Those seeking stripers in the Hudson River today had to deal with a current of over 3 knots which required a 20-ounce sinker just to hit bottom. However, in order to drift an eel Dave Lilly had to power in reverse all morning as they picked five stripers from 32 to 36 inches.Lilly, who didn’t see any bass caught on boats not reversing, also noted the the bass were all in perfect shape, and didn’t look like typical Hudson stripers.

The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported another good day of jigging for bluefish from 4 to 10 pounds while also adding little tunny and porgies while releasing sea bass that aren’t legal until Oct. 8.
