    Default 25-30 Tautogs at CHSP - Oct 15, 2016

    I couldn't believe there were only 4 kayakers on calm Saturday, Oct 15, 2016. I caught 25 - 30 tautogs at the Inner Wall.
    I checked. Everyone had only one keeper tog at 17-18 ".

    Water Temp : 59 - 64 F.
    We were wearing waders because of the cold air temp, 45 - 65 F

    It will be a blast next weekend.

    Way to catch em Joe. There were probably no kayakers there because that place has stunk for the past few years!

    Do you ever keep the eels?

    I want to keep one for the smoker but haven't caught one in years now. Not that I'm targeting them or anything.

    Nice! Winds for next weekend so far look terrible. I'm hoping that will change!

    No. Eels intimidate me.

    Are you definitely fishing this weekend ? I'm going to be down in Lewes but with the wind I was thinking of leaving the yak home.

    Nice Joe! I fished there Thursday and caught many shorts and huge toad fish... The biggest I could manage was only 14.5" Hopefully it gets better

    Ryan,
    I think togs started biting. I was fishing in very shallow water. But the three new cracks I caught togs were very narrow and deep (2.5 -3.5' deep). I gave up about 12 rigs because I couldn't bring the togs out of the crack. The togs I couldn't pull out of the cracks were big.

    Sheepshead in IRI? The water must be warm still.

    Regarding Top water temp at CHSP (my record):
    Oct 21, 2015 - 54-58F
    Nov 2, 2014 - 60F

    The water temp usually dropped by 3-4 F a week this time a year. So I think the water temp at CHSP on Oct 22 will be 56 -61 F which is good for togging.
