A NEW YORK STATE RECORD STRIPED BASS,

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 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 !

THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN

The 257 people that signed the Boating oOn the Hudson River petition to preserve the Ossining Baot and Canoe club on our Face book page are 

just the beginning! the boating community holds a long-standing love of everything tht is traditional about this lovely old building located ont eh Ossinig waterfront.  More

THIS SHOULD BE THE YEAR WE BRING CHILDREN BACK TO THE HUDSON RIVER, IN SAILING, FISHING, SWIMMING,  BOATING, YACHT CLUBS,  BOAT CLUBS, MARINAS….ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT WE LOVE ABOUT THE HUDSON RIVER, ANY EVENTS, HAPPENINGS, RESTAURANTS MUST INCLUDE CHILDREN AS THE FOCUS.  

WITHOUT YOUNG PEOPLE WE HAVE LOST THE HUDSON RIVER!

 "An aware parent loves all children he or she interacts with - for you are a caretaker for those moments in time."
 "The soul is healed by being with children."
"If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children."
 
"No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure."
 
"Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them."
 
"Children are our most valuable resource."
 
Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa

"Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."

 "There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children."
 
"Why is it that a child's death amounts to a tragedy, but the death of millions is merely a statistic?"
 
Mignon McLaughlin, journalist and author

"Only where children gather is there any real chance of fun."

 "If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God!"
 
"Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right to life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold."
 
"Hugs can do great amounts of good, especially for children."
 
"A person's a person, no matter how small."
 
"Every child you encounter is a divine appointment."
 
"I continue to believe that if children are given the necessary tools to succeed, they will succeed beyond their wildest dreams!"
 

"Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see."

 
Ray L. Wilbur, third president of Stanford University

"The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation."

 
Bono, lead singer of U2

"God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both their lives. God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war. God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them."

 "To me, a faith in Jesus Christ that is not aligned with the poor ... it's nothing."
 "There is enough in the world for everyone's need, but not for everyone's greed."
 
Mohandas Gandhi, political and spiritual leader in India

"There are people in the world so hungry that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread."

 "Nothing that you have not given away will ever truly be yours."
"The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.""When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed."
"It's the greatest poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."
 "You can't comfort the afflicted without afflicting the comfortable."
 "Americans are blessed with great plenty; we are a generous people and we have a moral obligation to assist those who are suffering from poverty, disease, war and famine."
"The Bible insists that the best test of a nation's righteousness is how it treats the poorest and most vulnerable in its midst."
 "The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."
"There's more to doing good than hating evil."
 "I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solutions they will be moved to act."
 

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing."

"For the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, Do all the good you can, To all the people you can, In all the ways you can, As long as ever you can"Failures are divided into two classes — those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought.""The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But ... the good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?'"
 "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
 
"Be the change that you want to see in the world."
 "The price of greatness is responsibility."
