BIGGEST Striped Bass I've ever seen Striper Fishing Hudson River NY NJ

BIGGEST Striped Bass I've ever seen Striper Fishing Hudson River NY NJ

PB Cow Striper!! Mark & I took a trip to meet up with a his friend to catch some migrating fall striper. I’ve caught some nice striped bass in my life but never a true Cow. The first night when we got there it happened. We were live lining eels in the Hudson River. The fish were following schools of bunker but eels are like candy to striped bass. Unfortunately I don’t have any footage of the epic battle with the cow. The camera turned on then turned off due to low battery. This video is the rest of our fishing trip. A cold front hit us after the epic first night, but we still managed to get a few fish to bite. I will never forget this trip.

    My father in law bank fishes for striped in an fresh water in land lake in GA. He fishes in late winter from the bank. He’s got a couple 20+ pounders under his belt. Good time and good eating!

    Its crazy how that Hudson River stock is so strong now, while the Delaware Bay stock is non existent, used to be the opposite

  7. EldarDur on July 3, 2022 at 2:35 am

  40. The No Good Niks on July 3, 2022 at 3:13 am

    Cool big rough water equals big fish. Looks like fun

  41. John Stevens on July 3, 2022 at 3:13 am

    Awesome trip Kurt! What a great experience with Lady Liberty looking over your shoulder too! That St Croix rod has done you well! Good call on recognizing that the fish wanted a more active lure as well as the bigger profile!
    I enjoy your videos so much Kurt, thank you for sharing!

  42. Clayton County History Hound on July 3, 2022 at 3:14 am

    Wow, those are some pigs. The picture with Liberty in the background is awesome. Thanks for sharing and take care. ✌
