  2. I went fishing thinking it was opening day for Fluke the creek I wanted to fish was turning. Brown algae everywhere. I decided to head out into the bay. I found ...more Big Gator Bluefish jumping out of the water. I started to troll and landed this 36 incher. I stopped counting after 24. Arms too tired to catch anymore I head home.

    Tautog with a Crab

    1. idk how far south this species exists but i think only until around north virginia...i could be wrong though
    2. James . 0
      I live in NorthTexas, I make trips down to the gulf sometimes.
    3. where do you live? they get them up and down the north east coast
    4. James . 0
      Nice, would love to fish for them one day!
    5. they are amazing james... all they eat are crabs, lobster, some clam etc. they rarely eat bait fish. the only local fish i like better is probably sea bass. but ...more tog are much stronger and more fun to fight!
    6. James . 0
      Nice catch, wonder how they taste like?
