  1. catch of the day right here haha, was pretty big as far as bullhead catfish go. I was going to try to get the 10 different species skillful angler ...more award again this year, but I spent a lot of my months targeting lake trout and not landing one big enough. I'm at 6 with this species and less than 2 month left so not looking good. I've checked off: summer fluke, crappie, smallmouth bass, black seabass, walleye, and bullhead catfish.... potential targets include n.pike, hybrid striper, ll salmon, sunfish, y. perch, tautog, striped bass, etc....i just need 4 of them hahaha

  2. here's another nice one that chomped on the new jigs...took me about an hour to get my tog jigging touch back from last year, but i guess that's what happens ...more when there is a short amount of time and only a few chances to catch this amazing species!

    Tautog with a green crab camo jig

    1. And had to release him
  3. The day was a lot windier than forecasted and much colder. We tried for the stripers first and I managed 1 short at 23 inches. We moved on to bottom fishing and ...more did pretty good with the Tog. The bite slowed down so we tried some squid and caught four keepers. After we filled our three fish limit Chris hooked and landed several nice Tog and lost a few monsters snapping 50# test line on the reef. We still went home with some nice filets for dinner. John again could not catch a keeper. I filled his limit for him.

    Tautog and Black Sea Bass with a Jigs and Crabs

    1. hahaha yeah, you're savage!
    2. I think John had two keeper Seabass or at least thats what he said. Did you see his face when he asked to take a picture of the Tog? I said what Tog you didnt ...more catch any keepers. Lol
    3. Poor John!!!!! You're a good friend for filling his limit不不不不不不

    4. Their is so much bait in there it's surprising they are skinny. I think the water temp shut them down, this rain we had lowered the water temp considerably
