We continued to see spring limits of tog right up to the spring closure date of May 12. The black drum fish have finally begun to bite which is perfect timing. With any luck we should see some stripers with the drum as well. There are still plenty of post spawn stripers headed both down the bay and up the coast. Seabass continue to be caught in good numbers in the ocean as well.
Sean Simms and friends had a quick limit of tog up to 7lb 12 oz for Sean himself before heading up the bay to soak some clams. We caught plenty of smooth dog sharks harvesting a few for the table as well but didn't get a drum bite. Next, we had Mike Foltz and friends on a rainy day. With everyone dressed for the weather we harvested a limit of tog to seven pounds and went to soak some clams. We caught our fair share of smooth dog sharks and our first drum of the season.
Jeff Lauer and family joined us next and put a quick limit of tog in the box. Hearing good reports of stripers on the surf from the day prior we gave it a try for a while. We pulled the hooks out of one and went looking but the swell on Hens and chickens shoal was too big so we went up the bay. Tim and Terry Lauer quickly put two drum fish in the boat up to 41lbs along with several smooth dog sharks. Jeff Lauer and crew were back at it the following morning harvesting another limit of tog. Once again we ventured up the bay and harvested three nice drum fish along with several smooth dog sharks.
The black drum fishing is just beginning and the bigger fish should start biting any day now. Last year we harvested fish up to 91lbs and released one even bigger. Thresher shark/seabass combo trips are an option anytime after memorial day as well.
