It was a very nice December day today in and around Ocean City.  The winds were relatively light, it was sunny and temperatures were nice at around 60 degrees for the high.  The little bit of wind on top of swell had the inlet “jacked up”, but it was doable for Captain Monty Hawkins and the crew of the Morning Star.

Hi Scott,

Been putting in 12 hour sea bass trips; today’s 10 hour tog run seemed a walk in the park. Though leftover swell from yesterday’s front made the inlet a cabbage patch this morning, the day would get calmer—even very nice—until 2:30 when winds switched North. 
The tog bite was so-so. Although a few clients goose-egged on keepers, three others would have limited out. 
Would have? 
Seems more & more of the fellows who really live for blackfish (tog) are glad to throw back a few legal females. 
On my boat we do tog pools by length. Many times over the years the pool winner has been a fish tagged and put back. We count the release length noted on the tag card same as any fish in the cooler. 
Today’s pool winner, however, was a 21.25 inch male caught by Ben Strahl of Berlin. Also pictured are Jason Penn of Pikesville, MD – JoJo from Brooklyn, NY – &  Cho Hyun of Fairfax, VA.
