Fiddler crabs don't live under rocks, they dig burrows.

I fished yesterday on a friends boat in the lower bay. We had our 10 keepers to 8lbs by 10am. We released many more keepers and only a few under 16" till we ran out of crabs. Outgoing bite was much better than incoming and 30 ft was the magic numer.

Had suicidal Tog bite on Monday Columbus Day in NNJ.   We intended to go Sea Bassing but the Tog were attacking our hi-low Sea Bass clam rigs.  I switched to jig/crab/spinner and caught them one after another.  My son Brian stayed with Clams all day and caught the biggest blackfish I ever saw in person.  Did not get a measurement because we wanted to release her back safely and quickly - she aggressively swam away to make more babies :) , had to be 15+ lbs - made my 8 lb'er look tiny !
