they eat mussels... but they crunch it up, they don't inhale the whole thing. if you set the hook on the hit you might gig one once in a while with that bait.

A lot of the papers out there say that mussels are a large part of a tog's diet. They also eat a lot of sand dollars and barnacles. I still think a regular rig where the tog doesn't feel the weight is best.


Fishing is a lot like yoga, except you get to kill something.

Capt Freddy G had them when I was on his charter a few years ago -- they never left his tackle box.

Hi Z! How're the mussels in Chi-town??

That thing is for sale on that auction site. I just stumbled across it. Looks cool. Useless, but cool.

havent had a fresh piece of seafood since i've been out here, plenty of good steaks but the closest i got to fresh seafood was some fresh farm raised atalntic salmon from chile, i would kill for a FRESH broiled cod platter from a little place in bristol pa i used to go to.

Too bad. I guess there's always lobster, they travel pretty well, but it's probably $15 a pound out there.
