Fishing Report:
Cliff, Cliff, and I fished daybreak to about 9am on Sunday. It was a slow day fish wise (probably because of the boat parade that took place with all the boats heading out for stripers), as we only landed 15 fish between the three of us. But we did manage two keepers. Cliff managed a keeper just over 15 inches and my keeper was 16 inches.

Started off fishing the inlet the bite wasn’t happening. Moved to me spot at the canal. Tide was just about high slack. Had a nice bite through the rest of the tide and through the slack. Bite backed off once the tide turned.

Fishing Report:
First time that I hit the canal this fall. Bite was picky as they’d bite for 10-15 minutes then stop for the same length of time. My son did catch a 16” keeper on a jig. Fished from high water slack into the first half of the out going tide.

Fishing Report:
Cliff and I fished the canal for about 4 hours from 6:15-10:15am. We only managed 16 total tog, which is a very slow day for us there. We think it was because the water temp was up to 75 degrees today from all the warm weather. Cliff did manage the first keeper since tautog season reopened. A nice 16 inch fish pictured above.

Fishing Report:
Since Tautog reopened on the 1st, Cliff and I decided to try out the canal today before it rained. We stuck it out through the first bad patch of rain and luckily left right before it got real bad. We fished all of the outgoing tide from 5:30am till about 11 landing 42 throwback Tautog. Not a bad day, especially since we usually do better with the incoming tide. A few oyster crackers and a sea bass we're also caught. A guy across the canal also hooked into what looked like a small bass.

Savage blackfish bite for me in the Point Pleasant Canal today. Every cast resulted in a bite. I even managed to bang out this double header.

Fishing Report:
Here is a Tautog aka Blackfish smiling before being filleted. Their teeth look almost human, yet scary at times. Despite the teeth, you can actually stick your finger in their mouth and they will not bite you.
