner home, with a deepwater dock, (5 feet at extreme low tides and 10 feet at high tide), and calm water out in front at all times! For those of you looking for a piece of paradise, here it is!
During every season there is activity happening in the fresh water creek which passes right by this beautiful home.
In the spring months of April and May, the yellow perch fishing is phenomenal and thousands of spawning herring arrive. At the same time, huge striped bass feed on the herring while getting ready to spawn. The largemouth bass create habitats right under your dock and at the edges of the creek.
Sounds like paradise to me! To someone who is a boater, and a fisherman, with a love of the outdoors; this is a superb place to live.
