First off….Happy New Year!!  I was sailing the high seas last week on a family vacation and I must say its nice to be back! I understand the weather was pretty nice while I was gone and today was another beauty.  A long sleeve shirt was good for me and with little wind it was a great day for some of the Fish in OC fleet to get out on the drink and bend some rods.

Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star takes advantage of the nice weather whenever its available and this time of year he is in search of the elusive tautog.  Short notice, but there is room on tomorrow’s 12 hour tog trip if you’re interested.

Hi Scott, 
Put some nice tog in the boat today. The nicest one we put back, along with a bunch of others. 
Have room for tomorrow‘s 12 hour tog trip. Pushed it back to departing at 5 sharp. (Sharp because I often leave early..)
Jeremy Harrington of Reston, VA limited and could have twice. Up against some serious skill, he took everyone’s money with a jumbo 24.75 inch bull that we tagged and returned to the gene pool. 
Biggest in the group shot is Walter Moore’s 23.75 incher. Also pictured are Rich DerAris of Dix Hills, NY and Chuck Ladenheim of NY. 
As good as it was, I still had clients keeper-skunked. Maybe even skunk-skunked! Tis the cruelest fishery I have.

Captain Brian Behe of Buffalo Hunter Guide Service took advantage of today’s nice weather and treated some clients to a nice day on the beautiful Pocomoke River.  The group enjoyed steady action all day with lots of nice crappie, a few pickerel and some largemouth bass.  The guys kept 15 slab sized crappie and everything else went back.

Dante Soriente of MagicTail Bucktails sent me this photo of this jumbo tautog that he caught on one of his tog “jigs”.
