    Default Chsp tog nursery

    Fished chsp and caught many many short tog with only one 16" keeper and an 8" Bergall. I fished the inner wall with shrimp and blue crab for bait. I had planned to go to the outer, but the steady bite at the inner kept me there even though the fish were small...
    Bummer of the day was when I hooked up with something substantially bigger and lost it half way up. It was not biting like a tog and not fighting like one either it kind of just barely nibbled at the bait and then just sat there. I'm thinking possibly a big flounder?

    Nice Shady, I've been wanting to get a nice tog. So far I have caught 3 little ones on jigging spoons fishing for other things. Were you on the inside or the outside? I am hoping to hit Chsp next week. If you go again I wouldn't mind meeting up with you.

    Is the cunner on the plate? Both are good, but I prefer the taste of the tog.

    Thinking of fishing there this weekend, but the winds may be too high. Thanks for the report.

    I was on the outside. That may be my tog trip for the year, its just so dang expensive between bait, gas, jigs, and park fee, unless reports start improving on keepers...

    Yea, I fried the Cunner whole in butter. It was a slow day on putting meat in the cooler, so he went in too...

    At least you brought home something to eat!

    I usually do best finding Asian crabs by flipping rocks below the median tide line. You would think at locations where they are present they'd be under every rock along the area, but they aren't. I have a few spots I find them regularly if the tide is right, but if I go to a pile of rocks 20 ft away I can't hardly find any. I hear the shallow water around Cape is a good spot for finding Jonah crabs under the lights.
