The stripers busted open the past week, fish in the 30 lb range hitting up in Kingston NY on the Hudson some 60 miles north of TZ bridge , south off Sandy hook both inshore and off-shore going crazy also along the south shore of Long Island from Breezy towards Montauk Inside in Long Island sound are busting also. Waiting for the tuna to start running and the swords may even try for tile fish this year...waiting for new boat to come in 3-4 weeks . Got a few friends boats to use , out the other day and banged some 15 of them ranged from 4 lb up to 36-7 lbs. A few cows were caught herd over the radio over the 40 lbs. Went home with a small one just enough for a good fish dinner few beers and some good laughs.

Yes, the crappie are biting and I'm catching some large bream (AKA: bluegill, sunfish, perch), big enough to eat, off the dock.
Some SOB not only cut my trotline last Friday, but stole it as well.

Gotta go catch a yellowcat/flathead for a church fish fry. Hope to post a picture or two.:troll:

Dang Ruffian, I didn't know cows were so small up your way. Here in The Republic we catch them with rope, then work them or slaughter them.

Heck, a full grown cow's head down here will weigh in at 40 lbs or so by itself; use 'em to make barbacoa with.:sofa:

olyeller,
Big stripe bass will reach into the 70 lbs, they are cows and are too soft to eat. You want the 10-20 lb are ideal eating.. Anyway some FLUKE are showing up now and that's some great eating. Water starting to warm up coming up from the mid 50's. between 57-into the low 60's depending on the tide.
