While fishing from shore for Striper bass using bloodsmy buddy caught this 23 lb. freshwater drum. It looked sickly, so they had the DEC come take a look at it.

Many moons ago big drum and some cod were often caught in the river. Noreast has not printed my last two reports, but it’s been the busiest spring in 20 years north of NYC. I’ve released about 60 bass in my last two kayak trips and the temps are right for the really big fish to start passing through. Hopefully this is is sign that the striped bass fishery is rebounding.

My third report from 4-11 was not printed by Noreast, so I’ll get it done here! I released fifty bass yesterday in 4 hours, the majority were sized like the pics, with a few bigger fish. All were safely released. Having the fish stage in my area for over two weeks is very rare, and surely a good sign for the fishery.
