Striped Bass Arrived Early in the Hudson River

”For New York State anglers, spring means the arrival of striped bass in the Hudson River, plus the April 1 openings for both trout and flounder...those stripers arrived about three weeks early.”


Older Outboards and Ethanol-Laced Fuels

”According to a recent report in The Fishing Wire, ever since E10 gasoline (gas containing 10 percent ethanol) became widely available several years ago, the nation's largest recreational boat owners group, BoatUS, has received hundreds of calls and emails complaining about boat engine problems. The majority of complaints concern older outboard motors, those made before about 1990. BoatUS' Seaworthy magazine asked Mercury Marine's Ed Alyanak and Frank Kelley, who between them have over 60 years of experience, to find out what's made these decades-old outboards more susceptible to ethanol's well-known problems and what owners can do.”
