Fished today with 5 friends; Steve Masten, Bob Fern, Dick Papp, Larry Grimm, and Bailey Tenerovich. Baily had never caught a Tautog, and this is her fishing report for the day.
“Headed out this morning aboard the LIL’ ANGLER II with Capt. Brian and some friends. Although we started off with a bit of cloud cover at 8 am, within an hour or two the skies cleared and gave us some beautiful skies with very little wind and calm water. Hit the first spot and caught nothing but Oystertoad fish despite being directly on structure. After an hour or so of nothing we ventured out to the 14 foot lighthouse hoping for better luck. Captain got us tight up against the lighthouse and we dropped our lines. We used green crabs, clams, and shrimp for a while, popping them down into the rocks and finding a few good holes. Finally!! One of the guys caught the first tog of the day, and we all promptly switched to crab and started reeling in fish. Water temp was 56 and wind was around 15 knots. With such a gorgeous day, and fish in our cooler, I think it's fair to say it was a great time had by all. And I'm very proud to say, I caught my first tog EVER thanks to some good coaching by all the guys. Its turning out to be a great start to the season, and if all goes well, there will be many more days like this to come!!”
