Today was my first tog trip of the season. After stopping to see mark at Cow Harbor B&T for some greens I was off to the boat. Made my way across a slightly sloppy sound to the area I wanted to fish. My Raymarine GPS antenna picked today to cease working. It's been very slow to acquire the satellites the last few trips out so I knew it was on it's way out. I was hoping to get the rest of the season out of it though.

Using shore ranges I set up on a piece in 12' of water and had instant life. By adjusting the anchor rode I was able to have life all through the ebb, slack, and beginning of the flood. Fished in depths between 12' and 16'. Lost count of the # of tog I landed, with many shorts and quite a few keepers. Only landed 2 porgies which was nice to see.

Fished exclusively with Tidal Tail jigs and halved greens. The 1/2 oz. size was the one. I used my 6'3" Shimano Trevala with a 2500 C14 Stradic and 10lb. braid. A 3' length of 30 Ande mono served as the leader. I brought a total of 9 rods with me and had so much fun with this one I used nothing else. There were 3 tog I hooked that I could not stop. Some big fish in the shallow water. I was reluctant to really give the jigs a shot. Now I'm converted. What a blast hearing the drag scream! Tried the crabs all ways, shelled, shell on, legs on, legs off...all caught fish.

My big one today was 7 lbs. I also had one of 6 and 4. Nice solid fish. Will be back out tomorrow......Ed

FWIW- Plenty of bird life all along the rip line from 13 to the OB with small blues under them. Jigged a few on the way out to the tog grounds.

Rigged and ready!!

Nice brace of shallow water tog

7 lbs
