Tog fishing is still the best we have to offer. We have captured the first of our seabass which should get even better in the next week or two. The migration of black drum fish is right on time with several schools of them being seen on the surface throughout the Bay. We should begin catching the drum this week. Flounder have even made an appearance on some inshore snags and with the smaller size limits we should be able to put together some good catches of these flatfish this summer and fall. Striper fishing has been a bust in the lower bay lately.
We finally got a stretch of nice weather and we made the most of it. Charlie Perkins and friends went for the sure bet and harvested a limit of tog to seven pounds. Then looked for a couple of hours for some stripers with no luck. Jim Kamalski and friends joined us next and we headed up the bay for some tog fishing. It took us a little while but we got them going and harvested a limit including a 10 lb 4 oz tog for Scott Schockley. A big surprise for the day was the fact that we caught 3 flounder that we would have kept after May 11 under the new regulations while tog fishing as well. With a limit in the bag we went looking for a drum fish but found our area was completely covered up with commercial gill nets targeting drum fish as well. Steve Chrisholm and friends also opted for the tog fishing and were off to a good start when they shut off. They did go home with a good catch of tog including a 10 lb 8 oz fish for Steve himself.
Next, we headed offshore looking for the arrival of the first seabass. Our crew of high liners were on them and had 11 keepers in the bucket a piece along with 5 codfish to sweeten the pot as well. After the third wreck we headed back toward shore and caught a limit of tog to finish the day. Big fish of the day awards went to Sam Green with a 4 lb seabass and Alex Levantowsky with a 9 lb codfish.
