Capt. Mike was pleased to report a good day of local togging. There were some really hefty tog today on the boat with the biggest fish of around 12 lbs not in the pool and two fish in the ten pound range that duked it out for the money. A handful of other big tog in the 7-8 lb range as well. There were at least a few limit catches and a good number of anglers who walked away with several nice tog apiece. A few just keeper sea bass mixed in as well as plenty of short sea bass and short togs to keep anglers quite busy at the rail. A few pics provided today courtesy Capt. Mike. Next tog trip will set sail tomorrow morning at 6 am aboard the Admiral Frances.
Tomorrow looks like a great day weather wise to go out after sea bass/cod and offshore porgies as well with the Lady Frances ready to set sail at 7am with Capt. Rich at the helm.
Roger reported the sea bass and scup were cooperative today on the Lady Frances. Just a couple of cod today with the best just a shade under ten pounds. Biggest scup around two pounds and biggest sea bass just over 4lbs with plenty of the jumbo category size of 2 lbs or better. Quite a few good size ocean perch as well and hardly any of the unmentionables in fact so few that two hook rigs were not drawing any volume of unwanted attention. There were some sea bass limits today and quite a few anglers who were close. Hi hooks on the scup had upwards to a dozen keepers apiece. Best scores however were once again frequently made with one hook down near or today especially just below the sinker. Tomorrow is a new day and we will be back at it again with the cod fish boat set to sail on the Lady Frances with Capt. Rich at 7am.
