Canal Blackfish
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.

Slow Day At the Canal
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.

Pt. Pleasant Canal 8-25-18
Cliff and I fished the canal today. Boat traffic was heavy, but we still had a good day. We fished most of the incoming tide and a little of the outgoing and managed 65 tautog and 1 schoolie bass all on green crab. All throwbacks today, we had four over 14 inches, but under 15.

SkolmannI’m going to start swing by the canal either on my way or coming from the inlet where I’ve been doing good with fluke. Heard there was a nice blitz of #2-4 bluefish there yesterday afternoon

SkolmannDo you ever fish the south jetty at Barnegat Inlet for blackfish ? I haven’t in a few years but might head back this year.

snick4444 @skolmann yeah i've heard the blues are starting to make their way back in. That's good that you are still getting fluke, down in Great Bay where I am it's starting to die off back bay wise. I have never fished the Barnegat Jetty, but this one guy i used to work with swears by it. He has had a couple close calls falling off the rocks though, maybe that's wise I stay away from it lol

First Tautog Trip of the Season
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.

Canal Keeper
Slower bite today but still managed to cull my limit of one keeper tog.

Can’t wait for the limit to increase in a few days.

Double Banger
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.

Canal Blackfish
One of about a dozen tog (tautog, blackfish) that I caught today in 2.5 hours of fishing. Fished the last hour of the outgoing tide through the slack and the first 1.5 hours of the incoming tide. The one in the picture was the only one be of legal size but I still released it.

Sam CaramelaI was told any way you can cook them is good. These were just big enough, but I put them back. Right now you can only take 1 @ 15". Come Nov. 16, you can take 6 until the end of the year. I'll bring my cooler then.
