Wasque point, the surrounding beach area and the boardwalk from the parking lot have been severely washed out by Hurricane Irene. We will have to see what happens in the coming weeks before the derby. Please be careful in this area and check it out first during the day at high tide.

Thanks to Bob Clay for this information and the photos he provided.

Albany, NY (August 18, 2011)

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, who is striped bass fishing today, announced he has signed a law to prohibit the taking of striped bass from the Hudson River for commercial purposes, extending a ban that has existed since the 1970s.  
"This law benefits both public health and the vibrant recreational fishing industry that is an important part of the local economies along the Hudson River. I thank Senator Grisanti and Assemblyman Abinanti for sponsoring this legislation," Governor Cuomo said.

Field and Stream had announced late yesterday that they would be following up after reaching Connecticut striper angler Greg Myerson, who, late Thursday while fishing in Long Island Sound, caught a rockfish bigger than the current International Game Fish Association all-time world record.

Myerson's fish is 3 pounds heavier than the current record caught in 1982 by New Jersey's Al McReynolds.

Field and Stream's Joe Cermele finally tracked down Myerson last night, interviewed him, and took more pictures of this remarkable catch.
