stripers are great eating but a key thing to do with them is to cut out all the red meat and you got yourself a good meal with fried hushpuppies and coleslaw

sometimes if it is a big striper ill even slice the filets in two making them a little bit thinner

joel the signman I went today the wind was whipping again so i went to a back cove i know.i got 4 decent catfish,they are swimming in my tub right now.Ill fillet them tomorrow.i also got a bunch of white perch .filleted them up and rolled em in cornmeal and fried em up in bacon grease made some hush puppies and a big salad.No striper's today either.Ill get into yet.I just volunteered with the DEC to do fish surveys of stripped bass and shad /herring.Im hoping to get a job with the DEC once im all better.I figure a little volunteer work will look good on the resume

joel the signman clams are great for the surf/ocean .right now they are in the hudson ,sandworms and bloodworms are the preferred food source right a few weeks the herring and shad will also make the run up the river to spawn thats when things get HOT.i GOT EVERY LURE OUT THERE FOR STRIPERS .i USED TO BE A SURF "RAT" SPENT MANY days and nights chasing those fish all over NY.I got a great book if your interested in reading it over your can pm me.

joel the signman i have never caught a walleye but those Lindler brothers make it look like fun

Hunting Man Too early for me but a few walleye stream fishermen are starting to fling some dollflies. Need that water temp to reach the magic 40*-42*. I did move the boat into the garage to start cleaning it up and get ready. For those who don't know Lake Erie is a great walleye lake, maybe the best. Last year we saw a banner year much like the mid 80's when you could limit out in an hour or two. These are not small fish either, two to four pounds average, some much bigger. During summer you can get some smaller fish but for good eating I like 17"-22" spring fish. Lets see now I think I have several bags of batter mix in the freezer.
