November 20, 2017:
Akira over at True World Tackle said the East River remains very good for bass, which is where he had several trips this past week which accounted for good numbers of bass to 21 pounds. Boats are still finding some good trolling in New York Harbor on mojos and spoons. Fishing has also been good off the piers at Hoboken, Exchange Place and Edgewater Park. On the blackfishing front fishing has been good at the Middle Grounds when boats have been able to sail.

    Akira over at True World Tackle said the East River continues to produce bass for him despite the winds and cold weather. Jig-plasticbait combinations are also scoring a lot of mixed size stripers in the lower Hackensack River. Pier fishermen are pulling stripers both day and night on worms and bunker. On the bottom fishing front tog fishing is also on the rise with the cooler water, while sea bass have become the dominate catch for sinkers bouncers as the porgies have started to disappear.

    We started this week's report off with a call to Akira over at True World Tackle who told us he is still finding good striped bass fishing in the East River around 23rd Street. A pair of trips there this past week produced fish to 21 pounds on one trip, while the second trip saw bass to 32 pounds. Akira said most of the bass fishing in New York Harbor has turned to trolling mojos and spoons. Anglers fishing off lower Hudson River piers are into a mix of tog and mixed size stripers mainly on the outgoing water. Sinker bouncers are into good numbers of blackfish and sea bass, while the numbers of porgies are starting to decrease, he said.

    Our first report of the week comes from Akira over at True World Tackle who told us the East River has good all week with keeper and short stripers, along with a few bluefish supplying the fishing. The top spots were around the UN Building, 23rd Street and the area around the 35 Can. Akira said he fished the Mud Buoy this past week and found a good pick of porgies, sea bass and a few tog. Blackfish are also being caught off the rocks around the Verrazano Bridge. Boats fishing the inshore waters are finding a mix of albacore, blues and some striped bass. Anglers fishing off piers along the lower Hudson at Statue of Liberty, Hudson Park, Hoboken and Exchange Place are into a mix of blues, occasional stripers and a few sea bass and porgies.

    Akira at True World Tackle was fishing around the Statue of Liberty and said he had stripers to 24 pounds. The better fishing has been in the East River, Robins Reef, down from the Verrazano Bridge and around the Statute of Liberty. Fishing live eels and trolling have been the most productive ways of taking the bass, while a few fish are also being caught on chunks and clams. Some decent numbers of blackfish are also being caught in the same areas, and pier fishermen are seeing a mix of tog, smaller bluefish and occasional stripers. Akira also mentioned that porgy fishing remains solid and now that the sea bass fishing is open a lot more anglers are bottom fishing.
