One lonely Tautog (The Inner Wall at CHSP, DE – Apr 2, 2017)
Someone has to fish first for the year at the Inner Wall.
I fished the Inner Wall off CHSP (Cape Henlopen State Park), DE for tautog. It was the first trip to DE this year. I didn’t expect much action because the water temp just came up to 46 F for 2 days.
The NW wind at 10 knots wasn’t good for the Inner Wall fishing at all. Though the wind was supposed to subside in the afternoon.
It was hard to fish due to the waves. I lost 6 rigs - it wasn't that bad considering the waves.
I had only 4 bites all day. One bite wasn’t a tautog bite. I missed 2 tautog bites, then I landed a 14” tautog.
The wind stopped blowing, and the water was dead calm when I had to stop fishing.
I think the next weekend will be good for togging as long as the weather permits.

Fish like there's no tomorrow.
