Bay Pullage!

Had a great couple of hours at the Third and Fourth Islands of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel on my jet ski yesterday. Caught around 20 Tautogs using live fiddler crabs for bait. It was slow early on but when the tide got right it was a steady bite.

I pulled up one Tog that had apparently just voted.

He voted for the losing candidate, I voted for the winner, so as they say " To the victor goes the spoils" .

Last night I made Tog Stir Fry.

While I was fishing I also took samples of the fish I caught ( a 1/4 inch of their dorsal fin ) for a genetic/ migration study that the Virginia Institute of Marine Science is doing. This is the second year they asked me to do this.

Great photo's as usual. I appaud your efforts in the research of theblackfish you have caught. Must have been tough collecting samples and writing down info on a jet ski while fishing.

 

Good job

JSB, what family of fish do those tautog's belong to? With those fat lips I want to think wrasse or parrot? The one fish with the bloody lip - did you punch him in the mouth?


What kind of camera set up are you using? Something you keep around your neck at the ready?
