Jersey City is engulfed in a blanket of diversity and growth. Moreover, a fast-expanding skyline, a collection of schools, and an integrated transportation system help to make Jersey City a top contender among the cities that line the Hudson River. The Hudson River is a classic boating water spot and provides some of the best striper action. In general, the best bets are the deeper waters in the main river. Any shoal areas are very productive and have good concentrations of fish. If you're looking for a good place to anchor the boat and fish cut bunker or live herring, try the west channel above and below the Kingston-Rhinecliff bridge. It's a top choice for good reason: very large concentrations of stripers are found in this section each year, especially during May.
