What’s the best way to catch striped bass on the Hudson river?

Any bass fishing enthusiast that loves nothing more than to sit on the river and fish all day will tell you that the striped bass is abundant in those waters and easy to catch if you know how. They will also tell you that you have to find what is best for you, and I am going to tell you exactly the same thing. There are plenty of hints and tips that will tell you but I will give you two. Firstly, start off by fishing the shore. The smaller striped bass all seem to congregate around rocky outcrops on the shore so it is quite possible to cast your line and catch a few within thirty minutes or so. Fly fishing is good in some areas and will make the experience better for you on the whol. However, if you want a change of scenery then try following the schools of bass into deeper waters via a boat. This is a fantastic way to fish and will guarantee you some of the largest sripers that you will ever see. This experience is fulfilling but is better for those that are a little more experienced. Make sure that you usea lure such as a crankbait or a plastic worm, both of which will glide in the water with great effect. Some also advocate the use of foodstuffs, such as herring chunks. This is also often met with great approval! Of course, where you choose to fish and the bait you choose to use is down to personal choice but try the tips above and you will not go far wrong.
