Photo recap of last week (cold water species)

Quick photo recap of the last week:

Meghan got her first Striper!

I got my first Striper on fly!

Meghan beat her first couple with a 20" new PB!

Meghan, the dog, and I went out for a quick togging trip and ran out of bait in 2 hours!

Optimus likes to guard the boat from the fish!

I was a little busy with the fish biting, but Meghan got a shot of her keeper

All released to fight another day!

Fall Toggin

With the winds howling and the temperatures plummeting I haven't had an opportunity to get out and fish. I was fortunate enough to take Meghan to the Marine Corps Ball, but on Monday with a favorable forecast I knew i would fish. I got a call from Lee who said he had bait for tog so while I was still groggy from a red eye flight I said I'll be there. We really do have an addiction.

Lee is really good at togging and he smoked me from the get go. I was skunked and Kayak Kevin shows up and caches one before I did.. I was almost ready to paddle the three miles back to land   but I decided to find my own spot. The first set of pilings yeilded nothing, but the next set was so good we all were able to fish and land quality tautog. most fish were between 18-20 inches. We quickly had a 4 man limit after Tex showed up and were throwing back 20 inch fish. Really to the dismay of a few boaters we were catching and releasing togs with the majority over 18 inches, what a great day! check out more on

Drumming and some Backyard Bass

I have been  trying to learn to bass fish since I just moved onto a lake the past couple weeks, so far so good. The Drum fishing is winding down so I'll start to focus on other fish the next few months as fall begins to turn to winter.  

 Biggest Drum I have ever seen, 57.5"

Also the saddest looking drum ever!

 I look like a fool in this photo but it just shows how big this girl really was, I am 5'10" and weigh close to 200lbs.
