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
