Thanks guys! No runs Sunday, and tried scapping almost 2 hours today in Highland & nothing. Only 1 herring on Sunday. It's been slow for everyone, talked to DEC and they said they talked to a few guys that only had 1 herring each, another guy had 6 that took him an hour to scap. Others in Highland have just been using live white perch & chunk without any luck. Going to get up early tmrw while the tide is higher and see if I can get some.

Managed 6 herring. 3:15-9 am, one run, ran close to shore and broke off probably on a sharp rock. Back out tmrw morning.

Does anyone try live eels in the Hudson?  I've only been down there once, and caught a few on catfish rigs while waiting for a striper bite.  Didn't use them since I wasn't sure about legality, but have used them on long island successfully.  Are they legal to use??  If so, do they work?

You are allowed 25 eels per day, 9-14" that can only be used for bait. I know there are guys that drift them out in boats that have luck. Be prepared for some wicked eel knots though lol. Good luck out there.

Beat the eels a bit before casting gino or keep them on ice and they dont knot up.  Dont be afraid to fish them dead but if you do, break the vertabrea for more action.  Eels work all year.  Ive gotten holdovers in March on them.

Fished 4:30-9 AM plenty of herring , one missed run & a fish that broke me off near the rocks. Fished again 4:30-7:45 PM , only managed 3 herring scapping the whole time, one run & drop and something else fooling with one that killed the herring, probably a big channel cat.... Talked to a boater who fished 1-6 PM and got 3 stripers. Slow on herring for everyone and guys fishing with bloods said it was slow as well. Back out tmrw morning.

Fished 3:30-9 AM, netted my herring limit, one run & drop as well as a 23" white cat. My friend went out with some guys drifting live, bloods and artificials near the Esopus Lighthouse and only got 2 30-31"ers. Only marking a few here & there, and apparently none of the other boaters were having much luck.
