Tog fishing is heating up and there have been some real nice stripers up to 34 pounds caught in the mouth of the bay as well. Tog fishing should be good from now thru mid January as long as we can get the right conditions. This early showing of stripers is a hopefully a sign of good things to come this fall and winter.
We scraped our last overnight trip to northeast winds forecasted offshore and lack of tuna. Ray McDonald and family instead did some tog fishing and had a nice day with a fair catch of tog. Congratulations to Ray McDonald Jr. landed a 8 lb 4 oz tog which is currently second place in the Lewes Harbor Tog tournament.
Next we had Alex Levantowsky and crew on board for a sunny 80 degree day and the tog got lockjaw. The highlight of the day was Wayne Bushrods 12 lb 8 oz black drum.
Next we were joined by Jay Lightner and friends on another balmy October day. The tog cooperated just enough to give us a dozen keepers on the day. After loosing four days to the weekends cold front and noreaster we had Dan Clark and friends out for a day of tog fishing. We actually could finally call it tog catching as we wound up with a nice box of keepers and plenty of throw back along with three triggerfish.
We will be tog and striper fishing through mid January so anyone wanting to get out should give us a call.
