Blackfish season begins
« on: October 11, 2016, 10:59:00 AM »
The blackfish (Tautog) season started here yesterday but there was a big blow so we held off till this morning. It was a bloodbath, two of us caught about 50 fish up to 8 lbs. The limit is only four each, the eight in the picture weighed almost 40 lbs.

They are awesome fighters, they head straight for bottom and any rock or snag in the area. The interesting thing is that we chum for them with cut up crabs, in only 3-5 feet of water this time of year. You drop the bait to the bottom and they're on it faster than bluegills on a worm. Even the big ones just give little tugs while they crush the crab, you have to be quick as they are expert bait thieves.
