This weather pattern has gotten COLD son!  And it looks to stay that way for a little while.  Thankfully there are still some sea bass snapping and the party boats are starting to catch a few more tautog as well.  We’re able to keep them this year too with open season through the winter.

I was surprised, but pleasantly to get a couple of fishing reports today from Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star and Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler.

Hi Scott, Weatherman said NW 10 to 15 switching to West and falling out some.. 
How about 15 to 25? Mostly 23.. We got a mini butt kicking today! 
But caught fish.. Fellow asked if we were seeing any tog mixed with sea bass. “Naw! Just sea bass,” I said. 
So, of course, next fish over the rail was a tog. It ate squid. Then a couple others. No one had crab! 
Also had some decent scup. Where? Why? I guess they came a bit further south than usual before turning offshore. 
High man today was Gerald Meadows of Salisbury with 13 nice sea bass and a 21 inch tog. Terry Burgess of York PA barely took the pool with a 19 inch sea bass as Mike Ransing of Bishopville also had a 19 incher – heaviest sea bass wins..
Also pictured are TaNNk Moore of Cherry Hill NJ – & George “The Flounder Slayer” Henning of OCMD! 

Captain Chris Mizurak reported a picky bite of tautog today, but they were able to catch plenty of throwbacks with some keepers mixed in.  Weather looks good for this Saturday when Angler will be running a 10 hour sea bass trip from 6AM – 4PM.
