After months of fuel issues, rebuilt carbs and lousy weather, I finally got a chance to splash the AllyKat on sunday. Saturday being the perfect wether day was no good for us. I did stop by Cow Harbor and chatted up Mark and Phil for a bit, walking out with green crabs and special orange painted tog rigs.



Rob and Grover were anxious also, both showing up 1/2 hour early..no problem, I was ready. Got to the ramp around 7:30 am and motored out to the snotty Sound. Easy 3-5 footer from the constant 20 kts North wind had us slowly motoring northwest, trying not to soak anyone, settling on a spot not far from Eatons.



Luckily, it only took one drop of the hook for us to get on some nice bottom around 35 feet, and finally, we were fishing. The boat was swinging pretty good, but that was OK, considering no one lost any rigs, and the fish were biting. Plenty of porgies still around, along with some keeper sea bass. Water temps were 59 degrees.



The first Tog came abaord about a 1/2 hour in, and it was a nice 18 incher that got bled out and on ice along with a couple of bass and scup. I managed one more keeper throughout the morning. Rob was oh so close a few times with togs just under 16 inches...heartbreakers, but they went back.



We called it a day around noon with plenty of big rollers still pushing us around. A few surprise 6 footers from the east caught us off guard a few times. Somehow, the hook never pulled on us although it did move at one point. Nasty conditions on sunday, no surprise there was only two other boats we saw all day.



As for the Cow Harbor Orange Tog Rig....outfished the standard rigs 4 to 1....no lie. Those guys couldn't believe the action I had..instant life every time I dropped down. Ended the day with countless porgies, a dozen sea bass, and about 6 togs for myself. Came home with 2 of each.



Also went on the South Shore last weekend with my cousin. It was too nasty to make it into the ocean, but we did manage some short togs along the Wantaugh bridge, with one being a keeper.



Nice to be back on the water. Looking forward to a few more trips before its all over.

Glad to hear you're back in action and putting fish in the boat. Good job in tough conditions. With the steady N/NW winds I didn't head out yesterday....Ed
