It is very rare that we will cancel a trip due to too adverse of conditions on the Hudson River. This is important when you are booking in advance and have made the necessary prior arrangements. Boat size does matter when it comes to comfort and safety for you and your family while on a Hudson River fishing charter!

Hudson River Striper Fishing Charters

Every year just before the fishing begins to get hot on Lake Ontario, Hudson River fishing charters for striped bass can be found  chasing giant schools of stripers. Sea Bass move into the Hudson River in Eastern New York on their annual spawning run. Luckily, this coincides with anglers’ awakening from their long winter indoor hibernation. When you put these two together, the action can be as hot as gasoline on fire! One of the most eagerly awaited runs each year is that of the Hudson River striped bass, and one of the best places in the Northeast to target these fish is the Hudson River with Ace Charters.

About The Hudson River

The Hudson River begins in the Adirondack Mountains and flows south some 300 miles through eastern New York. The river passes through some beautiful countryside, including the Catskill Mountains, the Taconic Mountains, and the scenic Hudson River Valley. Much of the southern portion of the river is brackish, part of an estuary. The Hudson is affected by the ocean tides as far north as Troy . The river empties into Upper New York Bay at the point where New York and New Jersey meet. The Hudson is popular with a variety of outdoorsmen, including boaters, sailors, yachtsmen, and anglers. Ace Charters is located in one of perhaps the best striper fishing locations on the Hudson river for catching both quantity and quality of breeding class sea run stripers. Our Hudson River Striper charters are run out of Coeyman’s Landing Marina about 10 miles south of Albany, NY.

A new state record was caught in May of 2014 weighing 60 lbs. by a solo angler fishing out of his personal boat. You can read about it here.  The previous  New York state record striped bass was pulled from the Hudson River on May 9, 2007. The big female tipped the scales at 55 pounds, 6 ounces. Landed by Ian Kiraly, the record striper measured 49 3/8 inches in length and had a girth of 32 inches. That’s not the only giant striper that has been taken from the Hudson River. In 2003, a 55-pound striped bass was caught. In 2000, a striped bass weighing 54 pounds, 6 ounces was landed from shore. Fortunately for fishermen, the Hudson still has some monsters lurking in its depths.
