Morning Tog

Our son and his girlfriend are visiting from Michigan. There was some talk about them wanting an early morning fishing trip to see the sunrise over the Chesapeake Bay. This was not that morning. I left the house with everyone asleep. It was a pretty sunrise. I stayed in the bay and was back in for lunch. The tog bite was pretty good. I kept a few, tagged others, and caught one that already had a tag. Maybe, we can try a sunset cruise for the kids.

Halloween Tautog

Caught some tautog in the bay yesterday. Not a hot bite, but steady. Did have something big break me off after a lot of drag pulling. Expect it was a big drum.

Virginia October

Summer is over, everyone should put their boats away. I mean everyone else. I’m fishing. I did some trolling along the beach and fished a bit on one of the reefs in the bay. Cobia are still around. The ribbonfish are abundant. I caught Spanish mackerel up to 5 pounds. In the bay, I caught small tautog and black drum. I tangled with some big reds that I did not catch. The offshore boats are coming in with tuna and flying billfish flags. The coastal wrecks are holding triggerfish, sea bass, and flounder. It is a good time to be fishing.

Staff Day

Today, I took two of my office staff, Tara and Meghan, and their significant others offshore. I have a good staff. OK, they are great but I don’t want it to go to their heads. We chartered the Top Notch Sportfishing Charters . We caught dolphin. We had one billfish encounter that did not stay tight. Beautiful boat, great crew, and a good time on the water. Yesterday, I did a much shorter trip. Broke off some sheepshead and caught a black drum.

Good Day

Ran out and caught a big sheepshead. Came back and ate the sheepshead. The bait got eaten also. There may have been some beer involved. Good day.
