There hasn’t been too much to report on lately. We’ve made it to the time of year where the weather is more of a story on a regular basis than the fishing is. There are still some rockfish hanging around the route 90 bridges, but the keeper size fish are all outside of our three mile limit. The one species that is being targeted and caught most consistently when the weather cooperates is the tautog, and it was good fishing for them today aboard the Morning Star.
Report from the Morning Star with Captain Monty Hawkins is that the fish chewed great today. They fished an artificial reef and had a full boat limit with fish up to 10.5 pounds. They also tagged and released eight other tog up to 9.5 pounds. It was good fishing.
