All it took was a good couple days of solid northeast winds to get the fall fishing cranked up. Seabass fishing offshore has been good and may remain for a few weeks yet. Tog fishing has picked up close to home and should do nothing but improve as the water temperatures cool off. As the water temperatures cools we should begin to see a few stripers in the mix before long. We will be fishing through early January with our heated cabin for both Tog and Stripers.
Robert Burkett and friends had a fair catch seabass along with a few nice tog mixed in up to 8.5lbs caught by yours truly. Following the noreaster Norbert Mueller and family had a good day of wreck fishing bringing home a nice mixed bag of seabass, tog, and porgies. Still not sure the water clarity would be to the liking of the tog in the bay Karl Reed family and friends joined us for a day of ocean wreck fishing. Things proved tough in the inshore ocean wreck but they did provide us with some tog, croakers, seabass, and porgies. With a nice weather day following we headed offshore
to do some wreck fishing with the folks from the goodwill fishing club. We were not let down as the offshore wrecks provided excellent action all day with a good catch of seabass, tog, bluefish, triggerfish, and porgies.
The following morning we opted to stay close to home and try some tog fishing. Sam Whitehead and friends started off with a bang harvesting fish up to 7.5 lbs but mother nature had other plans for us the rest of the day and made anchoring conditions less than favorable to finish off a limit of tog for the guys who had to settle for a good catch. The following day we were joined by and all star crew of tog fisherman. Fishing several different pieces of structure catching a few off each piece they had a near limit catch of real pretty tog including a 9.5lb tog for Alex Levantowsky
which is currently third place in the Lewes Harbor Tog tournament. Several other nice fish came over the rail including a 9.4lb tog for Mike Junk and a 8.5lb tog for William Levantowsky. We would also like to congratulate William Levantowsky who's 13 lb tog caught and released aboard the Grizzly is now the International Game Fish Association Jr. World Record.
