« Previous Report Next Report »

Today, Captain Eric of the Minerva, hosted my son and me for a late season togging day. We headed out of Port Chester to our favorite spot of the season off of Rye. Stiff Northeast wind made for rough seas. We anchored up in 2-3 footers in about 25 feet of water. After about 15 minutes, the fish found us, and we quickly caught 10 tog in the 13-14 inch range. Then, we dragged anchor and could not hold well again, nor did we find the fish again. We tried a few spots but the cold wind, difficulty holding anchor, and lack of a bite led us to end the trip. We spoke to a party boat that was near us. They had only 6 shorts for the whole trip with about 20 fares. Highlight of our day was our British friend Martin catching his first tog. Captain Eric had the hot hand today. I think the big problem today was the wind/waves. There were still fish out there and biting. Maybe we'll get another few days in before we haul the first week of December.

Got out yesterday in an attempt to find some sheltered structure and didnt realize what we were in for until we passed Huckelberry. Victory at Sea ensued.

Winded up trying to find some rocks behind Hart with no luck, and then tried a last ditch spot behind Columbia for not even a bite. Water temp 50-51.

Fingers crossed there's still a few around.
