  1. Thanks for the advice. It is very helpful. When you say mono that will break before the braid do you mean a lesser rated mono. For example usually it might be 20lb Braid -> 30lb leader where you are saying using 20lb Braid -> 10lb leader?
  2. Thanks for the video. I watched it and headed out last night and this morning. Did see some fish busting not sure what kind unfortunately didn't catch any. I was having trouble feeling when I hit bottom. I feel like I would cast out and then all of a sudden I am caught in some rocks before i know whats happening. I think this might be me having too much slack out. Put in a bulk order of jigheads and paddletails that I won't feel too bad about donating to the river. Thanks everyone for the advice.
  3. Do big fish pass through that late or is it mostly schoolies?
  4. Yeah I am in Astoria. Have been fishing around here and LIC but with no luck yet. Thanks for the advice.
  5. Hello. I recently started fishing the east river from the queens side. The couple times I have been out so far it has been low tide +- 2hours. Where I go I can see/hear fishing coming up and attacking the fish in the shallow water but I have not been able to catch anything. I have been using 4 inch swim shads or one ounce bucktails. I have not been able to catch anything even though I know the fish are there. With it being low tide and everything being more exposed I am finding that I either get caught up in rocks or catch a bunch of seaweed. Does anyone have any tips on what I should be doing? Do I need to get better technique with the bucktails and shads? Switch to topwater/floating lures? Move to a new spot? Thanks.
