Location: Hudson, Beacon Dock
Time/Tide: 7-9:30 AM/ Low Tide around 6:50 AM
The Hero of the Hudson, 1A to Captain Sully’s 1B, trekked 60 miles up the Hudson targeting brute 10-15 lb Channel Cat slobs on White Perch chunks…but ultimately had to settle for an unbrutely 1 lber caught on the worm set up. The chunks went completely untouched, while Baby Stripers and gaggles of Perch rounded out the catch on the worms.
Location: Fishkill Creek
Time: 10 AMish-12:30 PMish
**ID Correction 10/19/16**This was Common Shiner, not Spottail Shiner
Fishkill Creek lived up to it’s name, as mass fish deaths are the only explanation for the dead waters of the creek on this day. Freshy Berkowitz of the Fishkill Lord Freshy Jackson did manage a new creature here, as a school of small
Spottail Common Shiners were encountered, but otherwise the action was minimal. The waters were deeper and more fishy here then at the Saw Mill but just not much was around it seemed. Fishkill Creek marks the 3rd Hudson Tributary paid homage to by the Freshy Wonder.
Spottail Common Shiners (Fresh #18), Golden Shiners, Sunnies
